New tires/wheels on the way

Since my original rears were worn out, I decided to splurge on BBS RK wheels and Yoko AVS ES100 tires from Tire Rack (of course). It was way too easy to call Gary and make it happen. I placed the order at noon Friday and they shipped from Reno the same day! They should arrive here Tuesay.


Am I anxious? You bet. The RK/Yoko combo should weigh 12 lbs less than the stock wheel and tire.

17" or 18"? Please post pics when they're on your car. BBS RK wheels are nice.

Hey HW< I saw all your posts when I searched the Tire forum. Thanks for posting the picture of your car - confirms that I got the right wheels - light, strong, good looking and nicely priced!

Will post pictures when I get them.
