I mounted the new wheels about 20 minutes before these pictures were taken.
Yeah - I ended up saving about a $100 by buying the tires locally and having them mounted - best thing is that I get lifetime balancing and rotation.fourwhls said:Replicas from wheelexchange.com. 18x8, 18x9.5 $688+shipping.
I ordered the tires from Tirerack and had them mounted locally. It came out to about $115 cheaper doing it that way.
No...it probably says, "WARNING - Cupholder designed to failed within 25 uses!" or "WARNING - use of this cupholder is hazardous to your carpet and wallet!"mgianetto said:Oh by the way what is the warning sticker by the cup holders? Is it to say that drinks in the *pos* cup holders don't stay during low speed turns :rofl:
Great looking car!! I wish mine was that clean. Almost makes me sad that mine looks a little more "aged", and I'm in a 2002 (530). Anyway...was thinking of that same setup, so I have a couple of questions. Is your car lowered at all? What size tires are you running?fourwhls said:Thanks for all the compliments.
To answer a few questions:
I ended up paying right at $1300 for the set after shipping, mounting, and balancing. I am very happy with the quality of the wheels.
No balance issues so far. You can definitely feel the road a little more than the 17s.
Warning sticker will be gone...need to get some goo-b-gone, before I peel.
I took a set of staggered 17" type 32s off the car. I will put them up for sale shortly. They are curb rashed and the clearcoat is peeling. They will work for snow or track wheels, but thats about it.
