Allright here it is in the driveway. Had to push it out for some pics, nevermind the civic in the background!
One of these is the car with BMW 14" mesh. The others are of my Audi Aeros. I had them powdercoated Silver then black to get the perfect color. They look unbelievable up close!

Re: My "new" wheels! (chandlerGTi)

Looks nice... you should drive up to Chicago sometime when the weather's nicer. Nice to see another A1 in the area...
Too nice for the car? Car looked nice in the pics... actually, I think that they fit the car pretty well with it's black and white color scheme. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: My "new" wheels! (detour1999)

Thanks for the encouragement, I look at my car and I see the problems...I guess it isn't so bad. I really like the wheels but I did get the adaptors since they are 4x108 and they have 42mm backspacing so to get them out to the edge of the flares I needed just over an inch! An inch

You have 4X100 to 4X108 Adaptors? From where and how much?

Chassistech. They make lift kits/drop kits for trucks mostly but had advertised wheel adaptors so I gave them a try. Ask for Derek. 800 842 8789

Re: My "new" wheels! (chandlerGTi)

Got my tires put on at lunch, they are 195/60/14. I went with a taller profile because I will put lotsa miles on and the roads here blow. With the Neuspeed 1.25 drop and Bilsteins it sits pretty well. I have been rolling it around with a set of e30 14" basketweaves for the last six months so it will be nice when the wheels are on. I also have a set of Type C's(16") and a set of 15" "snowflake wheels lined up for it so I'll have my choices!

Re: My "new" wheels! (maclane)

Sorry one pic has a Breyton from my old 5 in it. I'm focusing on the 4 lug audi wheels mounted on the car. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
