New wheels and tires on a Sunday afternoon.
 
3 Attachment(s)
Just thought I'd throw out some photos of my new wheels and tires (BBS RG-R w/Black Diamond Finish 18"x8.5" and Goodyear F1 GS-D3 225/40 R18). Thanks to everyone who helped answer questions I submitted/PM'd over the past couple of months. All very much appreciated.

Riding a little high now...the wagon goes to the shop this Thursday for ACS springs and Rogue Eng. RSM's.

Let me know what you think of the blackout grill? A friend of mine thinks it didn't look right, since the car has black moldings. Do you think I should go back to chrome kidneys, keeping the black slats? I could do either.

Yeah, looks good. I like the black grill. Good thing you are dropping her though.

Looks good. Damn that's a 4x4!

My car was nowhere that high with same tire/wheel specs, but mine has sport package and isn't a wagon.

With that stance and color, just paint "01" on the doors, a southern cross on the roof, and you're all set. :thumbup:

No doubt...my car does look orange. Bad lighting, coupled with the fact that I can't take pictures worth a crap add to the Bo & Luke Duke affect. Tonight, I'm running moonshine over the border into NY :)

Will post new pics when lowered.

John,

Just re-installed the chrome surrounds, but left the black slats. I think the chrome surrounds complement the wheels better. The black slats give it just enough punch. I have an M-Tech bumper sitting in my living room which will get painted and installed next, after the springs. When I was at Circle BMW picking up the bumper, they said they could order the hood washer grill primed (PN 51137075323) or unprimed (PN 51137075324) for something like $20. If you pick one up or paint yours, be sure to post some pics.
