It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.

I had them on my e36 before too, here's how they looked there.




Nice wheels, didn't seem too heavy, never seemed to have a problem with them- finish held up well, no bending or cracking.
The wagon's now riding on the 'black' wheels seen in other pics, which are (I think) VMR V708s.
Sorry for all the non-touring content .

My Ride: is alpine white...
As somebody probably know already I'm almost done with parting out my touring...
Everything is gone except couple things...
Maybe somebody is looking for LEDs tail lights?
I have for sale my LEDs imported from Germany, these are IN-PRO style tails made by DEPO (my favorite by the way).
Before I install these was wraped with red vinyl to protect and also my car is white, red lights on AW looking good IMO.
Basically these are clear/red and still unscratched

I believe $300 shipped sounds decent...

Regards,
mark

need input on BBK or wide LMs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I am trying to make 19 x 9.5 (either et32 or et35) fit on the front of my wagon...I can do it...

BUT

They hit the Stoptech 355mm ST40 calipers

I have the same problem on the sedan with 9.5 LMs - they hit the 380mm Brembo caliper.


So, BBK with 8.5 front or stock 330 brakes with 9.5 front


BTW - I am already running 9.5 et40 in the front of wagon

Check out my touring and let me know what you think. Have Never posted any pictures of it up. Just recently put turner sways, and suspension i got from 330i ZHP/Stuart (by the way the car feels and drives wonderfully and it was great doing business with you!)

thanks
Tom

I may have figured out a work around. I can try to reverse the face - meaning unbolt sections and move the face to the outside. I should still have over 2" of lip that way

^ I have seen people do that to get more lip, do you think there will be any safety issues because the barrel was design to hold the weight of the car in a certain way ?
