Change out those corners and tails quick! Clears would definitely look 10x better.

Congrats on the first mods btw!

What does everyone think about Black or Gunmetal 19" CSL's on a silver car? I have dark window tint, smoked all around, and blacked out grills. I know that I'm getting the CSL's from VMR, but I don't know which color will suit the car best. Anybody have an pics? I have a sedan if that means anything...thanks

What tire sizes are you currently running now?

How much are you willing to spend on tires? Kumho SPT's are a pretty bang for the buck deal on Tirerack.com

This is a commercial. I was cruising along, reading Threads (articles) and clicked the next one (turned the page) and there it was a full color double page advertisement.

Damn, is nothing safe anymore?

You think the bandwidth around here is free? It takes a lot of time and $$ to keep this site running. Sponsors help offset those costs.

Perhaps you too could offset those costs by becoming a paying member...

Advertising is one thing... This thread is going to far, in my humble opinion! I try to support anyone who really works hard promoting his product, but not when it's done in this manner. It actually has the opposit effect.

Thanks for contributing your 2 cents.

If you don't like this thread, don't read it. The title clearly states the nature of the posts and sponsors have every right to create threads to show off their products.

Given the constant posts requesting to see pics (even photoshops when necessary) of certain wheels on certain cars, I think this thread is valuable to the community as a whole - what better way to see what the wheels you're interested in buying will look like on your specific car than through a picture gallery. I, for one, enjoy this thread.

I completely agree with you... They do have EVERY RIGHT to creates whatever threads they want. I also have a right to point out it's a "sales thread."

Well thank you Captain Obvious.

Now that we've all been enlightened, how 'bout somebody post up some more pics of VMR wheels and get this thread back on track. We need more shots of those V713s.
