Do not get any type of 17" wheels, it looks great as it is.

The only ones I was considering are style 5s or some actual RSs. I just love the super mesh style.

Yeah, I'm gonna Plastidip them white after I get tires put on. They've got rash and I'm gonna fix it on my spring break. For now I'm just going white Plastidip to save time.

Weird. Everywhere else I've seen said they're great. People said they've got good tread life, do well with camber wear, and stretch really well. I guess we'll see. Paid $400 for all 4 through my family's shop, so it isn't a MASSIVE loss if they don't last too long.

i installed them on our TL and about the same time my program manager had them installed on his TL

neither set lasted more than 19k miles and both cars were loud on the highway

I felt bad about putting my wife through that and for recommending them to my boss

But, on that note - our TL goes through tires pretty quickly - the longest lasting to date and quietest are the current Conti DWS

So, maybe it can be more pointed to the TL suspension????

I had Conti DWS on the wheels I got rid of today. I loved them and was going to get them for these, too, but they weren't in stock in my area and I need tires in the morning.

Maybe it could be the TL. I guess I'll found out.

So, tires are mounted and wheels are on the car lmao. I've gotta raise and tighten my coils tomorrow. There's just no way to drive it this low in the back or front. The front wheels turn like 1/2" before rubbing. But damn if it doesn't look good. Lolololol

Is it just me or do the tires seem a little small for the rims?

Thats called stretching. you do that when you have an aggessive fitting rim, so the tire will clear the fender.

No, the rears don't clear, which is why I have to raise and tighten my suspension. Stretch on the rears
