It is in my experience that most of the wagons in the US are in the northeast, especially in places like North Jersey and PA and basically anywhere with mountains. But that doesn't mean that the majority of people like wagons. They have a boring image except to enthusiasts. I can drive this and be a secret car enthusiast. That's actually very nice.

h2obimmer: yes, you're right.. we dont do it for others :-)

I've noticed, that I didnt put here pics of my winter setup, so here you go..
I bought some breyton magic 18"x8.5" et38 squared, throwed in some old spacers, so final offsets are et23 at front and et13 at rear.. with 215/40 tyres..





that was also first shooting with my new tokina 11-16mm f2.8 which I was dreaming about owning once.. :-)

actually they are not that light :-D much lighter than 121 19" which I had, but they have around 13kgs.. 18" ronal sx which I have at home waiting for next season have aroun 11.5kgs and are 9 and 10" :-)

but at least they are strong, thats good for winter :-)

I like the measures for those Ronal!! WANTZ!
I'm also looking fore some lightweight, but 17" (for "winter" also), coz my Style 63 are way heavy (13kg and 16kg). But they're SUV wheels, must be resistant.

yeah i've noticed their location, i'm shopping for one now and the closest one is in freaking connecticut!!!!

anyway, who cares what haters think; if you spend your time worrying about pleasing them you'll never be happy. Do you for you and no one else.

finally some noteworthy news after a long while..

I had to update the wheel centers so I can put them in sandwich, and its finally done..
put together:





fitted on car..








bad thing is, that I will need spacers, but after the tires will be put on, I will figure out how much wider I can go..
final sizes are:
front:
before - 8.5 ET31
after - 9 ET25

rear:
before - 9.5 ET40
after - 10 ET27

and I will of course run 205/40 front and 215/40 rear tyres..

Wow, those look great! I think a 15mm spacer up front and a 10mm at the rear would be perfect

thanks man :-) lets see how it will look when the tires will be on.. I hope they will stretch enough, but 15mm is too much I think :-) 9" and ET10 is very low.. but maybe 10mm all around.. we'll see :-)
I have 15mm and 25mm ready, so I will throw them on the car and try..

Those wheels and your final "stance" is going to be spot on. Wow. I really like how this car has evolved.

thanks, well led tails isnt my cup of tea, unfortunately they didnt make the design I'd like.. I love the facelift sedan tails, these:


but they dont exist for touring in led version.. but at the moment there are more important things than taillights :-) I like them all red.
