      Yes, an A5 Audi is awesome. Mk5 base model Jetta, meh, it's no Audi.

      That's what I was thinking, I still have the corrado steelies/ nexus set up for actual motoring.. just unsure on how the physics actually pans out on stretched tires... Don't really need to be excreting bricks with every quick heel toe.

      The "stretched" look is definitely not for high speed driving.

      I only offer my assistance........ to hook you up... to all your own decisions.

      there are many place to choose from to get your car tinted
      Can you elaborate on what you are trying to say. Do you know me or my biz, had any experience dealing with me? I am not a dealership. Not sure on what your getting at. I have been around for a long time, not on the vortex but dealing with people on the VW community in Utah. I have done work for people on this board. So not sure why your getting hostel. You are correct there are many places for people to choose from and they can do just that make a choice. As far as the word MOST, yes that is correct, I am not going to tint a 1985 suburban for $125. I am a car enthusiast,and just like to offer a discount to people into the same hobbies as myself, plus it helps to get to know people. I am not trying to become an advertiser here so I will leave it at that , and will not offer anymore of anything that pertains to my biz in the future.

      They are on 185/55 right now... Good tires. So i think that will be my 'actual use' set.


      ...so I'm theory I can stretch the life out of whatever I put on the rotas.

      I can be trendy...


      Although the decision is probably going to come down to $ as well as what I can actually get my hands on. Keep you posted.

      So what your saying is you don't stretch tires? What are you going for? Stance or motorsport

      225/45 maybe, but would i get use of the whole footprint?...

      I Saw a pic of 205/60's what a bunch of balloons.


      Im going to motor.. but i have other wheels for that, and realistically i will not be taking my car to MMP very often. Anyways, did not mean for this to get out of hand...



      have a great day

      Changed the fuel filter and air filter on the durty diesel.

      Not sure if the fuel filter has ever been changed. Unless the PO had a stash of OEM filters.

      And the air filter was the dirtiest air filter I have ever seen.



      Let's just say my 82 runs amazing now... I still have a small stash of maintenance bits to get done though.
