      I don't know, maybe it's just me, or my age or something, but black wheels on such a classy looking car just don't seem to go well together.

      It brings to mind someone who just had all their hub caps stolen and has not had time to get to the auto parts store for replacements.

      Here's a halfway shot:
      Good lawdy, are you on air suspension? (no pun intended) Do the CCs actually sit up that high? I hated the stance of my car everyday 'til I put coils on.

      Ha! Well, mine's not lowered in any way, but that photo does have it exaggerated - just down off the jack with the parking brake set so the suspension's not had a chance to relieve - plus a very wide angle lens view...

      2012 CC R-Line 2.0 TDI 170hp DSG 4motion.
      11-20-2011 06:51 PM #2882
      Installed winter tires (Nokian Hakkapalitta R) on my CC R-line, with Mallory rims that followed the CC when i got it in July.
      Size is 18-235/40. Hopefully no problem as long i have 4motion. Then i washed my car after the instalation.

      Also i washed my summer rims, Sagitta 18-245/30. So now they storage ready for the winter.

      Let me preface by saying this is my FIRST DIY job on my CC. It just snowed and I have not washed my car.

      Got a couple cans of Plasti Dip. Took of each wheel 1 at a time and hand washed it in my garage floor. I did not wash the actual tire. I started with my Driver side front wheel. I will redo that one this week sometime. After the first wheel I knew how I wanted to continue with the rest. I ended up painting the whole rim, inside and out. I popped the VW emblem out also (made a huge difference)! I only put 2 coats on each wheel.

      I will get some pictures in the daylight tomorrow. I will most likely wait till I get back to South Carolina in a couple weeks to redo the project. The temperatures here in Minnesota are in the 30s, will be 60-70s in SC.
