I recently had the pleasure of selling a set of our Hyper Silver V718's to a SoCal local who dropped by our place for a studio shoot. Brian has some future plans for the car that will really pull things together and allow for an aggressive touch while maintaining an overall clean look. I personally think the Hyper Silver 718's contrast the black perfectly and really help to maintain a sense of class. These are our standard Golf spec V718's at 19x8.5 +45
What do you guys think? Post up any comments you've got!
Our V718 are in stock and ready to go, if anyone happens to be interested
My National Guard unit is from Vegas, we did a year in Afghanistan. My Step-Mom totaled my Civic (yeah yeah) while I was away so when I got back I bought my GTI, tax free in NV for military. I have to keep it registered there until April 2011 or else pay the taxes, which were around $2700 or something. So that's why.
I lived in Vegas until 2008 and then moved back home to Cali where I was born.
Yeah, I know he had to touch them up a bit, the white backdrop they have there is amazing, but the floor gets some scuffing from rolling the cars out there. Edited out, you can't tell but that might have played into any distortions or matting of the car. I had just washed and waxed her two days before this so believe me, she was shiny from top to bottom! Turtle Wax Black Box (PITA) but works great!
How's it ride with the new wheels and tires? I'm on Konis and stock 18s and think it's fine now, but curious if that would change for the worse on 19s.
Also, any rubbing with wider wheel and more aggressive offset. It looks good, but rubbing would kill it for me.
I tend to drive too fast to have a car that is slammed so I've been trying to find a happy medium. The good thing about the 19's is that I still have good ground clearance no matter how low I've gone.
Most people who ride in my car can't stop complimenting how smooth the ride is and find it hard to believe that I'm on coils. Like anything else, what's good for one person might not be to the taste of the next.
