      what's that rear wheel slant called? and did he do that or is it just the way the wheel sits? I saw someone's quote as "to get a rear wheel slant take a towel and hit the towel over the rim while its jacked w a rubber mallet like 25 times to get slant" I don't think he was serious, but I think its the same thing

      love the overall car and the details! great job of bringing the quality of the car out in the photos! bumpers, fenders, grille and fenders (rear could use a more pronounced body line) are all spot on and the interior is superb, but the wheels really bring it down IMO. it takes a lot to make a car of this level look just average, but these alphards do it.

      I will agree that alphards are a love or hate wheel, but I think they are a classy wheel and are definitely pulled off extremely well by my car. The wheels are also custom with polished faces and color matched inserts which takes them to the custom level of the rest of the car. I respect your opinion about the wheels, but to say the wheels make my car look average is just I built the car for my style and taste and I'm extremely happy with the outcome...

      Def one of my favorite cars around, just to say though that the wheels bring it down is riches attention to detail really brings the car together from the custom air setup and molded controlled to the calipers and yes the wheels.



      All I have to say is

      I don't mean any disrespect and that's why I made a point to say what was great about the car. The photographer did a great job of showcasing the quality, but it's easy to look past this car as a standard vortex-edition mkv. It's obviously much more than that and you're the only one that needs to be satisfied, but I think your car would greatly benefit from some unique and legit wheels. I probably liked alphards at some time too, but 4 years and probably 30+ mkvs later, not as exciting.
