      Right on Andy!! Looks hot diggity damn sexy, I especially like this rain shot.

      I assume no rubbing at all, bigger question is do you think a 40MM or 35MM offset would work.... looks like you went with the 20x8 45MM offset right?

      If you stick with 20X8 you will be good with a 40mm Offset..... If you go with 20X8.5 then you will need to stick with 45mm

      35mm heck nooooo........

      Ok, I was shooting for a 20x8.5 43MM with 255/35/20

      Nice! I feel with the dark wheels, you should replace all the chrome around the car with some black vinyl for an even more aggressive look.

      How is the fit? any rubbing?

      I guess 20x9 et40 won't work?

      The fit is perfect.... no rubbing at all, and the tires are really nice and quiet.

      I am not sure.... I guess if you dont lower the car then you be ok with 20X9 Et40

      no spacers my friend.... its perfect the way it is..... no need for rubbing

      can you take a pic from the rear and the front to see how flush it is with the fenders? I'm liking the under lights pics.

      I was searching through the thread but couldn't find the specs of the OZ wheels you got. What are the specs?

      X2 on the pics Andy!! Car looks outstanding, but in some of the pics (may just be the angle) looks like the sit inside the fender a bit.... maybe 10MM (Ok, now I am just dreaming so I can run a 40MM offset on a 20x9). Anyways, I am jealous.... if you dont mind us bothering, a few pics to see how flush it is would be great!!

      Im all over the place
      TSW Interlagos is nice, and forged (so lightweight and strong).
      20x8.5 et43


      AMG (oem is et43, and replicas are all et35) 20x8.5"


      If we can stuf the 20x9, I love the Audi replicas:


      Vossen makes some seriously nice wheels, this can be had in a 20x8.5 et44



      Also, was set on Conti DWS in a 255/35/20, but if I stick with a 245/35/20, I can run the same Toyo Andy is running, and I hear phenominal reviews on those.

      All nice wheels. I posted on my wheel fitment thread so I don't clog up and thread jack Andy's awesome thread.

      Yeah, and then I could experiment with staggering the rear..... !!! All in due time, this month will do the drop first, and leave it on the 19s for a bit.

      I am also really diggin this wheel because its forged.... I think only 23 lbs in 20" and fitment would be pretty close to perfect!

      Crazy how that window tint really sets off the dark wheels. Or the other way around. Just an awesome looking setup in my opinion. When I first saw pictures of the B7 it struck me as slab-sided., but it really has grown on me. Can't wait to drive one.
