      Hello All...I finally got new wheels and got tires mounted and put on this morning. I was really wanting the RS4 reps but my wife did a suprise move and ordered these for me. They are Konig Illusion 18x8 45 offset with 225/40R18 Firestone Indy 500 wide oval tires.

      I wasn't so sure about the black, but they came out looking pretty good! Here's some quick pictures I snapped with my phone (not the best), can't wait until the weather is better and I can get her all shined up

      Next up, 1.5 - 2" drop and an exhaust (probably beginning of next year).

      Updated with some bigger photos

      Rims look great! I had seen these in a Tire Rack brochure and they looked pretty unique in the way they are accented.

      Thanks! I updated the photos with some from imageshack, little higher res than the original I posted.


      Yeah, I wasn't sure about them but my wife sure was! The accents look good with how little chrome I have on the car

      I got a few more pictures and threw them up there too. I wasn't sure about the black at first but the more I look at it the more I like this look

      Thanks! Wow, my wife just got done telling me that I need to research what it would take to put disc brakes in the rear and replace those drums. This is a first that she suggested a mod to me! 10 years of marrige is getting good...lol.

      Any ideas on doing that type of a conversion? I must say it's a mod I've never done before!
