      Curious if you know what the actual rim width is from those guys? They list it as 19x8, 19x8.5, and 19x9 depending on where you look on that page.

      I've decided on these too but can't decide if I should get the Hartmann which is 8.5 or go with the replica on eBay which is 8. Hartmann hcc 305 is 243 on sale normally 285 a wheel and the ones on eBay are only 175. Does the .5 of an inch really make that big of a difference other than weight. My other concern is build quality. Id like to assume the Hartmann is a better product?

      That is pretty much exactly what I want to make mine look like. It looks great!

      Are you lowered yet? Hard to tell from the pic posted here.

      Any lowering plans? From snobrdrdan's reviews I'm planning to go Eibach springs for the time being, just seeing if I'm developing a clone out here.

      Was thinking about this....but my car has 47k miles,soon(around 55k or 60k) i would have to replace shocks so im thinking going with koni coilovers instead oem shocks

      Also im really afraid of damaging my front lip if the car would be lowered...

      It would look really nice but then i would have to be very careful driving on chiago streets


      So i dont know ...still u undecided

      How are the Achilles Sport ATR tires? I was going to get those tires for my 18" Interlagoswheels, since I was on a budget, but got something else instead cause almost all of the dealers I've called are out of it and it's back ordered for months. I've read lots of good review about it, although, I'd like to hear from someone who have first hand experience.

      Love the stance your your car, btw. I still can't believe that it's not lowered .

      Apologies for reviving this post!

      What tires are you running?

      man It looks sweet. I rather go from 17 to 19 than from 17 to 18 , dont want to spend money for 1 inch difference


      And im sure 19 inch rims even on stock suspension would look great with gold coast body kit ( it makes the car look lower)
      I did some homework on this beautiful CC and its there 235/35/19 on DG Springs! Looks amazing!

      By any chance do you have a side pic of the rims on your car? I'm looking at a setup with the same offset, rim width and tires and I want to have a visual idea of how flush they are with the fender. Thanks!

      Good choice in rims BTW.

      Sorry to threadjack but quick question, which Interlagos/Turbine reps would you recommend out of these. Brand/Seller wise....
