      Never really posted pictures of my car because with lowering springs I knew it wasn't low enough for this crowd. I have recently installed coils and now feel its worth sharing. I am running FK Silverlines with no helpers or bumpstops. 19x8.5 all around with -4.2 degrees of camber in the rear and -1.1 in the front. Any questions please ask.

      Those wheels look like 22s. Everything else is nice.

      Replica wheels are like fake boobs. They look good on the outside, but when it comes to quality, Nothing beats the real thing.

      They are VMR V709 19x8.5 all around. I originally wanted a set of Audi B7 A4 Titanium Edition wheels that are 18x8 but they have been discontiuned for a while now. I am not really a fan of buying used wheels (buy someone elses wheels ,get someone elses problems) so when I found these and they are new I jumped on the oppurtuinty. Except for being a bit bigger and wider they are a damn close match to what I wanted.

      Thanks the camber is necessary so I can tuck my rears. I was poking real bad and shaving the sidewall off my tires. Are the titanium wheels new or used.
