FINALLY got to come home with these wheels. Took forever to get them, but they're on! Perfect fit, couldn't be happier with them!! Completely transformed the look of the car. And my speedo is actually accurate now! <p>Spacers are 30mm in the rear, 25mm in the front. Perfect fit. No rubbing at all. The rear can completely depress without rubbing (BARELY!) and the front has plenty of room. Doesn't even rub at full lock (for those that know the turning radius on 240s, that's pretty impressive). It hurts me to think that my 855 is running 225/35/18s that rub a little bit, and the 245 can take 225/40/18s with tons of room, on lowering springs! <p>Anyways, enjoy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01471.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01472.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01473.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01474.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01475.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I know she still needs some TLC, but the 855 is getting all the attention right now before Carlisle.<p>Daytime shots (sorry it's still dirty):<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01476.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01477.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01478.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01479.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: 245 on 18" Pegs! (Wagoneer)

Looking good, Greg! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I can't see much from the night shots, and the day shots on the 'slope' might be fooling my eyes, but...is the suspension lowered?<p>I know this is a work in progress, but if I might toss a few suggestions your way: window tint & sport exhaust (eliminating that reverse 'S' curve at the end, exiting straight out with a nice tip) would go a LONG way to complete the 'look'. I had my exhaust guy build a 1-stage system, similar to IPD's sport exhaust, & it has a nice, deep tone that compliments the look of the 244...<p>Nice that you (too) have more than 1 project going!<p><br>

Absolutely beautiful!!!<br>Low profile tires here in Las Vegas would destroy the rims... if you have ever been here and have driven off 'The Strip', you would know what I'm talking about. That rim and tire combo wouldn't last a week with the six foot deep pot holes that we have here.
