'tis the season to don the summers, and thanks to Gary, TiNord has a beautiful new pair of shoes. Right now, I'm using a 10mm spacer up front and 15mm in the rear. The rims require a 5mm spacer to clear the calipers, and I'm feeling like the 10/15 combo is too much. Should I keep it as-is, or throw on the 5/10 combo? <p><IMG SRC="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa305/athruc/Volvo/Pegs/DSC01811.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa305/athruc/Volvo/Pegs/DSC01808.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa305/athruc/Volvo/Pegs/DSC01809.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa305/athruc/Volvo/Pegs/DSC01810.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Lower it. For some reason it is sitting high like a monster truck.

I agree. Lowered it'll look better. As it sits now I vote for the 5/10 combo because the rears doesn't look flush from the pics.<p>Neither does the front actually.

Re: (GiRaff3)

lol, yeah, the total diameter of the rim/tire is smaller than my 17's!<p>I have the springs, but don't want to put them on (as I have a feeling that US Bank will try to eff me when it comes time to negotiate the buyout...)

Re: (T5 for Life)

For all intensive purposes, I was going to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease, but seeing what's happening to resale prices and knowing what I'll owe, I don't want to put myself into that asinine of a financial position <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Wheels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Too much ...they need to tuck in... but the whole lowering thing is a conundrum considering whether or not your buying the car...

Re: (Forced5)

I would go 5/10 to tuck the wheels in. Then you should sell me your 15 mm spacers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (dectech1)

I am amazed at how repulsed I am by the way those rims stick out. I like the rims, but the wheels sticking out like that make it look like a cheap ghetto hooptie. Less is more! Nice looking rims though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Adam, they look good dude!<p>As most of the peanut gallery has stated, the car needs to be lowered and the spacers need to be reduced. Other than that, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
