Those are going to look great! I think that color of Atreus will look awesome on your color car. I was picturing the black accented ones, but these will look better IMO. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I think they are 18x8 and his old wheels were 16 inches. Which is why they look pretty dwarfed in the background. Anyway nice buy!

Re: (S40DaB)

Yes they are 18's. I think that I am going to be a guinea pig for the forum. I am going to try the Fierce 225/40/18 HP tires. Getting them at a really good price, they are the equivalent of the Goodyear F1 A/S. What do you guys think???

Re: (sneyeper13)

Got the Fierce Tires installed. Apparently they are so popular they are on back order nation wide!!!! The combination of my new wheels and tires the car has a wider stance and actually looks like it has a pair!!!! lol Anyway will post pictures later. <p>Btw the tires ride so well, they are grippy as hell and and has a smooth ride..... I think they were a good choice but that is my initial reaction of the tires....

Why the angry face in your sig after your tires? Is it because they're fierce? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
