Inga got some new Italian shoes...

Ultraleggeras arrived yesterday, got them on today. Would have put them on yesterday, but a little busy. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyways, definitely can tell they are lighter weight when hitting the gas pedal, when I have some more time and it stops pouring, will try some G-Tech runs. <p>While I definitely prefer split 5 spoke, these look pretty sweet IMO. Silver is even brighter than Pegs (didn't think that was possible). Really show off the brakes, and you can see my stance is PERFECT now with TME springs.<p>I am running a 10mm spacer in the back, with ET38 is like a 18mm spacer, seems like a lot. But 15mm work fine with 235s, so with the slight negative camber, it matches the front and doesn't stick out at top of fender. <p>Between Ultraleggera's losing 9.4 lbs versus 18" Pegs and 235 Kumho Ecsa SPTs being lighter than 245 BFG KDW2s, I've lost about 12 lbs of unsprung rotating mass. Should be fun at the Ring. <p><IMG SRC="http://img327.imageshack.us/img327/7201/1005043medium9sb.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img327.imageshack.us/img327/6233/1005042medium0fs.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img334.imageshack.us/img334/6559/1005041medium6ti.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img327.imageshack.us/img327/3014/1005040medium9tp.jpg" BORDER="0">

Looking good Kelly! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I'm really liking the Ultraleggeras. Too bad it's not listed for a fitment for my <b><i>R</i></b> on TireRack's site.<br>

Hm.. Doesn't look as good as I hoped it would look..<p>Maybe because the car itself is a bit boring? I mean all grey...<p>I think I need to see them in real. Had the same feeling with the OZ Superturismo on my S70.<p>

Do not listen to Johann and his wacky "aftermarket wheels look small"<p>Johann is the new peg so there is no changing his mind

Why do yours look bigger? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> They do look like 19's <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I like O.Z. wheels too

R Kelly...Those wheels definately look sharp on the car...interested in seeing what the G-Tech says...It has been a beautiful day here and I have been driving all day...Butt Dyno definately thinks that with the new O.Z. wheels the car accelerates a bit quicker.

Not sure if I would call the car "boring" but I cannot fault you with the overall interpretation of the picture. These wheels would look nice on a different car or even a different color Volvo. <p>Yannis
