Had them on the car for a few weeks now, just didn't take any pictures. They are 18" ssw 019 multyspoke wheels wrapped in falken ziex 512 all season high perf. Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the images, the digi cam I have is not that great. I also have a set of chrome lug caps that I will be putting on to cover the rusted ones.<p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/3289a896.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/fd38837a.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/f8775294.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/1d059360.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/d56770ac.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/680a8def.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/2846bd35.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c382/drinka5thofvodka/6.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: New wheel pics and wash (S60 t5er)

Pics are a little dark, difficult to see the detail on the wheels. Where did you get them btw?

Very nice. A tad flashy for my tastes, but still quite stylish. BTW, what level of tint do you have on your windows?

How is one who enforces such a law, know the difference between the factory and aftermarket tinting?

I have a friend who has limo tint on his truck and when he goes in to get his State Inspection sticker (which reminds me to do mine 4 months overdue <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">) he just rolls down his front windows, he gets away with it all the time. Maybe TX is much different than where everyone else is, I have NEVER heard of tint laws being enforced here.
