So I recently picked up a set of new wheels. These wheels are probably going to find their way onto my girlfriend's S60 eventually, but I was dying using my stockies so I got these put on until I decide what I want to do for my car. The wheels are ADR 19x8, ET 38. I really like the lip of the wheels, not sure on the color of the hearts yet, but I think they will do just fine for now. If I were to keep them on my car I think I would change them inner piece to a gunmetal, hyper silver, or anthracite. Enjoy the pics!<br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620509441_775614441_1602813_290993_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620514441_775614441_1602814_5043911_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620519441_775614441_1602815_5732216_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620524441_775614441_1602816_323808_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620534441_775614441_1602818_5087842_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620549441_775614441_1602820_7101845_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_69620559441_775614441_1602822_7958137_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><BR><BR>

Thanks for the honest opinions guys! I won't lie, I liked the more "clean" look of the Hiros more, but these ones are growing on me. They've only been on since about 5pm today so I haven't had too much time to look at them yet...I don't like the interior color very much, but like I said in the original post, a powder coat would fix that up pretty easily. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (crossie)

Not the biggest fan. I don't like ADR to begin with. But, sorry to hear about your Axis... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

They would look better in a different color. Let's just say Black.<br><IMG SRC="http://photos.wakeboarder.com/data/500/CIMG5780.JPG" BORDER="0">

Re: (cicatrizdare)

Honestly I think they look pretty darn good. And remember, a picture can only do so much for a car (and its wheels)... I bet they look pretty awesome in person. <p>I would have to agree though, they would look better in either anthracite or gun metal. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks for the input guys. <br>Northern: No, I have a stock wing/spoiler that I recently took off. I have a project planned for this summer, but right now am just about into finals and have some major projects due in the next couple days, so car stuff has taken a back burner...

Not a big fan of multi-piece or multi-piece-looking wheels, personally.<p>Not bad though, I think the wheels suit the car pretty well.

Re: Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

That's cool. Any word on that S40 that you posted about a little while ago? Or have you found a different one?

Re: Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

That's cool. Black is the best color for our cars, but I am obviously biased. Is it a black interior or a beige? I have only seen maybe 2 other black on blacks, and JRL said that combo isn't very common so I feel special, lol.
