First off I must say Tirerack is amazing, ordered on monday, and got them today. Well anyway they are 17" Oz Chronos(ya I know should of got 18's, But with this area I just figured the 17's well be better for pothole resistance) and Bridgestone Potenza RE-11's. Anyway took some generic pics...plain and simple but i like the location, so I will return with a tripod, and actually configure the cam. haha.<p><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i171/k5blaz3r/chrono006.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i171/k5blaz3r/chrono007.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i171/k5blaz3r/chrono017.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i171/k5blaz3r/chrono023.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i171/k5blaz3r/chrono027.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Ya...in hindsight should of got 18's But, im happy and im really liking the Potenza Re11's.<BR><BR>

Very cool, I haven't seen those wheels on an R before. They don't look like they are 18's though because of the lip. <p>Oh, I assume that you know that the winglets are missings?

Congrats! <br>The first photo looks very nice, especially the rear. <br>I still think 18's are the way to go...but what do I know <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Ever thought about tinting your car?

Re: (GiRaff3)

Yes, 17's seem a better choice to me for daily use, at some time I will get a set of 18's(or 19's) of some type and i will end up putting winglets back on the car... one of them got pretty messed up because of the winter, and got totally destroyed pulling into my friends driveway. But thanks. I do like them. And it was nice talking to you today Giraffe.

Re: (B.G.)

I still am not a fan of Chrono's. I like the design, but because of the spoke / lip interface it makes the wheels visually smaller than they are. <p><br>

Nice wheels. They remind me of my old Enkei RS5 wheels that I used for winter. Much lighter than the stock pegs, too! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
