OK <B>this guy </B>is me. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>this is my first set of chrome wheels BTW . I was going for an OEM plus /sleeper look. (300 hp w/ 1.6D emblem) which is why I wanted to trade my Evolve R5s for 18" C70 Mirzams ..... then , I got something sweet, 17" Sadria from a C70... wow my car would be rare!!! ha ha , these are the same as Sparticus (just 1/2 wider and 45 offset) still nice just not rare. <p>came across these zuracs in chrome... The seller was suggusting painting them and using them for winter. nope not me. They're on the car. <p>They match my eurospec Waterfall grill... now I just need some chrome mirror caps to fit an 05 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>here's a pic, <p><IMG SRC="http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm55/chrise9172/Zurac.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> That said, I'm not a fan of chrome, but on black cars it looks better, and I don't think it looks bad on your car. To each their own. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: OMG ..Chrome wheels on our cars? (V50_T5)

I don't mind chrome wheels but I am not sure I like the "thinness" of the wheels. I think I would like them better if they had a thicker rim. They seem really too light for the car. For Chrome I have always liked the classic 5 spoke star wheels/mags. Chrome Pegs would look better. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (sanatarium)

...don't forget to jack up the back a little... oh, and the fuzzy dice! Can't forget the fuzzy dice! <p>...don't tell anyone, but I kinda like it. I'm pretty sure I'd go chrome if I had a black car. Stand alone, but proud!

Re: (S40Racer)

OK .. enough with the jokes!!!! <p>Seriously , there's no way I'd go with Altezza lights ! (even if I can get them from JC Whitney for $179.95 plus $14.95 shipping) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>the fuzzy dice, hmm , I thought of it but already got a dangling moose!!! from the mirror. <p>Spinners = not legal here <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> (NOT that I'd be interested or anything... just remembering a "friend" telling me this) <p>won't jack up the rear but thought of lowering the front a tad more perhaps another inch... with coil-overs<p>thanks everyone.... <p>
