Picture Test for Wheel Post

Michael,<p>It might take a few moments for all of the images to load. I organized the pictures into groups by wheel position (LF = left front, LR = left rear, etc.) and included captions under the photos as I thought they were needed. The car was washed on Sunday, so the wheels are still fairly clean. I probably went overboard on the photos. My hope is that these pictures convey the good care that I have taken with everything on this car. The wheels are in excellent condition, taking into account the replacement rim for the one that was curbed <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">. <p>Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

When the wheels are off the car, with tires removed, I will polish this portion of the wheel to remove the blemish.
