Re: SuperTurismos w/TME springs (pino)

Looks nice, kinda looks like the 17" Tethys wheels that come on the T5. All you people getting TME springs is really starting to make me think of getting a set. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

When you get close you can see the details that make the wheel look different.

Re: SuperTurismos w/TME springs (pino)

More to this is that O.Z. wheels are great. The Ultra, Super III, and Super Turismos<p>You can not go wrong with O.Z. I just got the forged but do not hate me because they are so expensive

They look like the Tethys to me. For some reason, the wheels look small. But they look good!<p>Side note, you are 34 and you have a 355? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: SuperTurismos w/TME springs (mike_c70)

Thanks for all of the positive comments!<br>It is really hard to show the detail and dimensions of this wheel via photos.<br>In real life, the difference between the Tethys and O.Z. are more pronounced.<br>Here are a few more:<br><IMG SRC="http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/8449/dsc006276qx.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/6295/dsc006280wj.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/1222/dsc006301gs.jpg" BORDER="0">
