Volution wheels on s40's/v50's

I'm tempted on buying these wheels for my car, but one thing is to see them mounted on the s60r and another is on the s40. Anyone has cool definition pics of cars with these wheels?<p>Btw what's the tire size you use?<p>I can legally use 215/45/r18 (it's the only one the cars registry shows, for now)<br>or 235/40r18?<br>or 225/40r18?<p>Thanks

Yea, I do have the eibach lowering springs. I haven't had any rubbing issues. I can definitely feel that the ride is harsher compared to when I had stock springs and 16" wheels. However, I do not think the change is that dramatic. For me, it is tolerable and worth the tradeoff. I don't usually drive over bumpy roads so I don't really see any differences until I do hit these roads. The increase in cabin sound is noticeable on the freeway over rough roads, and the increase in car "bumpiness" is exaggerated when going slow over bumps. <p>I have more pictures in the links below, but u might have to open a browser and copy and paste the url.<p><A HREF="http://www.smartxtai.net/main/option,com_zoom/Itemid,54/catid,12" TARGET="_blank">http://www.smartxtai.net/main/...id,12</A>/
