To much time spent on VWvortex...or bimmerforums eh...prolly the vortex..

I want to see these on an NA...I'm torn between the need of 15x8...and the lust for 15x9s...

I have been running 225/50 15's on my rear 15x8 Panasports for years, but I might look at 225/45's next time I need tires.

I've got 225/45/15 RS2s on the 15x9 now. I rolled the fender lips but didn't pull. I get zero rub. Did you see Emilio's post over on m.net? He says the 225/45/15 R1R is actually closer to a 245

Maybe later this week, I've got some other crap to figure out. And the car is covered in bird crap, bug guts, and brake dust.

LOL well it was one of those moments where you have an idea and a picture of it on your mind but when its done...you're like "ummm.....thats not what i pictured" lol

then i was gonna paint them gold (where the green is) but then emmi (cr.net) said "they look like spun mesh wheels" got me thinking twice...so ima just go all gold with no polished lip..like this
