I thought the day would never come. Its a Christmas miracle!



Now it just needs to warm up, and summer tires need to go on sale.

Those are tungsten? Are they as light colored as they look? That looks fantastic...

A few more tungsten pictures. The installers were commenting on how nice the wheels look and they were impressed by the anti slip bead knurling - I agree!

newold_m, those freshly mounted directional tires look backwards...

I'm wrong, but I now have to research how the RE-11 evacuates water.

Yeah, or the 225/45 Rivals. TR says they're not due back in until Spring-Summer of '15.

FML!

Were they ordered in the Fall or were they recently ordered? Are you saying that there are a few here and there in the system, and if so, how would one go about finding stray tires such as these?

Got a hook up from a friend's Chumpcar team. They had an extra set that they weren't planning to use. They felt the sidewalls were too soft and went back to ZII Star Specs.

Got my Tungstens in today. They look great. Thanks 949Racing!

I'm hoping the Tungsten sell out before my willpower to not buy more wheels fails. Anyone have a pic of them on a Graphite MSM?

After dicking around with fedex and their inability to do as I requested and hold my package at a fedex location since Saturday,I finally got them today! So stoked. Tungsten is beautiful in person.

These wheels fit all the Miatas/MX-5s very well. Timeless design and great color choices! I am however biased on the black on black. Meow!
