Default After 4+ months, finally pics of my 18" Volks. They were worth the wait!

As some may know, I have waited a long time for my wheels.

Volk Racing TE37:

18x8.5, 5x120 (+35 Mercury Silver) 17.5 lbs
18x9.5, 5x120 (+22 Mercury Silver) 18.0 lbs

Pilot Sports:

255/40 - 18 25lbs
285/35 - 18 28lbs

My OEM 18's w/stock Conti's (after 17k miles) were 49 lbs & 51 lbs repectively. This is about 5 lbs per corner front and 6lbs per corner rear less than my OEM set up. Keep in mind I have increased my tire with front and rear 30mm each.

I plan on staying at stock ride height, but will be contacting Ian for top adjustable Koni Yellows.

Pics, enjoy

Nice wheels. I guess I'm just used to seeing the 19's on our cars, so they look a bit small, but I'm sure that can be remedied with a drop.

Looks awesome! You didn't mention it, so I'll assume your running those offsets with no spacers?

Nice shoes; One of my favorite lightweight wheels. Though you mention you want to keep stock height, I think it'd look much better with a mild lowering.
