Def.

I have a feeling it looks much better than the pictures are showing, though.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

decision time...

Fat fives in gloss black, matte black, or goldy tan? Or a combination thereof? I'm liking the black look on the car, and I think the fives will be spaced a lot better than the a4 wheels.

I don't have a lot of time to work on the wheels any more, so doing them in a solid colour is more appealing than trying to do the inside of the spokes a different colour like I was thinking originally.

Whatcha thinkin?

Sounds good bro. When I come to pick them up I'd like to book some time with you to extract the last lock bolt I wasn't able to get on my own, and use that handy dandy tap so I can get my adapters on :)

Test fitted last night. The car needs to come up at least 1".

*leaves to start wheels for sale thread* lol

I'll see how they work out but I may end up selling them.

Sounds like instead of selling wheels you need purchase some tires!

I assumed the tires were too big and that's why it needs to be raised... or not so much?
