Cool New Shoes.... 18"

Hit a pothole last week so was forced to buy a set of wheels for the car.... Dealership was too much.

Hope you like.
They are starting to grow on me

Oh and the Ski/Bike rack come on the car when not in use.....

Looking good.. The silver and black goes with your car great. Good call by not going to 19's and leaving yourself with no rubber. Do you notice any increase in ride harshness or is it about the same?

The ride is actually better.
The OEM Conti's 17's are a little soft so i was constantly bottoming out on the sidewalls. The 18" contis' are a little firmier so the tire take most of the bumps before it collaspses the sidewalls.
Plus they handle so much better snow and all

Not a hard sell considering i cracked 2 rims and blew out two tire. i could have gottan a repaired wheel for half of the cost the dealer was charging, but we had a bad experience with one before. So it was actually cheaper (and safer) to get a complete after market set.

-Thanks to all on the compliments, makes me feel better about my choice
