I just finished mounting my new Monet Nude wheels and Yokohama Avid H4S. I put several coats of wheel wax on them. I created an album in the galery named,
snakeman56 and uploaded several pictures. You will also see the rear end of my toy a 1980 L-82 Corvette. Let me know what you think of the rims!! They just look awsome on the car. They are 18"X8 I had 17" until today. I love chrome Rims.

I know what you mean, we all have different taste. I did alot of looking and these rims after mounting them, just look awsome. I wanted something different.
Thanks for your opinion. I am looking at doing what you said about lowering the car.

Ok, but which ones are those? I only ask cause I'm trying to find some to replace my old bent 16" rims on bald tires. If you got pics, I'd like to see them.
I am attaching a picture of the car with the original 17" rims.
Ok I can see why you switched. As you live in Colorado, assuming it snows where you drive and by the last pic, was it a good idea to get those rims? Unless you have a second snow vehicle or another set of wheels for snow travel.

I plan on keeping the original rims and get new snow tires, to switch them when I need to. I live near Denver and yes it snows but it's not that bad. I have all season tires on the new rims and the tires have been sniped for better traction. Yes we have another snow car, but I like my 325XI it handles alot better than most cars I have driven in the snow.
