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.

Thanks for looking!

Tom

Its not my style, but its your car and you can do whatever you want. The next step you should take is to lower your car. Then those wheels will fit the car a little better.

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.

Thanks
Tom

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.

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.

Thanks
Tom
