The wheels are great, Dave.
But I dont like the polished finish.
I think I will put a clear over them with a dulling agent.
Just like the factory finish on my stock fuchs.

Still like the all black.
However ,the thread has spoken.

They do look a bit too shiny.

It's your car. At the end of the day it goes in your garage and you admire it. Go with what you want and screw the rest. I'm running Venetian blue rims (polished) on a Arena read car. I could care less what people around me think of the color combo - I happen to like it . The rims are not mine to repaint and they serve a utilitarian purpose.

I know, I just completed the circle on this and beat a dead horse.

Good for you, Jeff. I think my plant has seen better days. It's just not growing big anymore and I forgot to replace it earlier in the season.

Max, the next time your neighbor starts knocking boots just start grunting off time and see if you can mess them up.

Good morning folks.

Vas, I have my little bitty 7 & 8 inch wide x 15 inch Fuchs in the back of my El Camino right now. They sure look tiny compared to your monster Fuchs. My new tires get mounted today. The good news about my little tires is they were just $380 for the set of 4 delivered to my door.

They will work fine for getting me to Utah and some home brew beer.

Mine is very much like that. My wife has started counting days to retirement. This fall we'll break into 3-digits.

nobody said you need to get hammered. in fact, that would not be good. what i said was you don't need six of them. probably two, given your size and drinking experience. it is good beer, unoffensive, slightly sweet and delicious. great for easing into beer.
