Pretty heavy but for 19s they are about 25 lbs


In Gunmetal that may be the wheels I go for, that is when I can get wheels. Hoping spring time...

Good find though.

Those rims and Falkens for around $1400.00....

^^^I met that guy over the summer at the Eurowerks show. Cool guy - he's from the Chicago area. You wouldn't believe the amount of work he had to do to those fenders to get that wheel setup to fit. On his way to the show, one of the wheels (driver's rear IIRC) came into contact with the fender on a rough road. Not pretty. probably took a fair amount of bodywork to repair it.

That is some serious negative camber.

I must be getting old. That blue car isn't exciting me all that much. I have driven car with that much low, and it's not nearly as fun when you have to watch the road so closely for possible obstacles. I was constantly worried about my oil pan instead of having fun. Look cool, even with all that camber, I just would rather not have to worry about it.

Only posted for the rims fella's....not the stance....

Wow, I actually thought that wheel was photochopped onto that car...

I like those wheels. Methinks would look sick in Hypersilver or light gunmetal.

Funny thing about this hella flush craze with the neg camber and the stretched wheels. YOU ARE RIDING ON YOUR SIDWAll MORONS!!!! I saw an STI wagon with those same white wheels and camber in SLC a week ago, what a waste...

Not really a performance car move if you ask me. More like a Civic move, all looks no go.

They def dont dhu eeet for tire longevity. Its like puttin a sticker or bra on your car.

I got some negative camber on my lowered bug, but it's not a performance car. It looks sweet, and I love me some low, but my ZHP was build to drive and I refuse to compromise that for looks when a set of H&R Sports make it look hot and it still corners like a race car.

But to each their own. I respect the owner and understand that its their car to do as they please and getting extreme aggressive stance takes skill. Just because it's not a choice I would make doesn't mean it's not badass.

Plus, rear tires for the bug are like $20 a pop, so if you ride on the sidewall so f'ing what. :rofl

12-30-2010, 02:50 PM
I think on the right car....negative camber is teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeets.

12-30-2010, 02:54 PM
a '60 ragtop vw type 1 is definitely the right car.
And mine isn't even that extreme. The front will be lower this spring, but the rear is where I want it. Got have enough air flowing underneath to cool the motor...

For the bug or looks I get, but if you have an STI or anything really drive worthy it should drive like a sporty, not a 325 with a rice kit on it and 20's. IMO at least.

12-30-2010, 03:37 PM
I agree wholeheartedly

I found these on their site. I need these!!!! I hope my bonus is bigger than I think.....

Those are a great deal. I'd opt for the tire packages if you can.

Yeah, I thought about trying out the Invos since I heard a couple people say they were good on a DD. I hope, I hope. We will see what the wife says.
