Those are pretty sweet, although I did like the other ones a WHOLE lot!

The other ones were nice, and actually looked bigger then these.  They are still the same size, but since the spokes dont go to the very edge of the wheel, these look smaller.

They do ride a whole lot smoother then the other wheels though.  Must be the tire design.

I wish.  Ive just decided to keep the car for a while longer.  Fix some of the problematic things, and then sell private party so I can get a few extra bills out of it then getting trade in.

What tires?  What were your previous tires?

Previous - 18x8 Axis Speed 6 40mm et with 225/40 Yokohama AVS ES100 tires.

Current - 18x8 Mille Miglia MM2's 35mm et 225/40 Continental ContiExtreamContact all season tires.

Tire now really arent all that bad for an all season tire.  Handles well, and rides pretty smooth compared to the Yoko's.

Oh, the Contis will definitely be smoother than the Yokes.  I've have both.  The sidewall on the Yoke is very stiff.  Pure summer tire at the expense of comfort.  The sidewall on the Conti is softer, plus you've got a little tread squirm on your new tires vs. none on the worn out Yokes.
BTW, love the wheels.

Thanks Pat.  Im really pleased so far.  Once I get back from Florida, Im going to have the GoodYears installed on these wheels.  Should really improve the response a little more.

Thanks Boris.  Sorry for the delay, sent a reply back to you.
