Decided to put the BBS RKII on the Passat
« on: April 17, 2006, 06:35:53 PM »
Since the tax man took a chunk out of gragravar, he wont be buying my BBS RKII, so I decided just to put them on my Passat wagon.  Its time to take the winter tires off it, so this was as good of time as any to decide.

My Goodyear GS-D3's were all worn out, so I just ordered a set of Kumho Ecsta SPT 235/40R-18 95Y XL B from discount tire.  Anyone used these tires yet?  They were the cheapest summer performance tires in this size.

I am still really bummed about not getting those.  They will look great on the passat though.  

Also, a former work colleauge of mine ran those tires on his BMW 528 and loved them.

edit:

for all those that weren't aware, the reason I am bummed is that I LOVE this look.  it was what I was going for:

I love my RK's which I just took off since they are my winter set, they are only 17" though.
RK's don't come in 18's for our bolt spacing, only the RKII which is so much more expensive.

I'm curious on how how much you were selling them for?

I was asking $2000, but gragravar threatened to remove limbs, so I went down to $1700 which is $1000 less then I paid for them.

I just called discount to cancel my order on the Kuhmo's and has them change the order to the Goodyear GS-D3.  I liked that the tire way to much.
