Price just dropped to $150 ...

But seriously doh, before I do anything .. I still haven't confirmed that the stock +45 17x7.5 wheel will clear the BBK. If I have some time tonight, I will put the spare on and see what's what

If the 6 pot calipers from the Cayenne fit the stockers, I'm guessing yours will do just fine...

Even if they dont fit. just add 10mm spacer and they will fit.

First mod

Boost gauge installed, love how it matches the interior lightning

Between 3-5k peak boost builds to 16-18 PSI.

5-7k boost stays steady at around 15psi and eventually drops to 12psi.

But see, I already have wheels (with brand new tires) that don't look half bad, I really don't need another set sitting in the garage until I spend $600 on tires .

I know you guys the OEM wheels, but money could be much better spend on other things like fixing the rear suspension groan, the headliner, getting tintz, upgrading exhaust, etc.

I'm sorry guys, it's not going to happen If y'all gonna kill me, just do it

Man, just hang the wheels on the wall of your garage. I have a set of GS-R "blades" hanging on my wall. I doubt I'll ever own another 4 bolt Honda again, but hey, it's automotive wall art!

You guys are actually giving me ideas ... I already have 3 pairs of different wheels: 2 x AP1 rears, 2 x Wedsport SA90s, and 2 x 5Zigen. Good wall art potential right thur!

my mind can't understand how you won't spend a buck fiddy to give yourself the OPTION to take those fuckin horrendous wheels off your car.
Especially since that car is desirable...think about resale value when the next person is like, oh i wanted to buy your s4, do you have the stocks...please say yes...PLEASE>
Never mind, pass...


for a hundred and fifty bucks. you probably spend more than that in a month on booze.

buy them...sell yours. then they're free. ya big dummy.

and you already said "wheels i dont mind" which means you also hate them, you just aren't pressed to have the stocks instead becuase you dont LOVE them either.

so if you are pretty equally blah about both...please let all of us with really good taste help you decide to put the blah wheels we KNOW look better on the car that BELONG on the car


ON THE CAR.

Dude...if we were talking a grand, I wouldn't even mention it...then your'e in $1600 for some wheels you don't care about...i would understand that. but a 150?!?! that's a CRAZY deal and you already know if you tell that guy you're coming with $120 cash tonight, he'll give them to you.

Tyler is more like a LV guy. We will be cutting up the freaking bag to get the material.

Actually one guy is currently looking for an used LV bag.... so I can make a shifter boot for him with it.
