hahaha, I know it fits my car really well. but pretty damn spendy I must say :p
And I would def get a bigger size. 18x9 or 18x9.5, with some good tire fitment. the ones I test fitted are pretty baby small, but surprisingly look good despite the wheel gap. I'm picky :/

itohead: Those rims are pretty sweet. I like the complex spoke design. And it's way different from anyone else's I have seen on here.

VWVortex.com - --- WAGEN-WHEELS.COM --- WW1 LM reps 17x8 18x8.5 18x9.5

I would offer those as a solution to your predicament, BUT, I desperately want the 18x8.5 so don't you get them.

I take it you don't see any snow there. I like the look, but you'd be bustin' oil pans and fenders on ice bergs around here come winter. I'm gonna leave mine stock for this very reason...

So I'm a little stoked lol. nothing amazing, just looks better I think. My good friend is letting me test fit his BBS LM's soon so...we'll see what happens!

Cool so far man! I like those thick mesh looking wheels. Remind me of the older grand cherokee wheel design.

lol, Vancouver, Wa is like 10min away from Portland. So we get more rain than anything. And I never really take my car out to wilderness trips often, for the most part its fine. and my oilpan has pretty good clearance. its my cat that hits everything lol, but only the guard is banged up a little.

I made them, used a heat gun, took out the baby star screws...then pryed the amber out...I honestly wouldn't recommend it. The heat kinda ruined an burnt a teeny portion of the corner lens, that and I've cracked both sides. I'm eventually going to buy some jdm clear corners so I don't have to worry cracked lens or anything.

Well, thus far an update on things, I debadged the rear...didn't realize there were 2 holes, and on top of that, Have paint coming off and some bad ghost lines. doing a buff an wax soon, but overall I am going to fill the holes, then respray my hatch. I might even shave the rear keyhole on my hatch...we'll see what happens.

Wheels, I'm still debating. But the rotiform blq's are still the #1 choice, I'm just prepping things on my car before I make the purchase. And I'm just deciding between 2 tire fitments.

Finally, have a color matched sf5 grill coming in soon :)

And last but not least, I have a pretty big project coming up soon! But it will be awhile before it happens, I have to get other things with my car in order. but can someone say air-ride?
