I recently picked up these Avid AV06 wheels. 18x9 in the fronts and 18x10 in the rears
Ken,Yes, most definitely! Period-correct stuff looks best on our cars, IMO. Great looking Volks. Didn't know they came in 19s or the 10.5-inch width.
^Absolutely 100% correct.I agree with Wreckless in regard to it being better to keep saving up, in order to buy the original version of such an iconic wheel like the TE37. They are so often imitated by the knock off factories in China, but never look quite as good.
When I bought my car almost 15 years ago, like everybody, the first thing I wanted to do was get new wheels on it, so over the first couple of years that I owned it, I went and tried many types of cheap wheels on the car at wheel/tyre stores, but none of them looked "right" and so I told myself that instead of buying some cheap Chinese cast alternatives, I would just keep saving up until I could afford a set of Volks when they popped up, and keep rolling on the stock wheels until then.
About 2 years later, a set of CE28N's popped up in staggered 8.5/9.5 +40 firment, with not a single mark on them. They just needed a week of careful detailing to remove the brake dust that had sadly been left on them, but after that was done, they looked brand new, and I was so happy that I had been patient enough to wait for the right set to appear.
About a year later, I also stumbled across another set of Volk's, this time the TE37 in the same sizes, that I had my track slicks fitted too, so I could swap wheels at the track and not destroy my road tyres.
When it comes to things like this, I honestly believe in the saying that patience is a virture
The great thing about SSR's is that new lips and barrels are available. VRwheels, Threepiece.us, and several others.I’m wearing old school 18” SSR Decolte Evos. (inspired by Steve Jarvis back in the day). I want to keep them. They were special ordered for our offset. But they seem to be very fragile and I need 4 new barrels!
Also looked for Decolte Evolutions for a long time to no avail for my MKIII. @suprajake, to the best of your knowledge, are the Decolte Evos BBK compatible?I’m wearing old school 18” SSR Decolte Evos.
