View Full Version : The 245's new wheels

03-28-2011, 07:05 PM
I bought some new wheels recently and had a chance to mount up one side this last weekend. Yes, I've got to lower it. Yes, I need to wash. Let me know what you guys think.

Here's a pic of the tsw Hock's I have been running and currently have for sale.


Here's the other side of the car with the new wheels.



It's definately going to look better lowered. I need to roll the rear fenders and drop it down.

Looks like an early 140 with no wheel trim.

Yeah, I got them from Jered. ;-)

I'm thinking of going to a Grp A front end. I'd like to find some late model fender in the same paint code though. Then, get some ecodes and an eggcrate grill and I'll be set. I've almost got the interior changed from brown to black.

I like the hocks more.

Yeah. Actually, I'm split on which I like better.

I could never decide on a color for the hocks. I have considered black, silver(stock color), white, or black chrome.

Wat. You just took a step backwards.

I'd like to see what the weight difference is.

what size are those ? they look like 16s but I'm bad at wheel size guessing on bricks for lack of practice. looks like not much tire either.

with the pending Dale adapters I can run high-offset BMW steels which should be somewhat findable. hmn...

Personally I'd pick the hocks and lower it. Then again, its not my car.

i feel like there needs to be more sidewall with the steelie looking things. i dunno. kinda like the first set better. leaving them that color or painting them?

I saw the for sale thread...

I really wanted to see them on this car lowered. Sad you're not keeping them :(

Sorry to hear your getting rid of them, but I second this!
