damn you are lucky. You don't have to get your wheels changed and balanced 2 times a year and worry about corrosion from salted roads. And you don't need to buy 2 sets of tyres.

Please excuse my kinda ****ty pictures. Also, the last picture is taken about ten minutes before I removed the head light-wipers. They are now burned to ashes and then turned into mud with me adding my piss as fluid :uh:

I like the wheels you got.

Thanks. Some people love them and some people hate them. They're known around here as "The uglies". The 17" Canopus S80 wheels. I think they look awesome.

244 needs more Siriuseses and more low. 745 needs a grille and some ugly 15s (Rigels, even).
