You need spacers. Ipd sells 25 mm which I use for my Propus C's. I'm lowered as well and using 225/50/17. Only at full lock will I get very little rub.

A little bit of tuck with 25 mm in the rear but easier set up and won't have to roll fenders.

Default What will they fit?

Don't know if they will fit any of my Volvos but for $600 with new tires I couldn't pass this up.

Yes, I have a set on my car at the moment. That's a great price for them too

Subscribed because im not super crazy about my Virgos and i'm missing one anyways. But maybe it will look better once its lowered a bit more?

Appreciate the ideas!

I want to do a black/silver scheme on the Virgos and put them on the wagon.

For what she paid, I know what she has. Plus the tires that they will be wrapped in.

They are, indeed, legit Rays wheels. Just Gram Lights instead of Volks, but they're still awesome... I'm saving the TE37s for my 30th birthday present to myself.

Yep. They're getting their R1R wrapping on Monday.

Neither can I! If I didn't have a slight aversion to running R1Rs when it's cold and wet, I'd be putting the wheels on, Monday afternoon. Sadly, it'll be next Thursday or so, before they're actually on the car.

Looking for a set of OG Riken mesh or Enkei92s in gold to move my Michelin hockey pucks onto, so I can get okay wear/wet performance for daily use.
