Default Refinished Multi-X's

I have always been a fan of Multi-X's and when it came time to get new tires for my '87 244 I decided to bite the bullet and intensify my search. Found a junkyard set and after mulling it about a bit decided to paint the centers gold and polish the lips. Turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.

after


On my 285K mile, N/A, never-washed, daily-driver,

Nice. Here are mine:





One was cracked, so I welded it and turned down the weld bead on the brake lathe.

225/45.

I would have loved to go lower profile and lower it, but (bad thing to say on a volvo enthusiast site) the Volvos are my practical cars, they are the ones that get me where I'm going when it's ****ty out, or the the others are broken.

and I won't run them without the centercaps... One of the good things about the gold is it changes shades in different amounts of sun. It can be really dark or very light.

Incredible!

I want to paint my Scoroius that way, but it's hard because there's not a definite line where the spokes and lip separate.

The only thing I don't like about Multi-X is when I think about cleaning them! That's why I try to keep the number of spokes on my rims to something I can count on my hands...

But otherwise good job! Looks nice, I'm impressed.
