    A few people asked that I post a few picks of my wheels.
    My picture taking skills are lacking to say the least.
    The wheels are TSW Nurburgring (matte bronze, 18x8.5+45) with Nitto Neogen Tires.
    i also posted a hood shot so you guys didn't think my car was a swirly mess.
    Thanks for looking.

    black mica... and yes, there is a ton of "mica". lol

    It has a bronzish tint in the sun.

    The pictures really make the car look strange. I like the way it look way better in person.



    i traded this for it! i had an evoIX, and when I bought the X was disappointed.

    That's funny I set out looking for an EVO mr or an STI ( my 2 favorite cars) and eneded up with a Mazda speed6 because of comfort. I love the speed3 too. I find certain products mute the mica or metallic.

    The products I found that mute are DG AW , DG105 , JW prime,AJ and CJ, vics red( chaos is way better)
    There were a few more that I can't remember. For Me DGAW was the worst. Don't get me wrong DG are great products I had them all.

    I had a black SVT focus before my Speed6. If I knew aboutPrima Amigo,HYdro, RMG & CMW I might have kept it longer.

    Nither cars are very comfortable, I drive a suburban 99% of the time partially for that reason. The Sti lives in the garage.

    how true!. the evoX was too big for me. i was spoiled by my IX.

    i like flake, but these cars (mazda?) have so much flake, i don't mind a little muting.

    yes...rotary forged. they are about 19-20lbs each. about 5 lbs less than my stockers and an inch wider. does your mustang.

    yes, the pictures don't look it but it is about 1.3f and 1.5 rear. they are h&r springs. I'd like it to be a bit lower, but i don't want to worry about scraping.

    your mazda 3 looks great. btw. the grass is always greener on the other side. lol

    those wheels look great. im thinkin they might look pretty damn good on my GTI....mind if i ask how much they ran you?

    First, Thank you.

    around 1600 from discount tire direct (w/ tires).

    they often offer free mounting and balancing, but they didn't have tpms sensors, so i had to have them mounted and balanced locally for around $200.00.

    if you don't get them (wherever you but them from) to mount and balance them, make sure the shop who mounts them has a hunter touchless machine.

    they also have other colors, but my metallic has a bronze tint in the sun.

    check out the TSW "donnington" also if u like the style of my wheels.

    TSW really does make a lot of nice wheels, the styles are current and are well made.

    great thanks. forgot to ask, what model are they specifically? im loving how the bronze wheel looks with the black car.
  20. rfinkle2

    TSW "nurburgring".
    btw, if u are a member of any vw sites, they can help u with fitment. imo, the suggested sizes and fitments on the online wheel sites are very conservative as far as size and offset.
    not that i don't want to help, i just don't know too much about vw's.
