Tires are PA2s:
255/40/18; 25.75lbs

The rear offset is off by 7mm. I think that'll be fine. If I don't like that, I'll use a 10mm spacer, but I really don't think that'll be an issue with a winter setup. I'll put them on this weekend and post some pics.

Rims do look Great. Is the lip actually polished? If so what will you put on the lip to prevent the salt from destroying the nice polished look. Here in Germany they put a ton of salt out. That was the main reason I went with the Tire Rack Rims and their good service.
