Couple of follow up comments on the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11... I can't say enough about these tires. They have transformed the car IMO. The car feels lighter and more responsive (it isn't, obviously, but it REALLY feels like it). Steering feel and sensitivity is much improved and traction is better too. They are a little harder over bumps than the Pilot Super Sports but not by much. I really do love the PSS but the RE-11 are a definite step up in feel and responsiveness. I expect the AD-08 would be similar or better for feel but maybe with a bit more harshness.

And... one more picture. This was taken on my Blackberry when I was leaving a home improvment store this AM... something about the car and wheels just struck me. I wish I could have captured it better than was possible on the BB (not to mention that I felt like a tool standing in the parking lot taking a photo of my car so I rushed it a bit). The more time I spend with the VS8.2 on the car, the more I am really appreciating these wheels.

Car looks outstanding gthal.

quick question, for the morr vs8.2, does the tire installer need to mount the tires with the face facing down (ie reverse mount)?

Thanks and I believe so... I had the wheels shipped directly to the tire shop. I went over to inspect them before mounting. The guy at the counter made a comment that they were reverse mounted.

Thanks Andy. I'm very happy with the VS8.2 and like them more and more the longer they are on the car.

Took this picture today with my BB when leaving the office. Thought it showed off the stance and concavity of the VS8.2 well.

I am really digging those wheels, gthal. In fact, I think I have found my new favorite rims.

I love mine! They are MUCH lighter than the 359M wheels. I totally felt a difference when I changed. The brushed finish is gorgeous and Im really happy with mine. I just wish they had one more spoke to make them more "mesh" looking. From a distance, they look like 7 spoke wheels. Thats just my opinion though.
