Quick Pic of my new shoes!

Thanks to Duncan at VividRacing - great service at a great price! Decided to go with a wheel that I can use for both track and street. So I went with the Volk TE37s in Matte Black. I'm thinking of calling her Kit!

Nice wheels Barry. Those are TE37s are extremely lighweight. The flat black finished matches the car very well.

I don't know the % but the brand is Llumar and I'm not having any CA problems. I used this brand on my last car and had no problems.

I just realized your car is Jerez. I've been contemplating how the blue in the Jerez will match with a black wheel. It's hard to tell in the pics, but what do you think about it in person? Especially in the sun, when the blue is really poppin?

Hi Leh - yes I went with teh 9.5" wheel in the front so I've got the same wheels you did. The tires are 255/35 f and 285/30 rear. I wanted a 265/30 front but Nitto hasn't released that size in the Invo yet (or so I was told) and I just couldn't bring myself to pony up the $ for the PS2s.... I do get a little rub at full lock when turning left. It appears there is some sort of bubble in the fender liner just in front of the passenger door that the tire will hit at full lock. You probably don't have the same issue since your tires are a little shorter in height right?

Thanks!
BC
