MR E92 w/Klassen K8.2

After much drama, I finally got my wheels and tires mounted. Specs are:

Wheels--20x9F, 20x10.5R Klassen K8.2 (Matte Black w/Chrome lips)
Tires: 255/30/20F, 295/25/20R Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta
Springs: Eibach

Hopefully, I'll have better pics soon.











I must say that Frank and Josh at Klassen are the best. There were some issues in completing my order, but I think the true measure of a company is how it deals with problems rather than whether or not it maintains perfection. Frank and Josh were very attentive and helpful throughout the process, and even spent quite a bit of time after the wheels were delivered attempting to coach my first tire installer through installation (for some reason, my first installer could not get the front tires mounted --I eventually took the wheels and tires to another shop which got them mounted with no issues). Bottom line--the guys at Klassen care about their product and their customers. Also, I'd like to give a big "thanks" to Peter @ Wheel Experts, who was the vendor for my order - Peter was great, as always.

The wheels look amazing on your car. Great choice. Red with CF roof and black wheels is an insane look. Love it!

Thanks, guys! I'm really happy with the purchase. The attention to detail and quality of construction in the wheels is nothing short of amazing.

Well, I'd be glad to trade you my 8.2s for the SC! j/k IMO, you have the sickest car here, so I think you're doing just fine without the Klassens.

Looks great. Think it will look even better with the lip all blacked out too.

I agree. They look good, but I'm not a fan of the polished lip.

Like the overall balance of the car.
Where did you get your springs installed?
I have a set of eibachs in my garage waiting to get installed.
Still looking around for a reasonable installer in NoVa.

To each his own! I have this debate all the time with a friend who prefers blackouts--the blackout look generally doesn't appeal to me--I want contrast between the tire and wheel. The lips are actually chrome (which I would never do on the face of a wheel) instead of polished b/c I have grown tired of maintaining polished lips.

I love the Eibachs--they're perfect for me. Virtually no sacrifice in terms of ride quality with the springs alone (adding the 20" wheels/tires is a different story). The drop looks clean and I don't have to change my driving style regarding speed bumps, driveways, etc.

Thanks--I had the springs installed at PTuning in Manassas. They're good guys and have a great facility, but I'm not sure the price was the best you can get. You may also want to check out NGP Racing in Lorton (who installed the wheels and tires)--they do a lot of VW/Audi work and are good guys as well.
