Some of you may know my e28 who sports a set of 14x6 now cream colored basketweaves, wrapped in tons of tire.

This is no longer the case.

The wheels I picked up from my friend in Lynchburg. They were wrapped in 215/60's which was a little too much meat to handle. My good friends from NoVa, Matt, Max, Carter, and Kirk met up with me yesterday and helped me dismount the old tires and mount and balance the new ones.

I have to say, I've met nice guys in the car world, but none that are willing to go out of their way to help me out like this. To all the NoVa guys and girls, thanks so much for hanging out, helping me out and making me feel welcome. I don't think I would have actually pulled through on wheels and gotten the tires and all I needed to get this together without you guys.

Of course, she isn't done. I plan to pick up some new tires soon to get some stretch going, as well as pick up some spacers. Hopefully once I've gotten the stretch, I'll be able to run 25mm all around.

Dude, this is so funny. On my drive home from work an hour ago I was thinking about your car and the new wheels you bought and was disappointed because I wouldn't be able to see the progress since I got rid of my facebook. I prayed to the gods that you'd make a thread here showing off the new rimz and whaddyaknow.

The wheels look great on there, should look even better with stretch and spacers. :D

I think tires are going to take a little while to find, but I'm going to get spacers on hopefully within two weeks. Just sold my camera, so now I need to get in contact with Omegatech, the local machine shop and garage to get some 25mm and 15mm 5x120's made.

New wheels look better than the old ones for sure.
The front end seems a bit empty, haven't thought about a bumper?

Euro turns and bumpers are on the list. And I just got my euro plate, so that will be mounted soon.
