    My VIN:    10270

    This took some doing to adapt but all seems to fit well.

    Those tires look like they have a pretty aggressive tread -- how's the ride?

    BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S, 205/45/16 and 245/45/17. I really wanted a pure summer tire but I drive enough into the cold & rainy fall and figured an A/S tire would be more predictable in those conditions. Things get sketchy in the fall on my DD running Potenza S04 and that's with a front engine.

    I've only put about 4 miles on but they seem comparable in ride quality to the Pilot Exaltos they replaced, which were 195/60 and 225/60 on the stock wheels.

    Compared to stock wheels w/ Exalto:
    The front wheels are +10mm and -4lbs
    The rear wheels are +20mm and +1lb

    Rears are actually 1.4lb lighter but the adapter adds 2.4lb

    I'll add about 800miles total traveling to DCS and should have more of an opinion in a week!

    Custom made Aluminum 3 piece. 15x8 front and 15x10 rear (with a 295 tire!) Centers are black anodized.

    Note- suspension is modified to allow these to fit!

    I believe it was posted on the .com site before it was taken down.

    I have a few questions for him/her....

    Thanks.

If memory serves, he was running 205/50/15's on the front, or something similar.

    He was selling those wheels on the .com site, but I can't remember if he ever did. That was years ago so I seriously doubt he still has the car or the wheels, and I doubt you will ever hear from him.
    I can't get over how good this looks. I would *love* to see more photos of it!

    I remember reading about the project to make the factory wheels bigger ages ago and wish it had come to fruition. It's something I'll look into way, way down the road with my car - I'm not a fan of the DMCH interpretation. My car has been slammed to close the wheelarch gaps by the PO and I think it throws the whole body shape off (gives it Countach-esqe flabby flanks behind the door), but bigger, stock-looking wheels like that would close the gap, and make a world of difference to the look of the car, without loosing and of it's character - I really love it.
