New Shoes

After nearly 3 months of waiting my new wheels arrived last week


I got Advan RZs
Front
18x8 et45
with 225/40/18 Advan AD08 tyres

Rear
18x9 et 50
with 255/35/18 Advan AD08 tyres

I'm loving the look of them and they are about 3.5kgs lighter per corner than my old wheels! Thread is worthless without pics (even if they are just my shitty iphone pics)so...

Freshly bolted on



and then immediately to the race track where I dropped 2 seconds off my long track time and half a second off my short track time. Big improvement.




Then after a wash and a few coats of wheel sealant. The finish on them is really deep and glossy, looks awesome when clean.
