2008 M-coupe

My new street wheels finally came in. Avant Guard M5/6 replicas in 19x9 et35 in front with 245/35 in front, and 19x10 in the rear with 275/30 et25. Tires are Micheline Pilot Super Sports. I love the look and think they fit the car well. They are not super light (25lbs) so these won't be my primary track set. Sticking to 18s for that...

Thanks to Pyspeed for the hookup and awesome service!







Now, time for some coil overs....

Thanks everyone! I went on a long enthusiastic drive last night. It was. 32-degrees with damp but not wet streets. I must say, PSS's are amazing! They didn't feel to hard in the cold!

KEY OBSERVATION: on crappy roads including rutted freeways and worn B roads, I actually experience no decreased ride comfort or adverse effects in road noise or steering road texture transfer. This is a surprise and likely due to the superior tires compared to OEM Contis (which I think are great too btw!).

The car gets looks like it's an exotic now. The anthracite accent paint almost matches the space grey color of my car perfectly. Consider me smitten!

Some more pics:
