I havenít taken any real pictures yet - just mounted and figured out why the car wasnít driving properly today.

I went with 18x8.5 et35 squared. Was tempted to do a little reverse stagger but decided it wasnít worth the hassle. There is so much clearance for the calipers between spokes and barrels that didnít exist before. I am very happy.

They weigh 19 lbs each. I forgot to weigh one with the tire mounted. The VMRs were a little heavier - I think 23lbs but I donít quite remember anymore. But I lost enough weight that it feels obvious.

The spoke design is awesome - totally hollowed out. The little details are impressive also - all the logos and wordings are machined into the face, not just painted. The molding on the barrel has little details that OEM cast wheels donít have - all very cool. Billet center caps for now and I also have some branded Rays caps coming but there back ordered for a few weeks.

Installed a complete stock low mileage ED30 engine (K04) and gearbox with ECU Stage 2+ and DSG Stage 2+ too. At least I can drive the car for now.

In parallel working on forging CDL engine and preparing for the Quattro too. Donít know when I will finish but hopefully soon!
