I got my Nurburgrings from Discount Tire Direct also. Friendly people and great customer service.

I might be selling mine (17x8, Matte Gunmetal), however, fairly soon. I'd like to use the money toward a set of 17" OZ Alleggeritas.

Yes, I did find them for this price, but I see SwiftGTI got them for a better deal from Discount Tire

1)I just checked and Discount Tire doesn't sell any 18x8 TSW Nurburgring's in Bronze ( at least not in my area). Anyone know of a reputable wheel shop to get them shipped from?

2) Did anyone try the 18x8.5? They come in a ET35 and I was wondering if that would cause a lot of problems.

Thanks

I actually did a search a few minutes ago on 8.5s, but looks like ET is close to 32 (discount tire source). It will rub probably if you go low. I'll stick w/ 8" + 10mm spacers if have more room to go.

Post up a pic if you've got one -- I'd like to see what the Nurburgrings look like in that color and size. Also free advertising when/if you sell

Looks like discount tire isnt selling the bronze Nurburgrings anymore unless you have to call and ask cause I'm not seeing it on there inventory online. Did everyone go through discount tire for the bronze?

Hopefully this weekend and next week I'll be able to get pictures of the wheels. I want to get them dismounted from the tires beforehand, though.
