New 18" Rims and tires

I took a quick shot of My 6 with its new rims. I'll get better shots later. The rims came with Red center caps which i did not like, so I just painted them black for now. I am working on some new caps. Went from 215/55/17 to 245/45/18. No rubbing yet but may have to roll eventually.

Looks really good bro! It ties in to your cars color theme

I don't think you'd have to roll your fenders though man...

Congrats PBNJ!

Several companies have a similar design. Tenzo meister, Mod Tech, & others. I think the Red center cap they shipped with it really makes it look like the LM

a lot of companies borrow the styling because LM's are... well expensive and very popular.

Just like there are a ton of different BBS RS's knock offs and Volk TE37 knock offs. It is all to cash in on the popular styling, well under cutting the originals with "cheaper" materials. Often Cast, instead of the original unit that was forge. The fake rivets are a dead give away when it is a knock off. They are trying to replicate the 2-3piece look, w/o the added expense.
