My turn for new wheels :)

Got a set of 18's with conti sport contact 2's on them.. Really filled out the wheel wells and made the car much stickier. I'm not much for the 'bling' look, so these fit my tastes!

Very nice! Are those Moda rims?

I just updated mine as well. BBS RS-GT's with the Diamond Black finish

Is the circumference of an 18 inch tire the same as a 17? Or, is the "filling out my wheel wells" comment due to their greater width over the stock 17's?

the tire combo is about 1/2 inch taller, but the width is almost 4 inches wider.. the tires now come closer to the edge of the fender and it looks almost identical to the stance of an 06 box.. Thing takes corners on a rail now too !
