Rocky, I agree, some of the wheels people put on their cars are bloody
awful...especially those damn spinners, but if people get enjoyment
out of them, then more power to them. With regards to the various
comments regarding low profile tires and large rims, then let me put
my 2 cents in.. I used to have the 10 spoke 16inch 'sport' wheels on
the old 2000 A4 avant and I quite liked the look of them. I now have
the 18inch S-line wheels on the 2006 A4 Avant....the performance
difference in handling and cornering is quite staggering...I don't buy
the argument that there is no difference in track times between the
two sets on the same car...take a look at the touring car
championships....you don't see 15 inch rims with large profile tires
on those suckers...

However, I will agree with you Rocky when it comes to the damn cost of
replacing those low profile tires!!

Regards to all,
