I've always liked the look of that particular wheel as seen on the S1's and on Dahlbacks Sport Quattro, but I seriously doubt I would ever buy them, I just joke about it. I don't think I'd ever spend the cost of 1 of those plus shipping on a set of wheels!

I'd guess that thats exactly the case, because these 235's would only need a 5mm spacer to fit. The bulk of the sidewall didn't even rub, it was the curb guard section that touched.
