Re: I PUT ON SOME NEW WHEELS AND TIRES

That's not very nice. I the rims are nice, but too small for my taste. On that car at least.

They're not that small. They're 17's (225/45/17). The tires are why I put them on. The Potenzas that came on the stock 18s are crap.

The picture doesn't do them justice, they look better in person.

Re: I PUT ON SOME NEW WHEELS AND TIRES

I guess. I just never cared for anything smaller than 18's on the new GTI's or bigger than 19's. But as it's said many, many times in this forum, "to each his own".

My real reason for putting them on was I wanted to use these wheels for winter tires but the Toyos that are on them are almost new.

So I'm gonna beat the shit out these tires over the summer and then put snows on them (needed in New England).

Then I'm going to get a set of the new Toyo T1-Rs for the 18s for next summer.

It's hard to sell a set of slightly used tires so I'll just get my moneys worth out of them.

I've had Michelin Pilot Sports on my 20th and then put on the T1-Rs. The toyos are by far a better performance tire and cost much less than the Michelins.

At least you like the team where you're from. I know a lot of people here in Houston that HATE the Texans. But now they kicked David Carr to the side, so maybe we'll start doing good.

The Texans should be a whole lot better this year (we'll see what they do come draft day). Reggie Bush would of been a nice addition but it definately wasn't what the team needed to improve on.

It was a good move releasing Carr, he wasn't anything special. I think Schaub was a good pick up. He had one hell of a game against the Pats when Vick was out with herpes or some shit.

BTW - I painted the Pats logo on , it's not a sticker.

Yeah, Texans had some sort of brain fart, not picking up Reggie. But we will see. So the logo isn't permanent then?

Do you not fear that someone who hates that team may find it reason enough to key your car?

I'm not a sports man, but I do notice people seem to get heated and irrational when it comes to supporting teams.

No worries. I wasn't driving around Indy with it.

Now if it was a Red Sox logo during a Sox/Yankees series THEN I'd be a bit worried but there aren't too many Colts fans around Boston.

I have been known to spit on a few cars with any type of Yankees apparell on it, but nothing that would permanantly damage their car. And yes spitting on a car is childish.

Keying a car is even more childish.

Never mess with a man's vehicle or woman.

I couldn't of said it better myself. Yankee fans must prefer cars that cost 3-4 times as much with diminshed performance when it counts the most

You're right, it's not a sin to like the Yankees, it's an incurable genetic disorder.

The Sox win through grit, heart and determination. The Yankees win through $$$.
