The black wheels would be the route I'd take.
You're starting to sound like an old guy ..... lol 👴I would take the route that does not beat you up and instill a fear of potholes.
I also looks like your 205s are having a hard time filling those 8" rims.
Yikes! Are those the bronze painted Trofeos, or have they been painted yellow? I mean just because trofeo is Italian for trophy doesn’t mean they have to be as shiny as an Oscar statue. 😂Visually I thought I'd prefer the murdered-out look of the Advanti's. But the Sparcos have grown on me. I wouldn't have picked the color, but it works.
... Like pulling a sock over a watermelon...
If you're putting it on all the way over the watermelons too you may have been doing it wrong?
Reminds me of what it was like trying to put on a condom.
Great advice all around. I hadn't thought about the stretched sidewall and tightness.Yeah, stretching the sidewall that far over is going to give you a very rough ride. I'm on 17x7.5's and the 205's they came with were a bit too narrow. 215/225 stagger works better and smooths it out a lot. Also helps to prevent rash if you accidentally graze a curb.
I'll have to dig out the paperwork to see if I have a paint description for the Trofeos. The paint quality is excellent, I'm sure they came bright and yellow like that from the factory. The PO hated that yellow and bought the black Advents.Yikes! Are those the bronze painted Trofeos, or have they been painted yellow?
