Default New wheels, new pictures

HALLA-FORKING-LULYAH! Wheels finally on – I love ‘em! Now, and only now, can I say that they’re worth the wait.

Considerable props to gs4will for his delivering exactly what he promised – unusual in this day and age, a man of his word. Everything was just as it should be.

They’re 19” Aldstadt Lubecks polished finish, 8.5”, 36 offset on front, 9.5”, 41 offset rear. New Bridgestone S-03 245/35 front, 275/30 rear. They look AWESOME! Pictures follow:

I may be interested in swapping my partially chromed grille for a stock black one - considering it - if anyone local (Dallas area) is interested, pm me and we can discuss.

Garnet,

If I interpretated the pics correct, the lips are polished but not reverse lips. I also noticed the lips are cascaded 2 levels. I've never seen tthis kind of design before

Can you post a close-up one. I definitely want to check them out personally in our next Dallas meet.

LOOKING GOOD!!!!! And yes Manaray, I AM YELLING!!!

My wheels just came in from Super Will as well. He is an asset to CL.

What disk fitments did you get? The rear looks super low. Normal on front? Would bigger brakes clear?

How do you like the offsets? How does the +36 match up with the +41?

Do you think 285s would have fit in the rear?

Now for the most important question so please answer.

Those are the same tires I ordered. I am concerned that the rear is actually a tiny bit smaller diameter. Can you tell this by looking a them? I can't tell by the pic.

Actually great instead of good and sorry for all the questions.

Late.

guys,

glad you all like the Lubecs...

let me address few questions here:

1. this model has 2 disk, the 'normal" disk is = to many other jdm brand's high disk. garnet's +36 "normal" is actually the same fittment recommended by riverside co fo japan for LS430/celsior ucf30. and we all know that the LS430 takes high disk due to its BIG caliper.

2. jacob-on the lubec 19s, the lips are staircasing/normal lip..on the 18s, they are reverse/flat lip....many/most of the HREs are actually "normal lip"
