Default Strasse Forged S8 Wheels on MM IS-F

Well everyone, I finally made the plunge and purchased a set of wheels and tires for the car. I have to say, I absolutely love the way they look.

I want to say thank you to Rob and all the guys over at Strasse Forged. They did an amazing job on the wheels and helped me throughout the entire process. They have been nothing but great to me and the customer service has been extremely impressive. They've been calling to make sure I'm happy and that everything is living up to my expectations (and it is).

The build quality, finish and chrome quality are stunning and second-to-none. I've been in the market for wheels for quite some time and I am more than happy with the company and wheels I chose to go with. The wheels are absolutely perfect for the car

I can't say enough about how happy I am about dealing with Strasse Forged, Rob and the quality of the wheels

Here are a few of the pics and complete specs:

Wheels:
Strasse Forged S8
Brushed Aluminum Centers with High Polished Lips
20x9 Front 1.5" Lip
20x10.5 Rear 2.5" Lip

Tires:
Nitto Invo
Front: 245/30/20
Rear: 285/25/20

Photos were taken by local photographer Vu Nguyen

Thanks everyone! I was looking for something that wasn't too extreme and added to the classiness of the F.
