Default Vossen Photoshoot: a weakstyles.com production (New VVS-085's)

Now I know your thinking, D.Jobin, these are the same damn rims you had before! Well they're not...

These are the new Vossen VVS-085's and yours truly is the first IS in the WORLD to have these!

Special shout to Vossen Wheels of course, and my main man Mister And3rson for the amazing photography. If anyone is interested in a photo shoot you can contact him at any of the websites below.

Yea its hard to tell but the spoke design and rivet pattern are completely different then the 078's. The lips are 4x thicker on these too.

Heres a side by side comparo:

085's


078's

I like how minor details can change the overall look. I like the new wheels better. What, no models in this photo shoot. Hahaha!

The new wheels aren't different enough to justify the added expense of changing but we car guys often do things that don't make much sense.

Looks hot....same as before.
