My Eurotech 168 Replicas are finally on!

I got the Eurotech 168 Replicas back in April and ordered the Toyo tires. Unfortunately, they were backed order and I just got them last week and had them installed on Friday.

I had the shop spin the wheels and they were round and true, no problems. I have put on about 300 miles on them now and I like the way they look and feel. I had 18's on there with SP, so the ride was pretty bumpy already, not much difference with the 20's. Traction on the wider 315's feel better, though I did manage to make the tires squeal on a tight sharp turn. Powerwise, initially I thought I lost some power, don't know for sure, but I got use to it pretty quickly. Mileage-wise, a little too early to tell.

The only complaint I have with the wheels are that the center cap fits kind of loose in the wheel. It's not going to fall out, but just kind of loose. Here are some photos with the new shoes!

Looks great! Best wheels that go with 4.8 kit.
Did you paint the grill and hood gills to match the body paint?

Outstanding!!!! Very nice X5!
Not sure if anyone else feels the same but when I went to the same set up, my gas milage was better on the highway. Have not really paid attention city.

Yes, that was painted a while ago. I am happy with the wheels. Thanks for all the kind comments.
