    I started reading this thread and decided to try these wheels too. Just hope they're worth it. Anyway thanks for the heads-up.

    I ordered the chrome ones on a 07 white diamond, should be delivered tomorrow. Putting on Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 245/45ZR18 all around. Hope to start mounting them tomorrow evening if I can get them on the wheel without to much trouble.

    Here is a sneak peak of the v-replicas in black chrome with the factory caddy center caps! No worries, I will get better pictures that are during the day. I love the wheels, they look great and they bolted right up! Unfortunately for me I found out that my goodyears not only look stupid with the wheels but are so incredibly out of round that they were what was causing the vibration in the first place. They are junk and they are barely a year old. I would definitely recommend sportier looking tires for these wheels. Good news is though, the factory rims that I need to sell, just need powder coated or refinished and should be good to go!

    Iceman_jd,
    That is a very nice looking ride, those rims look right at home. Question for you, they appear to be chrome but just to be sure are those the chrome replica wheels or the black chrome that CadiFTW installed on his ride? Thanks.

    Alright everyone, I finally got some pictures of the new wheels and swapped out the goodyears that I originally had on for some sportier run flats. Sorry for the crappy quality!

    Thanks! But I'm pretty sure it's one level below V's, so I think it's FE4. I want to drop the back a little but not sure how to go about doing the conversion from the air ride.

    What air ride? You have Nivomat self leveling shocks, no air whatsoever, it's all done inside the shock itself.
