    Re: put some new brakes on the ride!

    Those are some of the cleanest 22's Ive seen yet. I ve had three sets and all have been destroyed (bent rims) broken tie rods....alignment issues....come to the conclusion that i cant keep beating my ride up anymore.....bums me out but ive resigned myself to the 18" performance wheels.....those are extremely nice brother...

    Awesome. Low dust and really easy stops

    I use ceramic pads. I'm not sure if they do or not.

    Thank you sir, I only ever bent a 24. And those caused this car a lot of headache. These here are a good brand and everything is new on my car. So I'm confident that if I'm careful it will be OK. Plus the tire size is only 1% different than stock

    Yeah....22's will always be my favorite wheel.....its not the wheel or the quality of said wheel.....its simply the 30 series tire....I wish a 35 or a 40 would work and id never run anything else.....freeway transition took one driver front.....pothole took another....and an improperly graded saw cut section of the road took out all 4 at once. The city paid for that set....plus rental carand alignment costs....but ive been forced to recognise that a 30 series tire and the weight of the DTS just isnt compatible unless your roads are pristine....and here in the sacramento area unfortunately they are not.....but those wheels are easily the nicest ive seen yet.....im envious and truly wish you luck keeping them round....

    Yea they came with a set of 35s. I wish they would have fit. But Yea a pothole is what caught my 24. And I'm hoping to keep these around. Now keeping them clean on the other hand lol.
