Thanks to Matt for the great service on getting the wheels and Will Stern, ace photographer from ADV.1, for making my car look better than ever. The offsets came out just right and the standard brushed finish with the clear powder coating will hold up better than any other clearcoat. They even weigh less than the original Carrera Classics.

What were the final weights Tom?

The ADVs weighed less than the Carrera Classics even though being a bit wider.

The Classic 8x19 was 24.0 lbs compared to the ADV 8.5x19 at 22.2 lbs and it was 26.6 lbs for the 9.5x19 Classic and 24.2 lbs for the 10x19 ADV.

Beautiful wheels, beautiful photos- calendar worthy. The wheels seem to bridge a gap between the Sport Design, to BBS & Champion, and then 5-spoke design; I'm not sure how but maybe it's the spoke depth.

Killer car.

Thanks everyone. Peter, the wheels worked out just right for technical me. It had the even spacing of the spokes aligning with the bolt pattern, and the front and rear rims had a similar lip and concavity.
