New wheels :)
Tuesday, April 10, 2012 6:52 PM
My new shoes arrived today! Stance SC-5 in matte silver with chrome lips. I know, they're essentially replicas of the Vossen CV3, but the spokes, step lip, and chrome lip differentiate them from the Vossens. That, plus the CV3s aren't offered in 19"s... so, specs on these are 19x8.5"/9.5" 35mm/38mm offsets F/R. Mounted on Achilles ATR tires, 225/35/19 and 245/35/19 (I wanted 235s for the front, but would've had to wait like 3 more weeks.... ). I didn't take many pics of the wheels pre-mounting, the UPS guy followed me up my driveway after class today and I ran them down to the shop to have 'em mounted, I was too excited. It got dark out, so I'll add daylight pics tomorrow! Also, they were missing a centercap when they arrived, already remedied and have one coming in a few days. Also, I'm ordering BC coilovers this week, hoping to have my stance dialed in for the ATL Hennessey Lexus meet the end of this month!
These shots are not great by any means (didn't realize I had the camera on manual focus until it was a little late and it was getting dark, so yeah...) but comments and criticisms welcome

I guess I haven't been around that much. Had no idea you moved on. Clean sc300 for sure. Will check back in for suspension after shots.

Thanks man! I actually wanted to do those 9.5"s all around, really badly, but after test fitting, they would have stuck out a bit too far in the front, and I'd rather not ruin the fenders!

No 5x100 bolt pattern available, plus 19's would've been a bit much on the vert! But bagged, they would have probably looked freaking sick, haha. I'd love to see a chop of my old car on these wheels...

Yep, I sold the vert back in September actually! Got $5,900 for it and the extra parts I kept and sold later! I miss it on nice days like this when the sun is shining, but the power and style of the SC is far nicer. And my girlfriend has a 2000 Sunfire sedan, so I'm not totally out of the J scene, yet, lol

It was missing! I called the shop I got the wheels from and it should be here in a few days! Stance must have missed putting it in the box... and thanks! I love them too, I kinda wish I went with one size wider tires all around, but they might be better once I go lower! and Arnel chopped the car lower, I'm sooooo excited!

Different strokes Thanks, though! Glad I could sorta change your perspective on the model

Haha, I'm definitely damn impressed with them so far. The 4th centercap arrived yesterday too, so it all looks good! Although I need two more lugs... lol

Thanks Joe! I'm hoping so! The wheels fit perfectly, so hopefully once its lowered I won't need to space them out or anything...

another update:
I know it's not as low as the cool stance kids, but its pretty low for now. just got an alignment (after this quick pic), so there's less camber all around now. If i go any lower, I need the fenders rolled and then I'll have to run more camber than I'd like, so this should do for now! sorry for the @!#$ty instagram picture, I only have a few iphone shots, so the dslr ones will come this weekend!

Yeah it would look a ton better if the tires weren't stretched. Or a larger tire as well. Otherwise I think they look better than the last set on there.

I had ordered those same wheels for my G8. Love the design. Then seeing them on a G8 made me realize that they don't lok as good on the G8 as they do on other cars. Giovanna makes a version of this wheel design in other colors as well including all chrome.
