Where can you get VXR wheels in 5x110 in the states?

I found a link or two to places in the US besides eBay. But so far, I don't want to spend $725 on reps, I would spend $600-650. The eBay UK auctions are 500-$580 BINs, just gotta get shipping quotes.

Us Vermont boys would get a good laugh when you are spitting out your fillings. I put my SPG down to 15's from 16's, VI9000Z did the same... dropped all my 17's to 16's...
But yeah, those VXR wheels look like you pooled all your birthday money and borrowed 300$ from your step-dad.

What are VXRs oem on ? I've never seen them before. I cannot fathom how those rubber band tires and undersized brakes look cool.

Love you all

Oh, I forgot that you stopped by PayDay Advance to get the rest of the money for tires to go on the VXR's... Better pay your step dad back first though.

Just having some fun.

Vermont roads are really that bad? After this winter I am definitely doing some mad pothole avoidance in MA.

VXR wheels were on Euro Opel's making them rare in the US.

I lived in Detroit for years. Are you really claiming VT has worse roads?

I would normally pass on a 5 spoke but I have a thing for these Audi wheels.

I had a PDR guy with skills come to the house today. Each rear door had a nasty dent and there was about 15 small ones in the hood. All gone! Car is really shaping up.

Wellll, considering Vermont has 8000 miles of dirt roads, and only 6000 miles of paved roads (including the two main Interstates), and the paved roads we have are bombed out beyond belief. Then yes. VT has some of the worst roads around.

I've bent multiple sets of OEM SAAB 17's over the years, and I am very careful to avoid the nasty stuff. We generally have a month of frost heaves that will literally break cars. I see shattered oil pans, destroyed ball joints, broken springs. I saw a brand new Kia on the side of the road last month. Entire front strut dangling after hitting a particularly nasty heave.

I run 16's year round on the Sport Combi, and 16's on the '99 in the winter/spring. The 17's are for summer use and I pick my routes with care. The roads can be so bad that between the tramlining and the potholes, I'm all over the road like a labrador on acid. Whenever I go to visit my in-laws in MD, I'm in utter disbelief at how beautiful the roads are. I used to think PA had bad roads, until I moved to VT.

So what your saying is stay out of VT? :P

The damage you describe with cars along the side of the road applies to Detroit too. Dirt roads, not so much. More like houses turned to rubble spilling into the streets and the need to dodge crack heads making drug deals.

Yeah, I'm sure Detroit proper has crumbling infrastructure. Either way, running 35 or 45 series tires sucks around here. It makes me regret lowering the car and putting the Konis on every March.

The wagon looks great, BTW! What did the dent removal run you?

$240 with tip for 3 panels, but 20+ small dings on the hood.

^Not bad! Thanks! I have a few small dents in the rear hatch on of the Combi that I'd love to get smoothed out. Maybe one or two small door dings too, less expensive than I thought it would be.

I start a new job next week which is 45 miles each way so doing a bit more to get the car solid. This week replacing the check valve(vac leak) and throwing on a new serp belt and idler pulley.

Nice. I don't remember, but is your car short belted from the factory? (2006+ cost cutting )

LOL.

I can't tell, because I went to pop the hood but grabbed my flimsy '06+ inner door grab and it broke off, so I am fixing that now. *

I can arrange that for you, probably around $100. GREAT PDR Guy, does ALL our cars.

Vermont roads are horrendous. Good for the car repair business! Bad for my own cars!

I have been PILING miles on this thing going back and forth between MI and Nj while we close on the house. I am over 120k already.

Stock/original suspension takes away a lot of fun.

Luckily I scored new in box Koni yellows front and rear at a GREAT price local to me.

I have the B&G springs sitting around.

Now I just need poly, rear sway bar, and wear items like strut mounts and maybe steering components and balljoints. I basically want everything wear related front and rear redone.
