Test fitted the wheels today man I happy with the fitment!!! I got Photos but only have my iPhone atm so canT upload them!! I'll do it tomorrow.

Quick question though.. There is a littlE spikes that is next to the studs.. And also a little bolt!!

What are they? Can I remove them?

My old 850 had them but my other 249 doesn't!

Thanks guys

You can take them off.

They just hold the rotor to the hub or help line up a stock wheel.

i vote less visor on this car, just doesnt do it. looked better on the old 244 it came on. im really exited to see how these rims look with tires on the car. i always wanted to order a set from them but kinda was reluctant on if i would like the look. white would be the color i would have gotten also your wagon looks great!

I dont own the 244 DL anymore.. sold it to my little sister! I think once the wheels are on it, it will work!!!

I think i might remove the badge on the grill.. i wasnt sure about it when i painted it but now looking at the photos it has to go..!!!

I think so too. the visor on it right now doesn't look right, the wheels will really complete the look. I think the visor should have stayed black though, and I think the badge/slash should stay, but that's just me. Also, if you're not riding on bumps after you get those wheels on it, I will be very disappointed. The shaved gate looks sick, as does the planned sticker for the rear.

Yea thats what i have beent thinking since i put it on..

really didnt like the black.. i though i would do it white cause i could do it my self i think once the wheels are on the white will match.. if it doesnt it will be going red haha

I would prefer the cleaner simple grill with out the badge.. but ill wait a bit and see if i change my mind on it haha

yep it will be quite low once the wheels are fitted.. going to have to get a new exhaust made up as this one sits quite low in spots..

still deciding on the tail gate.. i think i will get a price on it and see what it will set me back!!
