I am going to plasti dip in anthracite. Will post pics when done. Hopefully hold me over until the original tires are done.
Can't wait to see it. I was thinking about doing a set of GS wheels in anthracite. I currently rock anthracite on black on my daily; I pick up my black TourX on Saturday.

I’d recommend against plasti dip on wheels, particularly if you utilize a car wash
Touchless have seemed to work ok. Just picked mine up today and I have to say I do like them up close... maybe I will wait for the weather to get better

Hey all...

Picked up my car yesterday and posted this before but I'll try again...

I'm thinking Cascada wheels should be a direct fit offset of 41 instead of 40 w/same bolt pattern (they are both Opels)

Now can we dig a little deeper has anyone put a bit larger tire on their car?
With the 20's I'm thinking 245/40/20 (+1.7)
or is there enough room to put this one in 235/45/20 (+3.9)
I think personally the wheel openings need to be filled out more

You should be ok with the 245/40, but I highly doubt the 235/45. That much more tire I’d be shocked if you didn’t have rubbing turning.

Stock tire. 235/50-18 is 27.25 dia.
245/40-20 is 27.71" diameter or 1/2" larger. Fine by me.
235/45/20 is 28.37"
That is sort of big, as it is so close to the shock strut.

I like the Opel/Vauxhall wheels. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to get a hold of them, although I looked these up and they seem to be 20". Would be nice to have in an 18" to keep the bumps down and better mpg.

The baddest wagons I ever owned were all three of the 149 1991 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro Wagons that were imported into the US. Only available with 5 speeds and loaded (for their day) with the only choices being exterior and interior color and "Sport" or "Comfort" seats in the front. .....
WAGONTHEDOG - Note my screen name. Our sport red Essence resurrects our long lost, but not forgotten, tornado red 200QA MC2. Not quite the panache of a 20V, but closish.... We had two. The first one was totaled by a driver who ran a red light. The second one was still going strong at 245,000 mi when we sold it in 2012 because my wife wanted the kids in a car with more than one airbag. Fun fact - As long as the Audi looks, the Buick is actually longer. By I think 3 inches.
