damn, i didn't expect a reply so fast.
I will get some better pictures as soon as I can. I am hoping it stops raining tomorrow.
IMHO, these wheels are really bang for the buck. I have had $3000+ wheels on my jetta before, and it was annoying. With these, I can toss the car around and actually have fun with them, since they are so affordable to replace.

Good luck tryin to get them to ship to aussie, im sure sumone is gonna do it for a decent price.

Beautiful stuff man! So I take it you have no rubbing considering the ride height right? Go any lower and be prepared to roll and pull the hell out of those fenders or flare them.

thanks a lot guys.

No rubbing unless turned very hard.

ghetto rolled the fenders front and rear.

i don't think I will be going much lower, tracking the car.

Now, here's a question, how do you guys flare out the fenders? just get a fender roller and a heat gun and keep rolling?

Is that last pic of your interior actually that bright? If it is, I'll have to get on eBay and get me that interior light kit...

nice ride by the way!!

aweseome. i'm thinking of getting the 501's as well.. except my fenders arent rolled. did you have the fenders rolled before putting on the tires? will they fit w/o rolling fenders?

i'm on OEM suspension now, but will be installing KONI's soon.

the interior lights are bright, not picture bright. bright enough to see stuff in the interior, not bright enough to blind you when you drive at night.
I like them.

The 501s are great if you stick with 195 tires I don't think you will rub too much. But rollin the fenders are definitely recommended. I know because i didn't have mine rolled until i got the wheels... and I had to roll them the night I got the wheels.

I just my 501s yesterday!!!
No pics yet but they look awesome!!!
I put 195/50/15 kumho ATS (400 threadwear :) ) tires and I have no rubbing issues (I have rolled fenders).

Driving with the 195/50/15 khumos vs the usual 215/45/16 Azenis 615RT almost cost me an accident...while on the on ramp of the 405 I was trying to pass an old fart driving a lexus but the tail of the car had another opinion :)
I ended up passing him with reverse lock and at lest 45" angle of drift :)

What color 501's, and why are you going with a smaller tire? wouldn't the 205 be OK with the roller fenders and the 15 et?

.....the guy in the lexus must have been shitting bricks..lol

I want to have these as drift tires...I guess they can be everyday tires too as long as I'm getting used to the different limits that they have...
I also got scarred because I wasn't expecting it...it's not the best thing to drift in traffic on a wet on ramp #-o
Anyway going back to wheels they are awesome but the paint quality was kind of crap...
For the money and the weight they are the best wheels ever but please don't think too much about the color...it seems that you can achieve similar paint quality with a rattle can :mrgreen:
Again nothing bad but the paint was chipped off at the center cap area...
