Default Summer wheel/tire setup

So I finally took off my winter wheels/tires, took me long enough and picked up something for the summer. Wheels are 17x7.5 Sparco Assetto Gara wrapped in Hankooks Ventus V12 - $105 a pop plus $80 discount, not bad.The only downside is the big ass gap, but I'll have to live with it for now...

Don't take that wrong, i would love me another Bonneville or a GPGT. Been looking for one that needs work to fix up and keep as a daily. 3800s are the best, 3800s ARE the fastest.

looks sick. gives that car a whole lot more personality IMO!

have no idea if they came that way but always thought they were pretty neat looking. real smooth looking.

saw one that said SPEC B on it once, have no idea what the difference was but it sounded like an STi.

I'm running the same wheel in the same size on my GTI. They've held up to some mild abuse just fine. I like the color you went with too. I also have dramatic wheel gap, but I'm okay with it on a daily driver.
