netz badge? is that another name for the Ist badging I am not aware of.

they Rims are 18" x 8" i believe

the tires are Kumho Ecsta AST in 225/40r18

unfortunately they already have a scratch.. was passing a dump truck and a rock came off of it and hit the rim. soooo pissed.. it hasn't even been to a show or cruise yet. :( Anybody know how to patch up a matte black wheel?

seriously.. i need to stay far far from dump trucks. when i had my xB, a rock came off of one. broke the car in front of me's window, hit the ground then bounced up and took a nice chunk of paint out of my bumper. ugh.. the car was two weeks old

I posted this picture on SL the other day.. wanted to share it here... it turned out great

oh and I hit an unavoidable hard bump today and the wheel rubbed against the plastic in the wheel well. I'll be careful for now and next year when i drop the car again after winter I won't make it as low

no shit. i'm striking a deal with the GM of the dealership and the service manager about getting them mounted and balanced. since they can't fix my keyless, i figure i'll play that "you owe me" card...

Ride is ok.. but I do need to lift the car up about a half inch. the 18's are wider so if I hit a bump really hard it rubs on the plastic liner.
