This is now the second set of wheels I've had for a car that doesn't even exist yet. =P (my 19" Rays wheels are still for sale, hit me up with any offer at all)

Ignore the blue on the lip, it's just tape.

Work VS-XX in special color 'burning black' (similar to SSR's SBC color):
20x9 +23 front
20x11 +37 rear (~3.75" of lip!)

Both of my cars will be part of the Work VS family. =)













Who knew wheels came with instructions?

Yep and thanks again, would have been interested in your coilovers also if you didn't sell them already. =P

To anyone else who's considered buying anything from Sizzle, just do it already! Great price, great guy

I didn't weight them, but a friend with similar sizes weighed in at about 25 lbs each for the big ones, slightly less for the fronts.

Coilovers aren't sold yet because the KW V1 is actually not released yet. Ragazzi does have a reserve on them however....

Man, the more I look at those rims the more I want to see them on the car. I think it's going to look very hot on your color!!!

The KWs, you guys aren't talking about Platinum in Irwindale, are you?
Nope, KW Suspension is a subsidiary of the German company KW Automotive whose North American division is located in Sanger, CA. KW Automotive is the parent of Belltech, LSD Doors, and ST Suspension also.

What finish are those wheels? They kinda look like the I-forged essen wheels. Are they brushed silver or aluminum because it doesn't look like it in the photos, looks more like a titanium or steel finish.

Not to steal his thunder but they are a custom finish called "burning black". It's actually a discontinued color, but since I have a lengthy track record with Work, they made me a set.

The reason the color was discontinued is because they make a batch of the color exclusively for each set of wheels. If you damage a wheel and need to replace it, it is very possible that the color will be off because each batch comes out slightly different.....:cool:

God Damn burning black is nice!:D I can't wait to see what it will look like with the brushed and chrome accents around the exterior, unless you got rid of those

Awesome -- yeah I've always felt like Work Wheels were under appreciated in the euro community, but then of course there are the purists who think it's blasphemy to put a Japanese wheel on a German car.

*shrug

I think choosing the A5 or S5 over their obvious rivals is already all about breaking convention (like the Audi commercial where the kid is talking to his school career counselor). No sense in trying to be 'traditional' with wheels.
