One of the great staples of newbeetle.org, the car with the most mods that looks completely stock, and Totally sick! And also Pomelo couldn't be owned by the most loved and loving person on the org.

Hi Guys and Gals

I decided that it was time to fix a tiny foible I made. Yes even I make mistakes hehehe.

The 215/55 16s are rubbing in corners and its time to replace them with the proper size. So I sold the 16X7 Mille Miglia A1s with the Dunlop Graspics to WaWalker and ordered myself a new set of wheels and tires from www.tirerack.com.

I got the 16X7 Sport Edition F2s and 205/55VR16 Dunlop Wintersport M3 snow tires. I will post pictures on October 1st.

arrrgghhhh six days.. I feel like a kid waiting on Santa

Tara. My Mille Miglia Action Sports came from www.tirerack.com They are no longer available in the "black chrome" option but you can still get them in bright silver.

Speaking of www.tirerack.com I placed an order with them last Friday night.

Sport Edition F2 16X7 silver rims.




205/55VR16 Dunlop Wintersport M3 ultra high performance snow tires.



I sold off my old set of Mille Miglia A1s and Graspic snow tires to WaWalker. He intends on using them on his wifes Jetta. I think they will look fantastic on there. Thanks for helping me out by installing my new rims and taking these pics, Bill and I hope your wife loves her new rims.
