    Of course I will - the rims are from a Swiss Porsche tuner company called Rinspeed (they were bought last year by a German Bentley/Rolls/Aston Martin tuner Mansory). The wheels are designed for Cayenne so I will have to use 20 mm thick PCD adapters from 5x130 to 5x112 made - the ET on the rims is so it will not be a problem... Anyway will post pics as soon as I have the wheels on the car...

    22"? My God. I wonder how does the Airmatic feel :) Those wheels are for SUV... You sure wanted a low rider ...

    Airmatic feels just fine - the ET is the same as original - and I hardly lost any comfort - they make more noise of course - original tires are 235 - these are 285 - and the car consumes a little more fuel - with original wheels about 9 l/100 km - and with these 11 l/100 km - Yes I know - these wheels were originally designed for Rinspeed Chopster based on Porshe Cayenne... My company represents Rinspeed (or actually Mansory these days) on the Swedish market.... So the wheels have a PCD of 5x130 and I had to use adapters - 15 mm front and 30 mm back...
