Rims and tyres came in

Finally got my ATS rims in from Germany and they are now fitted with Nokian tyres from Finland. I went with 225/40/18's on the front and 255/35/18's on the rear.

First impressions are great. The Nokians zlines are definitely quieter then the Pirelli pzero's I had on the car. Once I bed them in a bit I will report on the grip. I've used Nokians on my cars when I lived in the States and they were fabulous especially in the wet and snow conditions in Pittsburgh. I was able to source the fronts locally but had to import the rears from America. Due to the fact we get ripped of down under on pricing even with shipping they were reasonable!
