    wagons fucking rule. this is not up for debate.

    The only thing I dislike is that I'm going to have to roll the fenders if I drop it because I don't have the sedan's flares.

    I got an insane deal on these too... tires are virtually brand new, one minor curb rash on one wheel, and I bought them for $650 plus putting my stock rims on the guy's car. The best price I've seen these wheels new is $320 apiece without tires. And the tires alone are worth about $600.

    7.5 is all I can fit in the wagon's fenders. At least with AWD the 4 tires share a lot of the load, and launching really isn't an issue for me. It corners great on these regardless.

    I like them. I like my Volk GT-N's better.

    Comps are among my absolute favorites but couldn't afford them; I couldn't really afford P1s either, but the guy was selling them dirt cheap - they were on the car when he bought them and I don't think he was really aware that they're pretty damn pricey wheels. He threw in a set of wheel locks with the purchase too! :bigthumb:

    I do too. But I couldn't find 18" Volks with fresh tires on them for $650 unless I only wanted to do one corner and leave the other 3 stock.
