New Chrome wheels!

Just put on some 18 x 8 chrome Avenue wheels. I went for these because they have a little of the fat and skinny spoke look (classy) with the bolt on pattern between them (sports/race look). Any feedback would be appreciated.

Maybe yes maybe no, what drop do you have?
(Mine is the H&R and is very low with a 275 tire)
Rolled a week ago and still small rub, the plastic part by the rear bumper.
Cut of a small piece and all is well now.
A fellow member is coming by today to roll his fenders.
Will try to take some pictures....

I do not think you will have to roll your fenders. I have 19x8.5 w/38 offset and 19x10 w/44 offset, wrapped with Nitto Nt555's Extreme ZR 245/35/19 front and 275/30/19 rear and no rolled fenders here.
I have the Tein S-Tech springs as well, all with no issues!!!!
I will try to post some pic's in a little bit........

You are right on that one. Those springs drop the car more than mine.
But that LOOKS pretty damn nice. Kudo's to you Modena.

yep, that's the right word. it floors me that nobody has come up with a "dropped shock" for our cars (except for coilovers, but who wants to spend over a grand when all they need is a shorter shock?) Whoever is the first ones to bring that to market correctly will probably make a fortune. Maybe there are advantages/disadvantages to having springs/shocks as opposed to a full blown coilover setup, but I'm no expert on that so I won't even try to go there. Those wheels/stance on your look awesome, can't wait to do some work on my car in that area, should have a drop by June, wheels are going to take longer though (big sigh)
