Put some rims on my car!!

I don't know much about them, they came with my brothers car. Konig 17"

I do know that I could not work in a tire place. Putting the tires on those rims was almost the hardest thing that I have tried to do (with the car).

That's why the machines are there :P

Then you get the runflat 20 profile tires on the 24" rims... those are just a f'n pain in the ass.

I don't see how people put those tire on without hurting the wheel. More so taking the old tires off.
Thanks,
Diana

I worked at a Firestone for a couple of years. The new machines don't even touch the rim. After you pop the bead off, you use an arm that is about 1/4" above the rim and a bar to get the tire off of the wheel.

BTW the rims look good! 8)

Very low profile runflats are a bitch. Dodge prowler rears are a fine example of these tires.

For all other tires, yep, the machines are wonderful. Old tire off and new tire on in under a minute.

Those Konig were in my "wanted list" before I found the OZ.
Look Nice!

when I had my tires, kumho ecsta supra 225/45, mounted to my 17" konig's I was told not to bring them back to that shop because of how much of a pain in the ass they were to get on. Maybe its something with konig.

Here is a quick pchop I did. Rims are BBS from a BMW, I didnt know what you were looking for so I put what I like.
BTW the Konig's you have on there now are very nice, personally if I wasn't looking for BBS myself I would consider
buying those from you.

Here is a pic of my Corrado with BBS's. (not a chop)

Big Guch - Those are BIG!!!!

There are a couple things that I don't like about the Konigs:
1. They have been curb checked like crazy and one is bent kinda bad.
2. The little rivets around the rim. I would like it tons more if they were not there.

Thanks for all the comments - I was very scared about what it would look like, but it is growing on me.
Thanks,
Diana

Go to tirerack.com - they have a cool simulator to show you what your car will look like with all different kinds of wheels on there and they probably sell BBS
