    After much discussion, we ordered some Volk LE37T in gloss black. The last set in the country. 18x9ET40. Not as much lip as these, but the best pic I could find (and a hot car to boot!)

    18x9ET40. All they had left at Mackin. I was going to get BBS CH (two sets left, on their way from Germany now), but don't want to wait another two weeks to get them. About the same money.

    With the H&R's and 20" Parada Spec-X, the ride is a bit rough for our 5mo old in the back (Recaro seat even ;) ). I like the stance, so, the alternative is to roll back to a smaller wheel and tire size. 19's are pointless...tires are few and far between and $$$$, so 18's will work. Hope it doesn't look too silly.

    I'm going to order either Avon Tech ST in 265/60/18 or Yoko Geolander's in the same size. We need an A/S tire around here and even with AWD, the Parada Spec-X were a bit sketchy in the snow. Any other suggestions I should look at? The only reservation on the Avon's is the silly 45lb weight.

    I have 17" Work VS-XX on order for my MINI Cooper, so I had to do something a bit different on the FX.

    I love my volks and have a hard time choosing what wheels to run on. my ordens are sweet beeing 22's, but driving with my volks on, i can notice a big diff on performace, about 15lbs lighter per wheel of unsprung weight. Congrats on your new wheels, your going to love them even more once you drive with them.

    those are LE37T's. TE37 = normal. LE = Limited Edition. For '04-06, they were gunmetal, for '07, they were gloss black. Thanks for teh pics.....exactly what I wanted to see :) I had 16" TE37 Time Attack for my MINI...the spokes were flat and had no dish. The Nissan apps look much better

    wheels should be coming my way tomorrow. I ordered Avon Tech ST in 265/60/18. Not crazy about the 45lb weight, but they're 9" wide tread vs. the 38lb Yoko Geolanders which are only 8.4". The Volks should make up for it over stock...I'll weigh them before mounting. Should be a nice setup...got a fresh alignment this morning.

    Nice! Yes, you can get an oem TPMS off ebay but make sure they will fit with these wheels(sometimes the holes are too small). Also, once you get them you will have to have the dealer program it for your FX.

    any idea on what they charge? I'm considering having the shop swap the existing TPMS off the stock wheels and buying new ones for the buyer of the stock set.
    saves me a trip to the dealer.

    Probably cheaper to remove the old set off the stock wheels then to get new ones re-programed at the dealer. But you should call a few dealers and ask pricing.
