Well, as it turns out, some bad news...
The Privat Profils are too low offset (+32mm) and as it turns out, my front tires are rubbing occasionally when I hit a bump with the wheel turned.
The dealer took a look at it and told me that I could probably get away with it if I changed down to 215s instead of my current 225s. My other option is to change to wheels with a higher offset...
I chose the latter. I am currently talking with the people who I bought my wheels from to get some other wheels for test fit; the wheels must be at least +40mm offset or else I don't want to bother with them; my original reason for getting such low offset wheels was to make sure I cleared my big brakes. Oh I cleared them alright; I can stick my fingers in the gap between the caliper and the spokes, so that means I have at least 10mm to play with, if not more, but it really depends on the spokes on the wheels. Anyway, one of the techs at my dealer has a tC and he wants to buy these wheels off me, so hopefully I won't lose too
much money due to this debacle.
Since I already have the brakes this time around, I can do actual test fitting before buying the new wheels. I've so far narrowed my list of options down to seven different ones, which I will contact my wheel dealer out in Long Island about tomorrow and see if they can get some of them for test fit by midweek. I'll stop by some time during the week after work if they have them, and then hopefully once I have the ones I want picked out, I can stop by again Saturday for them to dismount my tires from the Profils, mount and balance them on the new wheels and mount the whole setup onto my car.
Luckily, the damage to my tires so far is merely cosmetic.
