At least a Tempix... maybe a Tempa? Depends on what language string is attached.

Who owns the red Merk with the gold wheels. I'd like to know what size and offset they are, and tire size. They look 18's...great filling,

FWIW, I think those are 4x100 bolt pattern on that car. They look great on the car in person.

Hmmm...wonder why you like that pic so much... :-)

But it doesn't include your son in the oink oink hat. You know he's going to get even with you for that hat. I'm betting he'll wreak revenge on you once he goes to school and sees the headwear other parents put on their kid's domes.

You've got about 3 years before the shite hits the home fan. :-)
