New wheels!

It's been a while since I've posted.  I can blame the move, but laziness is just as responsible.  The new wheels were ordered from TireRack through my favorite shop, UroTuning.  They're made by O.Z. wheel, another favorite of mine, and called the Canyon ST.  The color is Matte Graphite Silver, and they're 18x8.  I wanted to go with a beefier tire than the stock setup, and decided on a 265/65/18.  I've seen up to a 285/60/18 fit with spacers on the front, and know of a few other Touareg owners who have the tire size I selected.  Still, when holding it up against the stock wheels, it's a wonder that these fit without much trouble.  The tire diameter ends up being about 3" bigger than stock, and will fill the tirewells so that the Touareg looks more like the offroad vehicle it was designed to be.

Amazingly, I was able to get all four of the wheels in the back of my R32 (which I finally have a serious buyer for.)  Here are the pics to prove it:
