Oh man. Delivery can’t come any sooner. These are definitely giving me some black RPF1 vibes. Did you also pick up wheel locks?

I'm actually having a very hard time finding a wheel lock that works with these. The wheels use tuner lugs and there is not a lot of room between the lug and the rim for the installation key to fit in. So far I tried 3 locks and none of them worked.

why not just buy a set of lugs that use a dedicated key?

Wheel gap isn't too bad...i expected more. Might still get springs in the future though.

These tires are interesting. As expected the initial steering responsiveness is numbed compared to the OEM tires, but they still grip really well in the corners for an all-season with a 50k mile warranty....so far I'm impressed

I’m sorry if this question has been answered before but I wasn’t able to find it. Does anyone know what the lug nut torque specs would be for TE37SL secured with Project Kics Monolith lugs? Would it just be the 94 ft/lbs like stock? Thanks!

Enjoy. I'm super happy with how these turned out.

I just ordered the only other remaining set of these Montegi's, and the Continental Extreme Contact DWS Plus 255-40-18 from Discount Tire yesterday afternoon. They will go on my matching gray car. Can't wait to try them out. These wheels and tires seriously drop unsprung weight on the vehicle and others have reported some real gains in feel, overall handling and even accleration.

I believe it's about a 10lbs difference per wheel from the factory setup!
