Konig Zero-In **Now Pics**

Does anyone on here have the Konig Zero-In's on their car? I'm pretty shure i'm going to buy these tomorrow. I like the Konig Swurve also but they are being discontinued.

Also, what would be a good way to paint over the red line that goes around the wheel? Could i just use some automotive touch up paint, or would it come off eventually from washing them? My car is the maroon color (I think sport red metalic) and think the red line would not match well.

Those look nice. I'd put them on the car before going over that line. But touch up paint would probably work best. Or some other enamel paint.

Very nice. That's not the stock tire size though is it? The sidewall looks bigger than normal.

Yes, the wheels are 17". the tires are 215/55/17 Michelin Primacy MXV4. It was an optional standard size. I think most of the older G6's had the 225/50/17. I was more conserned with ride comfort then handling, seeing as it's a 4 banger lol.

Not to mention I just bought the car brand new with brand new Michelins on it...I wasn't about to just throw them out.

Thats ok. Did you get an alignment? For some reason your back tire looks like its half an inch away from you fender wall.

I had just set the car down after installing them. Sometimes the wheels sit funny when first set down from the weight of the car. It hadn't been moved forward or back yet. But yah I should get it checked just in case.

I like those rims..... the ones I just bought are grey with machined face as well, you just can't tell in the pics I posted.

This is a better side / three quarter view. I was going to take some more pics today, but we had a nice snow storm move in and it has been coming down all day.

Hollywood, yah I really like your wheels too! I was trying not to spend that much money though lol... My main goal was to get the steel wheels off. I only eneded up paying $535 for the wheels, new lug nuts, and tax.

That's not bad at all. I am assuming you used the tires you already had and just switched them over to the new rims? My factory rims were starting to leak and were a bit scratched up, plus I needed new tires, so I figured what the hell....

Yah i just bought the car and it had brand new Michelin Primacy MXV4's on it. So I didn't want to go to 18's because of that. My Malibu has the 18"s though.

yeah I was going to choose between the Zero-Inn's or Illusion. What do you guys think? But if I get Illusion, it will be all black.
