VX rims... Update with pictures

My second day with the new rims and tires at the right pressure (60 psi). The only real comparison I have it my rolling test. I started from the top of a hill from a dead stop to see how far I can coast. I only got to do it 2 times on the new rims but I can not get over the last uphill like I could on the old rims. I am sure there are other variables that I am not taking into account but so far they dont look to "roll" as far as the old ones. Of course there is also the tire size change to remember 175-70-13 to 185-70-13 but who knows. Any way here are the pics: (all comments welcome)

Also remember that your new tires might be cheaper than the older tires. Cheaper rubber usually means less rolling resistance.

New tires are all Firestone. Old tires were 2 different brands (forgot both) from the used tire place. I would bet that the new firestones are much better or at least cost more.

Very crappy job. They painted over the wheel weights then moved them. Looks like crap but as you can see looks are way down my list of concerns.

Can you take a side shot to see how the VX wheel offset look on a CRX? I have some 15x7 +35 wheels on my silver car and the outside of the wheel is about flat with the side of the car, I don't expect any stock wheel to get even close to doing that, but I thought I remembered the VX wheels have less offset then other stockers??? Thanks for the help!

Are you looking for a picture from the rear showing how far the tires stick out? Not 100% what you are asking but would be more than happy to do take any picture you need.

Yea... something from the front and rear would be awesome. I'm just trying to see how far in the wheels are.
