Konig Oversteer + Barum 255/35/19

So i finally narrowed down my tire/rim search to a set of Konig Oversteers and Barum A/S tires

Konig Oversteers
19x8.5
22.57 lbs (10lbs less than stock I believe)

Barum Tires
255/35/19 96Y
23 lbs (3ish lbs less than stock I believe)
$89/tire - This scares me but the reviews are all super good and come from Audi/Volvo owners, if you have expirences with this tire please lmk and comment.

Whole set up including hub rings (70.1mm- 63.4mm), tpms, mounting, balancing etc is ~$1500.

Let me know your thoughts on the looks and setup as a whole. Hoping for a bit lighter setup and hopefully some better handling/grip along with better "looks"

Where is the ~$700 in labor coming from? Am I missing something?

The picture is only the price of the rims... perhaps that's where you are confused?

Rims = $812


Tires = $356


Exverything else = $332


??

Haha, yes I thought the tires were included. Thank you for pointing that out. Makes much more sense, I was nervous you were getting taken advantage of .

No worries, I realize that is a confusing picture now.

Any thoughts on the looks/setup or tires?

Tires are cheap but if they are reviewed well who am I to complain? Everyone likes a good deal. Wheels look good, you should attach the image from Tirerack where they superimpose them on our car to show what it might look like. Maybe a better visual for us to see and judge.

Cant find the konig ones on tirerack or any other sight thatll superimpose them.

This is a similar size/color/spoke count... my guess is a very similar look.

My only gripe is, if that is the actual wheel gap to the fenders I would strongly urge you to lower it. That looks awful. Wheels look good though.

That was my thought too. I think Ill wait to get them before I do but I think with the thinner sidewall (going from 240-235) that will only add to the massive gap on this car.

Do you have any experience with lowering? Any favorite springs or kits? Issues?
