I guess. Problem is everything else in my car is CF and I think these in a dark color would complete it. I got CF mirror caps on the way, got CF grilles and spoiler. I also got black exterior shadowline trim.

Also, IMO, a red car looks awesome with darker wheels

Want them like this:



Also, its cheaper/more convenient to get them done now since the powdercoater/painter won't have to have my car and also I don't have to pay him to dismount the wheels and tires hehe

I dislike flat black very much. Also I got these slightly used at a super deal

To me, rims make a car pop out and say look at me. These silver ones definitely do that. I saw pics of the matte black ones and they look like they are hiding

copycat :P


I agree. They look better dark, that dark grey that they come in on the 18" is fantastic to me. You should try to emulate that color.

I've called about 6 different shops in my area and the lowest price has been 550 dollars for all 4 wheels : (. I thought it would be like 250-300ish to powdercoat. Didn't think it was so expensive. I think I am just going to buy a gunmetal vinyl kit from dipyourcar.com, and if that doesn't work, then I will just leave them as is. Getting them painted is almost as much as it cost to get the wheels

got wheels installed today. Took a long time because the people at discount tire kept making mistakes x_x. They put on my wheels without the centering rings and I saw from the window. They told me my car was done, and when I noted the centering rings were not installed, the manager went back and yelled the shit at them.

Will take more pictures later, only had iPhone pics : )

Went with 225 front 245 rear. Car feels SOOOO much grippier
