Nice wheels, looks good on black, 'specially with the red caliper

But I don't know- I've just never liked 6-spoke wheels. Or 3-, 4-, 7- or 9-spokes either, for that matter...

Let's see a whole-car pic

Dang, those are the SAME rims I got (but not installed), but mine are Gun Metal with Polished Chrome Lip.

I sold these rims because they are like 7 pounds heavier than the stock rims. I actually lost some gas mileage due to the increase in unsprung weight. I'm going to put Konig feathers on when I get rims again. They are the same weight when you add the tires as the stock rims and tires but with an increase in contact patch and diameter. Unless you have some power adders to add to make up for the extra weight you will notice it like I did.

Got bored yesterday so I figured I would experiment with rim colors. I painted them bronze. They have a little metal flake in them when the sun hits them. When they are in the shadows they look really dark.
