Ever seen these rims? i want them....(More Pix)

Have these rims been posted about before? Anywho, long time back, I believe these came out at the Tokoyo Auto Salon. I think they're dope as hell. I think it's called the "Titan lip" finish. Not sure though, because I read an article in this magazine while back, they called it the "Stainless jacket" finish.
I want them.

This image is of the rim, but not the lip finish.

Re: Ever seen these rims? i want them....

Well i just posted these up in varners thread that i might be purchasing these wheels. They are the Gram Light 57S Pro with Titan finish. But the MSRP on them in 18" with RMC face finish and Titan lip is $4050. I've been in touch with my wheel guy and may pull the trigger and get these. But i can get them for a hell of a price for me.

That's funny we both just posted them up...

That's off the hook dude, I say get them if you can!! In my opinion they are some of the phatest rims I've ever seen. I don't like chrome, but this is perfect for me. Go for it. I'll be saving up for them too!

Yeah they're expensive, but that's what you pay for exclusivity.... And cool rims!

Re: Ever seen these rims? i want them....

here's the ones i'm getting if this goes through. I don't really like chrome either but these are so damn nice, they also make a glossy black face with titan lip, so i may do those.

I think the picture Drew posted is a G35, I'm sure you could have a crazy fat lip on the front and back of a car like that, but I wouldn't imagine that lip like that would fit on the civic.

i <3 those rims, but I dont think they will look good on our civics.
IMO they only look good on certain cars.

Re: Ever seen these rims? i want them....

that's the same pictures i was looking at a couple weeks ago, but then couldn't find the page again. i think they'll look awesome on our cars. 7 spoke wheel in 18" should. Only the smaller wheels will not look right.

Re: Ever seen these rims? i want them....

I think as long as you roll on an 18 you'd be cool. It's a shame we can't have a bigger lip but it's all good. I think it's just the whole "cool factor" that really makes these rims what they are. I mean, how often do you see someone rollin on rims that have chrome like that? I really think they should offer this type of gleaming color in individual colors. That's would be mad tight. Imagine a straight blue prism, or a straight red prism. If that's possible, I thin kit would be crazy.

Although I imagine that if I could afford these rims, then I would have them as show rims, and would actually cruise around with a set of Work Vs's for practicality. (I like the work VS-xx in gold. I might get them....
