Re: got my wheels!!

i like it, but i think a darker gunmetal (like one the color of your car) would have been the best choice, but still, it looks good man!

Re: got my wheels!!

thanks guys for the comments... well when they were installing these new wheels i really really thought about stopping it but i wanted a change i have had the old wheels for two years since it came with the car straight out of the dealer but now the more i look at my new wheels the more i like them and i think its gonna flow really good with a black c/f hood and c/f lip. dont you guys think??well my new wheels are in my room and i am planing on selling them ill post some pics of how they look with the car and outside the car but they are for sale!!!

Re: got my wheels!!

There are only two companies that I would deal with.
The best and #1 is Seibon here is a link: http://www.seiboncarbon.com/
The #2 is VIS racing here is their link: http://www.visracing.com/index_split.html?agreecheck=ON

If you buy one of the two manufacturers I just provided, you will not need to use hood pins. If you purchase any other hood, you will. The difference is they way they laminate the latch. So if you want a good hood that will look good and stay that way for a long time then get one of the two mentioned. If you want a piece of crap that will not last, fade and will require hood pins then get any other.

BTW,
I like the old wheels better.

That is just my $.02
