Sounds as if we were in the same situation. I finally feel like I made the right decision. A diffuser would be nice. I've been trying to cram my current mods into a short period of time so maybe in the future I can purchase a diffuser. I've been installed a diffuser on any of my vehicles. How is a diffuser installed?

Looks good!

When I had white cars picking wheel finish was the hardest thing. I constantly kept changing wheels cause I was never satisfied.

Hey Alan, thank you for checking it out. I'm happy with the way it came out. The car visually looks lower to me with these wheels. The wheel well gaps are smaller. Thank you for answering all my private messages and giving me advice.

don't know if you know of a shop. shades of grey did a great job on my f1 pinnacle tint. I went with 18% and looks amazing on mineral. Can still see the interior which is a big plus. They did however not seal my amp well and it did get a little wet; but all is well.ill post pics if I the app ever allows me to post my iphone pics. Apparently an iphone 6 pic is too large for the app.

Yes I have heard of Shades of Grey. If I'm not mistaken its close to where I bought my car. There are a few local places near me but not sure who to trust. So you're amp wasn't ruined was it? Pics would be great if thats possible. I'd love to check it out.

They look good and a lot like my wheels in design. Did you weight them though? I notice that often these off-brands all seem to be too heavy. Silver is the right color. Black makes the wheel wells appear to be deep black chasms of nothingness.

Thank you very much for the compliments. I have H&R sport springs installed for suspension. In my opinion turned out to be a great drop. Not too much, not to little.

Same to you brother. You have a beautiful setup and vehicle. Are those BBS wheels you have? Very beautiful. Our wheels are similar in design but those BBS are far more superior is quality. Very very nice. And thank you for the kind words.

What set of wheels do you own? I believe the manufacturer said these were 25 or 26 pounds each. So nothing too terrible. Everyday I'm liking the color more and more. I'm glad I switched it up from the regular black.

I found someone that weighed theirs, the 20x11 was around 23.45 LBS. Not so bad...

I think the wheels look great. I am a big fan of silver wheels so you get a lot of love from me.

The only different thing I would hope for is more concave in the front.

ThanK you very much. I'm glad most people are digging the setup. Your right on with the front wheel though. Wishing it was concave. I'm not sure why they recommend 20x9 instead of 20x10 but that's what they said works best. Overall I'm very happy with the wheels and the look they give the car. Thank you again for you're compliment.

I like the silver. Agreeing with many on this thread, there are a lot of white cars with black wheels. To me the details are lost on black wheels. Grey or silver or colored are nice.

Thank you for checking it out. I'm glad you liked how it came out. Everyday I like it more and more. Somehow it continues to grow on me.
