RIMS
Like I said before, I made up my mind and am going with the RH GT5 black with machined lip. What does a machined lip look like? Will there still be a noticeable difference between the lip and the tire? I have a black car so I don't want the wheels to blend into the tires. I want some sort of contrast. Will the machined lip provide a noticeable contrast?

Thanks for all the help yall. Your advice is really making my decision a whole lot easier. thumbsup

you'll have a bit of a contrast..a machined lip really isn't much different.

as you can see, the lip will come up over your tire almost the same as your stock rims does thumbsup
