I can't find any great pictures to work with tongue

I assume it will look exactly like it does now, except the calipers will be shiny and black... Or whatever type of paint you get wink

You guys think I should invest in black lug nuts to match the Black calipers? Or should I invest that in a Ground Wire Kit instead?

Holy crap, that looks bad ass with the black lug nuts. I dunno if this is too much but can someone chop the body of the car into the stock silver color. I want to see/imagine how it would look on my car (Silver) versus black.

THANKS!

So I will put that plan into motion. Already purchased the brake cleaner and the black caliper paint. Just need some black lug nuts.

Anyone know a place to get those black lug nuts? Something that is not expensive but pretty good quality and will fit my stock GTS Rims?

Thanks!

You can paint stock lug nuts with the caliper paint? If so, how do I prevent them from being scratched when I am tightening or loosening?

lol, is a long process because I hardly have time to do so, hehe.

So if I was to paint my stock lug nuts, how does one screw it back in? Wrap it with some sort of a cloth or something?

they're centerline storms.

good luck finding many pictures with them...they're very new and centerline wheels aren't that popular.

yeah, thats the best pic i could find of them...got them off of some neon.

another thing i didnt like about them was that they were 17" and were one-piece forged (the 18 & 19 inch are two-piece forged and look more like the pic traviesa posted).

he also took the pic right up on the wheels (at first the wheel was bigger than the whole car before i resized it..but anyway as you can see he used the flash so the reflection was pretty bright)

not a whole lot of pics out there though, i gotta learn how to distort things a bit and still make them look fairly normal. i don't get that 3d distortion tool at all...they come out horrible looking lol

again..try and find the 18 & 19 inch sizes because these wheels are just like the centerlines--they're 1-piece forged on the 17" versions and 2-piece forged for the 18 & 19 inch.
