Rims - Color
alright well the 18x8 o.z. superleggras in the gunmetal are on back order nation wide, but is "expected" to arrive in 2 weeks.
however shops have the limited edition race silver 18x8 superleggras in stock ready to ship.

now my question is, which color rims do you think would look best on my car? do you think the silver rims would match my theme?

Why are you looking at getting new ones? Why not keep the ones you have on your car now? I remember something about you messin up your wheel or something? Is that why?

thanks for the opinions everyone, but later this morning i will be ordering 4 race silver superleggras. i spoke with several o.z. dealers including o.z. themselves, and they all said the race silver superleggras were the original color in europe and are still used there. the titanium grey, or gunmetal, superleggras have been only available in north america. the gunmetal rims are described by the italians (in o.z. land) as a "dirty silver" color (no joke). o.z. is beginning to question the production of the gunmetal superleggras and as a result, north america is currently out of stock. many people consider gunmetal rims a fad mind you. o.z. is testing the north american market by listing the race silver superleggras as "limited edition", but don't be suprised if the silvers
completely replace the gunmetal supers. already o.z. has ceased production on the gunmetal 18x7 superleggras.

why i am ordering a new set of superleggras is b/c a tow truck (yes a tow truck) hit my parked vehicle from behind and sped off. its impossible to find one 18x7 replacement rim, since as mentioned above, the line has been cancelled.
