Alright, I need some suggestions. I've dropped these off to get re-done, but I'm not sure what I should do with them?
First I was going to leave them with the machine finish, now I'm more leaning towards doing gloss white...
Any off the wall ideas? I'm not sure what goes good with blue.

How about brushed faces and polished lip? I know a guy in S. California that does very good work. Here's a picture of my Oz Futuras. For God's sake, please don't do gloss white or any weird color. Since you have a great color x1, keep your wheel color simple.


If I was on a budget, I'd try to do the factory machine finish and polished lips. Good luck man.

IMO, this looks fantastic!

Those are going to look great installed! Very aggressive fit and that finish looks great. When are they going on?

Not till April, we have seasons in MN lol.
These will be my dedicated summer set so after the snow plows stop salting and after the first big rain.

I think I'm going with:
235/45/18
265/40/18
Depends if I commit to coilovers this winter.

I regret finishing these this early last fall. Now I have to stare at them all winter.

Those Wheels are looking good and I think your tire selection will suit your wheels.
Just make sure their compatible with the offsets.

Finally got tires, only a year and a half later. I couldn't justify getting rid of the tires/wheel combo that it came with till they were worn out.
Now I just need the road salt to dissappear.
235/45/48 and 265/40/18.
Only wish there were some summer tires in these sizes that didn't break the bank.

Looks good! Thanks for sharing.

Any rubbing? Your car isn't lowered right?

Not that I'm aware of yet, did a few clover leafs at speed and some raised railroad tracks to be sure.
Correct, currently stock ride height.
