I'd say hot is a gross understatement.
Yeah- that's a very nice look!
One more thing: tire brand and sizes?
I should also add - the race car took many hits directly to the wheels and we bent plenty of suspension components - strut housings, control arms, ball joints, tie rods - but never sheared any studs (M12x1.5 lug bolts, actually) or anything like that.
They are XXR 531’s. 18x9.5” and 18x11”. Can’t remember the offset/backspacing off of the top of my head, but I put those specs in another post early on in this thread.
I painted them black with some Plastidip to see how they’d look, and I am now surely going to paint them all-black. Just need to decide on what shade and matte to have it be matte or semi-gloss.
Apologies for the poor picture. Just through them on real quick to see how they’d look. Yes, I need to wash the car.
Right - I was asking about your rubber.
Wheels look good all black.
My mistake. 275/35/R18 and 315/30/R18, if I remember correctly.
Thanks. I strongly encourage powered coating the wheels. Paint will just flake off over time.
I was thinking the same, but everything I’ve read online says the opposite for wheels. I’ve painted my truck wheels in the past, and they actually held up great through all of the off-roading I did with them.
Finally getting close to finalizing the wheels, but here’s a better look at the wheels. Still haven’t decided on whether I like them gloss or matte. Driver’s side is matte and the passenger’s side is gloss.
Apologies for the poor lighting and location. Just drove it around town and my normal spots were taken.
