I love you guys, but I cannot bring myself to like these as much as the ARC-8's. You guys picked the best design for a wheel on that one.

Can't wait to see awesome set ups with these though!

wheel looks great, but why an exact copy of the bbs gt4? I loved that the arc-8 is unique and nothing looks like it. But this is an exact replica

The arc-8 is instantly recognizable though imo. The centers of the bbs rc looks alot different to me. I guess I shouldn't say "nothing looks like it", but you can tell right away

Nice! I like how it all comes together. I assume the customer was happy as well?

I will when I can clean and shine her good. It's cold, wet, and miserable here at the moment. Not conducive to good pictures.

Still no good pictures IMO but it's as good as I can get today given the vampires will be out at any moment now.

About the EC-7's, I like them a lot. I know that the VMR 710 look similar but the rim detail on VMR's is way too busy. This is clean and has a soft line around the rim where the spokes meet. Another thing I like about this look is the step lip angle is a little more shallow than some. This makes it a LOT easier to clean the wheel. The best thing though and what sold me on this wheel was the weight. I'm coming from M68's. These aren't as light as the M68's but they're also an inch bigger, better looking, and a lot easier to clean, believe it or not.
