Maybe do centers in anthracite.

Hard to imagine what it would look like with dark centers. I'm generally not a big fan of wheels with thin spokes (too much air not enough metal).

More an issue of the kind of metal. These are forged centers.

Make my Stoptech BBK look better when I put it on

I may paint the centers Avus blue.... Waiting to get a p shop of it from a buddy.

With a BBK sure. I'm slowly becoming a fan of white cars with coloured wheels. If I curb another wheel (right now only one has small rash) I might paint them metallic red.

Alpine White unite!

mikebeamin44 - 10 inch wide wheels can work with some camber, slightly stretched tires (245ish), and rolled fenders.

The inside barrels are pretty thin outside lips are beefy... I would not pay a lot for them in case I bend one.. Break an inside barrel may not be able to get another one...

I thought about reding the centers in either , silver, anthacite, or Avus Blue...

The blue would look diffrent just not sure if it would look good or not...

The semi solid forged centers are strong, the barrels not so much. I love SSR GT3s, had some 20 X 10.5 squared on my FX45 with 295s. Never had any trouble with them, but then again the fatty sidewalls made it easier on the barrels.

Mine were factory original gunmetal centers (new from tirerack) and I thought they looked fantastic.

Post pics when you refinish and mount them please.

Hmm.. Yep those barrels looked THIN! Like old school BBS thin...

I think anthracite will be the color.

Will do!

I may just say F it... and get some Hard Motorsport rivet on flares, for some reason I like the look with black rivets, put 255's up front and 275's out back just for looks... Not like even the 3.0 will need that much tire Until I turbo it anyway harr harr harr..
