Not exactly what you were looking for, but pretty close. These are our wheels in Gunmetal, which will be lighter and have a more chrome-like finish.





I'll have to dig around to find some other pictures to post up.

BTW thanks for posting the style, i totally forgot what offset was

FRONT: 18x8.0 ET34
REAR: 18x8.5 ET37

What does your ABS and/or traction control think about the different wheel diameters fore and aft?
