K

Here's a shot of the rims to stay on topic... the previous owner put 225/40/18 on both the front and the rear so the rear are super stretched...








I assume this is the "Sport Suspension"... can anyone verify by just looking? I am thinking about 19's and wondering how they will look without lowering.

Cheers!

Red and black chrome is such a good looking combo. Well done.

I had them done at a chrome shop in fresno called Wheel Creations...the place is a branch of a chromer in LA. I had to send my wheels in, so i was without a ride for about a week but definitely worth the wait.

Yes, they stripped them down and sent them through the chroming process.
and they charged me $150/wheel (not including mount and dismount of tires and rebalancing)
