    The pic of the blue calipers are on my V...I was looking to do something closer to the ZR1 color, but I couldn't find the right paint code. Sorry about the pic, it is an overcast day here...I LOVE the anthracite color of your wheels though...might do that color also. Looking good man!

    It is an Ebay special! Fitment is better than my OEM grille except that top part. I just liked the look without the crest and didnt want the indention from factory grille. bottom grille now needs to be re-painted

    i hear ya, just a thought, get some fat & flat vynal or rubber weather stripping with an adhesive back. home depot/lowes stuff.. run it along the edge to cap off the ebay grill. then repay the whole thing.. the grill just need some more material up top to complete the look.. let us know how it looks wit brakedust.. if you still like them when they are dogdirty you got yourself a winner..

    I have an issue where I wash my car too often, so I doubt i will ever see enough on the wheels. I will try and wait more than a week and report back

    The wheels look great. You may want to consider sealing your wheels with OptiCoat, cQuartz, HD Nitro Seal, or similar product.

    That color on those wheels should've been an option from the factory.

    Awesome!

    Wheels look great. Here is a picture of my rotors which I had powder coated in a color called Blue Chrome. It changes color with the light, going from silver blue to blue. You might consider it for the brakes.photo330.jpg

    Hey now, that looks great^. I just spent the time and money with my calipers off by replacing rotors and all fluid so it would be a while before I would want to take those back off to get color. This is a good idea tho.

    Nice, you're only the 3rd (including myself) I've seen with STS-V wheels. What spacers are you running? and what size tire is that on the rear? My 275/35/19's match up pretty well with the 245/45's up front. They're nearly the same diameter and doesn't bother me too much with their difference in profile.
