Picture is photoshopped... Wheels are CCW's.

Comments?? A little too Buick GNX? (no offense to GNX owners!)

A little too late '80's looking.
I would like to see somebody polish the V wheels.
That would look terrific.

Hey Dreamin - could I ask a favor?

Could you put the stock V wheels in gloss black on a V in a picture?

Just typing these posts taxes my computer abilities. I have to rely on the kindness and ability of others to get anything more complicated done. Thanks

I like them, though black wheels on a black car are a bit much. Silver or light-gray powder-coat would IMO be better. They look a lot like one of the Kinesis wheels.

All this polished/chrome junk floating around on the roads today is pretty ridiculous.

Black wheels can look great on the V just not those IMO. Polish and/or chrome wouldn't look bad either.

it would look better in real life than that picture.

you could also do those same ccw 3pieces in all polished finish.

either way would look great :coolgleam

I like the existing rims more than anything aftermarket I've seen thus far. Would only change for race purposes. The damn stock rims are pretty pricey themselves!

But the 2nd option looks a bit better than the first.

Dreamin - thanks for the picture. I hadn't envisioned the black spokes against the metallic brake disc would have the contrast that the picture shows.

I think I'll put the masking tape and Rustoleum away and stick with the stock wheels for now:D

I love the look of those black wheels (2nd photoshop one). But the caliper's stand out a little.

:rolleyes: I like the original V wheels. They look OK in black, but I think they might look best in a medium gray color.

I agree with the black wheels looking great. I think the color may be off just a bit.

I do think as far as stock wheels go the stock wheels are pretty nice, I usually do not like stock wheels on cars. I think with the V, we should have stock, high polish, and a blacked out look.

I was interested in those CCw's too, cuz I love black rims w/silver polished lips, but I think that design doesn't go well w/ the Cts' edgy modern design.

They look great on that vette and if you go to CCw's gallery they have a beautiful Orange Rx-7 w/them. I wonder if you could paint the 505a's and leave the lip silver?

The car doesn't look like my V. It looks slower.
