Lighting is awkward so it doesn't do them justice.

Nice work! That color is perfect. Not a hyper silver look as the stock wheel and not a color that is so dark that the wheel loses it's detail.

Nice, they go well with the color. My wifes was going to get black, but since the tint has a slight metallic to it we are going to hyper black. I stick with paint though so they can be touched up.

^ I Agree, I was debating black since thats what I put on my GTO before the V. Didnt like that it lost the detail and blended with the tire so much. This I believe is a good compromise.

Looks good. I like to see them a tad bit darker. Eventually going to do mine on my Thunder gray. You plan on doing your calipers?

I cant decide on what color to do the calipers. I would love to powder coat them. This stealth gray doesnt give me any good ideas on colors. if it was a black or red car, red calipers would be nice but cant envision red or yellow on stealth gray

More pics please!

Agreed that calipers need to be done. Maybe like the zr1 blue? See if someone will photoshop some different colors on there and see what you like best.

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!

/\ STS-V wheel package on the CTS-V. clear STS fogs & sides. should of been a factory option haha

is that an aftermarket grill? the top fitment looks off. I like to crest delete thou.. i bet the only people who would notice would be another :v: owner hahah

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

wheels are holding up well. been thru rain and still have a shine to them. Good choice in my opinion

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.101056

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.

Thanks! Yeah, I really like the 19x9.5 rear wheels...I'm running 5mm spacers all around and 245/40's up front, 275/30's in the back...I'll probably go 285 though when I have to replace them.
