Got My One-Off Wheels On Finally!!!

Got my custom 20"s a week ago... they may look familiar, they are my old wheels, with the following custom touches

-Custom "mirror black" powder coat
-Machined Lip ("zinik" emblem left black)
-Custom one off metal smoothed centercaps (got rid of the manufacturers emblem from the cap when making the aluminum ones) did these cause you cant powdercoat the original plastic ones, so we made new ones. Lemme know what you guys think. the pics dont do it justice... now i know alot of guys dont like black wheels, but these are gonna look killer....



These pictures show my initails engraved in the centercaps... sortof





lemme know what you guys think...

PJ, how do you like those lambo doors? are they still on the car.

Not a big fan of black rims, but these might turn me into one. The polished lip really sets them off. Looks nice and clean..nice job.

I'd say they are Z7 Adrian's. I love black wheels with a polished lip.

no way man, black can be overdone. just because you have black rims and black paint, dosnt mean its good to black headlights and tails and windows at 2%.


too much black looks nasty.

rims

no more black. tryed the blacked out headlights/taillights, and i didnt like it

rims were 2400 new with tires like a year and a half ago. powdercoating/polishing/one off centercaps is worth about a grand.

thanks for the kind words, and yes, the car is most defiantely bagged...lol
