No I don't have a pic...I have seen Gunmetal on a black car and it does look amazing though.

The thing is that I ordered Silver and this is what showed up. It was a bit of a shocker but it is a great color, just not what I ordered...heh

I would recomend a 245-45-18 or 255-45-18...275-40-18 in the rear if ya like as well...Just need airbag spring helpers or rolled fender lips to deal with the rub with the wider tires.

Yes $640 for the set shipped free anywhere in the lower48. Canadians get a $60 credit to help with freight & $120 with a wheel & tire package...

Install accessories are extra:

$45 Spline Lug set with remote socket
$20 Hubcentric Ring set
$25 Flush hidden valve set w/remote fill check stem tool.


Tire size recomendation would be 245-45-18 (26.7" tall) or 255-45-18 (27.1" tall).

Staggered tire set would be 245-45-18/275-40-18. Would need spring helper airbag set or rolled fender lips for the rears with this tire setup.

The Spline lugnut set is something I tried out myself and really liked for a few reasons. They are narrow and the remote socket that comes with them is a thin wall socket. So that all means that you will not me damaging the finish of the wheel inside the lug hole. You don't even have to be carefull...Also the remote socket is the only extra tool you need to remove the lugs because it fits lug wrench in your spare tire kit. The lugs act as a wheel lock because they are not a traditional style lug that will accept just any correct sized socket. Lastly they look good.

Fush Mount hidden valves...The valves are nice for a few reasons as well. And yes I also use these on my cars. They are flush mounted to the wheel so you don't have this thing sticking out of your wheel anymore. Nothing to hang up on the dry towel, washmit, wax applicator, etc...It also finishes the look of the wheel. I can't imagine anyone not being pleased with these things. There is a remote stem with a allen stlye tool on the end of it that removes the allen stud from the valve. You then install the remote stem to fill or remove air. So no more kids stealing your valve caps "If they even do that anymore ", and nobody can let air out of your tires via the valve either.

Hubcentric Rings....These are simply a ring that slips into the center of the wheel where it sits on the hub of your car. The wheels have a hub bore of 70.80MM and the rings bring that down to the tbird hub size being 63.90mm. These rings ensure for a centered torque on the wheel when you tighten them down. Without these about 99 times out of 100 you will have a vibration issue. IMO the rings are a must.

That sums it up...

Cheers,


Brad

I am not sure of the paint finish, only that it is a wheel class paint intended for a bit of abuse. With regard to holding up in Salt, they should hold up as well as a OEM wheel would. I would not recomend running any of these wheels in the winter though.

if you need wheels, go to brad. i bought a set of the ADR Kasai wheels w/245s on 'em for my 95 S/C, and they were shipped and arrived like a suprise gift! the lug nuts are great and not having that UGLY black valve stem on these clean wheels really makes a difference. just my $.02

i saw a set of Cobra R replicas on Ebay i would have bought if they fit my cat. the spokes were gloss black and the ring was either polished or silver ( don't remember which). But they were 4 lug.
Talk about some sexy rims !!!
