Question Need advice on what finish Torques for my white STI

Update - So, I think I finally decided (over a year later) to go with 17x9 Torque R's in a dark color.. now I'm not sure if I want Flat Black, Yamaha (Gloss) Black, Gunmetal, or Hyper Black.. Help me decide nasioc!

___________________


Thinking about picking up some 17" Rota Torques for my '06 Aspen White STi.

[I know they are played out.. but thats because they look damn good on our cars!]

Just can't decide on what color..

Flat black, Full royal sport bronze, gun metal, hyper black, anything else??

All the options can be found here near the bottom

yeah i think you can.. but im not a big fan of white wheels. hard to clean and can sometimes look tacky. but thats also what i thought about gold wheels... so im up for anything i guess.

heres a quick photoshop of the full royal sport bronze..


and black.. kinda..


eh.. plannin on a slight drop to with some RCE springs. im thinking 18's with the rce blacks or 17's with rce yellows. i like how 17s hug the brembos though

thnx again dude

the tires are 245/40/17's
I bought alot of other stuff with the wheels and tires but hit up Subydude about a package deal, it really is the best you can get wheels, tires, hub ring, mounted and balanced, you can package lug nuts with it. Open the box and ready to go pretty much, but hit him up about pricing details.

I just got my H&R rear camber bolts in so its getting aligned tomorrow and re-stanced

Ya dude the White on white looks siiiick, wonder how hard it is to keep clean tho?

Yamaha Black is a gloss black color and as others have mentioned Hyper Black is more of a black chrome. Hyper Black is pretty neat as the wheel starts off with a black base layer and then a silver layer is applied over. The wheel almost looks polished with direct sunlight but with little light it has a black tint to it.

Here's a shot of a recent batch of Torque's in Hyper Black



and you can view 400+ images of the various Torque's in our gallery
