Default Wheel guys unite, need some Rays info

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out some info on this set of TE37's I've got... Supposedly they are a very rare color (no it's not Mag Blue)

I'm trying to find out how rare they might be, just a production number is really want i'm after... 40 sets? 70 sets? something...



Yeah, they were that beat up when I got them...



Had to file every lip...



almost done...



The players, and no I only lost about 3/8" of red when the tires were mounted and only in 1 spot..



Finished..



So, can anyone help a Subie brotha out??

TIA,

Aaron..

They are not Gun Blue my GB's look more like a gunmetal but with a blue-ish tint. 57 Motorsport wheels that are also made by Rays has a wheel that is winning blue and that looks about the same. You may have got a Rays prototye or some custom test color. It's hard to telll with the lighting but on the web site the darker picture looks really close.

On there web site they look darker but in that picture it's light so I looked them up on tirerack and they look more like my Gun Blue, so I don't know maybe they were just powder coated or they were a test color. Anyway sick wheels and car.

Volks can be special-ordered in ANY color, if you are willing to pay and wait long enough. So it's quite possible these were the only ones made in this color.
