I'm going to go with 17x9.5 on mine.. Answers my question of whether or not I'll have to roll the fenders. How much did you lower the car?

I like this thread. I can't pull the trigger on some white torques. Gold doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe bronze. Arghhhhhh

If youre on the fence about a certain color, esp black, i recommend plastidip. If you put a thick enough layer it will peel off easily. And at about $7 a wheel you cant go wrong for a reversible finish.

Black plastidip WITH the silver Metalizer. Do the Metalizer last and sparingly and it looks awesome.

Can you get a close up pic of the tires to the fenders? Also what camber are you running?

Default Pink or Red?

I had done my wife's pink a few months ago and now changed them to red. I also wrote a fairly detailed how-to on plasti dipping. Good clean fun for your winter wheels.

+1. The stock silver wheels look great on DGM, IMO. However, Hyper black looks really good too. I'm torn on just buying proper spacers for the stock wheels to get them more flush or picking up a set of hyper black wheels with a more aggressive offset that fills the fenders a bit more for summer.

Decisions decisions...

+2 for silver - I wish I also had a set of gunmetal rpf1's, next best color
