Anodizing aluminum white is extremely difficult (it is a multi-stage process and requires top-coats), and there is no consistency guarantee, so we don't do it. That being said, you could always use high temperature paint and paint them white afterwards.

You could also run the raised center cap style, leave everything black, and paint the inside circle white, that would look pretty cool, IMHO.

Those look great! I want to see the flat ones on a car from about 10 feet away.

I like them. I wish they were a little more of a gunmetal color though. I think the contrast between the wheel color and center cap is too great.

Hi Guys, Thanks for the feedback. We did try to match the colour, but we just couldn't do it. Pressed Graphite requires multiple base and clear coats, and we don't have the technology at the shop to do it. I've got a completely new appreciation for the colour on the SL - Rays did some amazing work to create this colour! We tried some different greys, but they didn't look great either. We figured black would provide some contrast, and IMHO it looks nice in person.

Anyone get the flat style ones yet? How's the quality and fit? Any issues with them coming loose while driving at high speed / aggressively?

Would appreciate any feedback from the early adopters.

Cheers and happy holidays!
