Nice, I like them! Loose the orange reflector and get tint and you'll be good to go.

Nice. Maybe I'm wrong but it looks like your directional rear tires are mounted backwards.

At first, I was a big fan of black wheels on AW. But the more I see them on AW, the less I'm a fan. The main reason is that the wheel looks like they disappear with black. No contract with tire/wheel. OP, have you thought about Gun Metal?

I saw these from another member's car, I think that's what I'm going with next.

You're right ...I realized it after I mounted all 4 that they were all backwards ... like a jackass I had to do them all again Oh well I should have been more diligent in the first place

I have an AW with Matte Black Wheels combo and thinking about it now, I'm still VERY happy with them, but to just be different, I might have gone with the Gun Metal color like you suggested. Both look great, though

EDIT: What member's car is that? I'd like to see more
