Felix PLS have floss fill in all the recessed lettering on the face of the wheels in Yellow to match your car. Or even do it in Bronze / Gold.

If you do I will give you a chocolate bar.... !

Well done buddy your tastes are impeccable.

not sure if you said it but, what size tires are you planning to run? Surely you'll want a tiny bit of stretch for clearance issues but still enough meat to put power down on the streets

those tires are too small. I am running those in Nitto 555 on a 9.5 and 11" and it looks good just a little stretch, But you're .5" wider all around. You need to raise the car a little and run a 265/295 at least. You should be able to find a 305 that works too. It'll take some playing around w/ it. But raising the car a tad w/ the bigger wheels and tires will fill it out nice.

I suppose it all depends on the tire, I was running 215/40 on a 10 up front and 255/35 on an 11.5 rear on my old set up, then again i was running Hankook V12's and those didnt really allow for much stretch.

I'm sorry but a 215/40 on a 10" wheel is just wrong. Defeats any purpose and looks awful

like I said, depends on the tire, some 215/40s are much softer in the sidewall and stretch way more than other tire brands
