The new G2's are beautiful!!! I am loving them!! The full face design looks good and they fill out the wheel well perfectly.

They look so classy

The MSRP are $3900 so I am thinking we can find them for a couple hundred less .. You never pay MSRP for Volks!!

Chompino, what color are those? Also in the pics of your car in the SEMA thread, it looks like your car has matte black wheels on the other side. I couldn't tell because there's only 1 shot of the other side of your car. Either way, those wheels are sick, and your car is lookin good man!




In the pic below, are those 2 different colors for the G2, or the same color? I'm guessing it could be the angle making the 2nd and third wheel look darker, but my guess is that its a different color? Anyone know?

Thanks man! The color shown in that picture is called Formula Silver. I was surprised how good it looked on AW. I bet they will look amazing on other colors though.

Hmm, I know they had them in the Formula Silver and Flat Black, which are the first two wheels in that pic, but I'm not sure if there were other colors there. It's hard to tell what that 3rd wheel is.

I was told from Mackin that you can get them in any color that they produce... The catch is a 3 to 4 month turn around time.

I also asked about getting +22 offset with 19x9.5 19x10.5>>>>> They said No problem!!

+22 = Some nice concave !!

Damn, 3-4 months, Forged 360's are 8 week wait and that's long enough!

Yeah I know! Heres what happens since these are new wheels.. The put orders in and they make them on japan and then the sail across the pacific and sit at customs and then Mackin ships them out to the respected shops, and then they ship them to you... However hopefully in the futuer shops will order a couple of sets and keep them in inventory (at least the popular styles).

Somebody said he ordered T37s directly from Rays engineering in Japan. I went to their website, but could not find an email contact. Does anyone know anything about that?

Mackin is the Distributer for the US So you can call them but they will most likely refer you to a vendor unless you own your own shop and then you have to do a buy in xxx many set...

You may be able to call Japan directly but you will pay more not to include the high cost shipping..

Best option Have a military buddy thats stationed over there buy them for you and he can ship then to you using the US mail from his base, post, or camp.. Your not supposed to do this but once wont hurt..
