VMR 710 - Solar Black from Pyspeed.com - Cloudy Day Pics

It has finally stopped raining, but still no sunny day pictures of my new VMR 710 wheels. These cloudy day pics came out pretty good too.

The color is called "Solar Black" and is an exclusive powder coated color from Pyspeed.com. It is a slightly shiner version of matte black. Talk to Eric if you are interested. He's a great guy with excellent customer service.

VMR 710 - Solar Black
Front: 19 x 8.5 ET20
Rear: 19 x 9.5 ET22

I'm using a tire shiner made by Wheel Wax called Extreme Black I got from EAS. It is in the form of a light green gel-like liquid (more liquid than gel). It is the best tire shiner I've ever used. The shine lasts a long time and is deep and dark. It also is not greasy and messy and does not fling up on the car when you drive.















Front Wheel - Flush


Rear Wheel - Flush. You guys like my scooter? Just kidding, it's not mine.

Not sure if I follow what you said...

EDIT: Oh I understand now. You're talking about that black 645 in the background.

The car is looking really good. You should throw on a Ericsson trunk.

JL-Motoring front lip fits like a glove. JL-Motoring rear diffuser fits pretty good for the price. It will take some work (using epoxy) and three people to get it to fit properly. I have a DIY on installing the JL-Motoring rear diffuser.

The car is not lowered. It's on the stock suspension and the original PS2 tires. It may look lowered because the JL front lip really decreases your ground clearance by a good 2" in some areas and up to 3" in other areas.

Tell you guys honestly, no pictures we saw so far do justice to these solar black yet. (Frank can tell you this too) Really wish all of you can see it in person.

Thanks for all the support, you guys rock too! =)
