They look great! Been thinking about powder coating my RACs black. I think I might do it after seeing your pics.

Damn, that setup is perfect. I've been thinking of getting my ZCP wheels painted black, and I think you just convinced me.

I'm lowered on B&G springs. I don't even rub with my summer setup which are wider and taller. Maybe your drop is too low or the Vredestein tires have more rubber than other brands?

What I mean is...do the spacers give the wheels a "tacked on" look if you're looking at the fitment between wheel & hub? Difficult to explain, hope you understand what I mean.

Anyways....car looks just great!!! And your winters, well I'm biased and love them.

Can't notice the spacers at all. They're painted black also which blends them in further. Get them you'll love it! Or if you're unsure get something more subtle like a 12/10mm setup. And if you don't like it they're easy to remove.

Man It seems like I keep following in your foot steps. Exact car color, same spacers, ZCP Wheels were the last thing I was going to get Powered coated.. and you already got it ..

So where you get it done and what it cost you?

Thanks

Love the setup. I'm on oem 220's for the winter. Thinking about the spacers but wondering if a locking lug nut is possible with spacers?

Now that is a nice winter setup! My ZCP wheels are my summer set (for now) and my winter set are the Forged 19s, style 220m on Blizzak LM-60, no spacers though. Good choice!

The setup looks awesome, but...

If you want to use your car in the winter, I would take off the spacers if for no other reason then less s*&t gets on your car during the winter. What do they use on the roads there in the wintertime, chemicals or salt or ??? In any case the less of that stuff ends up on your fender and the more that is inside your wheel well the better.

Great pictures! Great setup! I want my next car to look like this....
What's the durability of the painted wheels?

WTF people. This is hardly a winter setup. Yes, it looks awesome, but this car is not setup for any serious snow, gravel ice - the standard winter conditions.

Now if the OP has a 2nd winter car - I am 100% aligned. But if this is a sole winter mobile, this setup is FAR from optimal. Spacers will just cause rocks, sand, and salt to spray all over the car. Wide tires, although winters will struggle in snow and ice.

It does look great...
