+1. Nice colors (or more precisely, achromatics).

Thanks guys, these are actually not the original colors. This is how they looked when I first ordered them from HRE before I sent them back for the Charcoal switch.

for the original wheels, what exactly prompted the change? Im thinking myself of going with the interlagos matched lip with gloss black centers. Now that Ive seen your pictures im not 100% sure i like the interlagos matched lips.

Hey Boost,

First I would like to save you the phone call to the dealer, your paint code is A30

When I first received the wheels with blue lips matte black inners and matte black centers, I began drooling immediately and could not wait to wrap em and put them on the car. In hindsight the only time I would ever do this would be if the car was hardly ever driven because just like the paint on the car overtime you develop swirl marks, and it chips easily. If there was a way to do a powder clear over car paint I think it would have made a big difference but after cleaning them weekly after a year the lips looked like they were a few years old. If I had to do it all over again I would have probably done the centers Interlogos Blue and the lips Matte Black. I would not do gloss black because gloss black shows every little imperfection 10x more than any other finish. I am really happy with the charcoal. I think next time I send them back I will reverse it up and do gloss charcoal on the centers and Satin Charcoal on the lips.

Also a side note, these lips are 5.5 inches in the rear, if you do blue on the lips, be prepared for a lot of blue lol

Which wheel were you thinking of doing?

The HRE 790R is one of my favorite wheel designs. Too bad my wallet disagrees with me.

790R = drool

Think it would have looked sicker with a polished lip, but definitely huge improvement over the blue lips! Very nice!

Thought HRE's can't be discounted. If you mean you may consider selling your set, please let me know

Authorized dealers can do up to a certain percentage on new wheels. But I definately have some options for you. Feel free to send me an email to mkrisel@gmpperformance.com and maybe we can work something out and get your car hooked up with a set of wheels
