Question

Front brake need to be changed..
So new front stoptech drilled&slotted rotors + pads ordered.

I make a little photoshop for choose my next wheels color..(work emotion xd9 in 18")
Your opinion about color?

(low+grey)

(low+white)


I plan to select following wheels sizes (with oem fenders) :
front 18x9 +30 (225/40/18)
rear 18x10 +38 (245/40/18)
Like says on the wheels threads..For the rear it's OK with stock fenders and for the front with stock fenders what is the best ? 18x9 +30 or maybe +38 ?
