Default New Wheels Wanted (There Here Page 2) !!!

Well,

I think it's about time for some new wheels for the ride. I just sent my CCW Sp500's to have chromed and they came back. I'm getting some blistering in the chrome so I'm trying to work out with Cal Chrome on how to resolve. Anyway, I've been thinking about new wheels for a while to give my car a new look so I'm hoping the photo shop gurus can help me out again. I'm going to stay with CCW as John has always taken real good care of me an they are offering a bunch of new options.

The two wheels I'm looking at are the SP16A and the Sp500. I'm really leaning toward the SP16A with a polished front and then having the inside barrels powder coated grey. The other option would be to have the 500 like I have done in black (center and barrel) and then leaving the lip polished. I'd really like to see how that would look.

Here are some pics of my ride and the wheels. The 500 may have to be photo shopped black in the middle.






Thanks,

Shane

I don't think you can lose with either choice.
