Wow!!! I posted polish the lips on my F-Sport wheels or not & I got 85.71% dont polish out the wheels. My wheels are not black but very dark & a solid color. But most of the opinions say im in that group of solid black.

That's my car. Those are 18s off of a 08 IS350. I think it looks pretty good, here are some more shots of it. If I didn't have those I would probably rock black centers with a polished lip.

Thanks! That paint isn't actually the oem Platinum silver but an oem Mitsubishi Cool Silver. It's close the same but it's not so blueish and has bigger "glitter size".

Nowadays with black theme. Window Tint, black chromed front lights and black chrome rear emblems. Lower sections of 94-96 tail lights tinted mildly and side blinkers too.




Next thing is to finish and paint those replica Vertex sides and rear. Planning to make bigger front lip that flows with Vertex sides. Inspiration is Wise front lip.

18" wheels will be a bit too small with Vertex sides. It will scrape...badly.
