Sadly putting them up for sale, $2700 pickup locally. I'll probably throw them up on CL and have a friend post them on Z-Atlanta's FB page too.

Thanks dude!

Just got some 15mm Z1 spacers in yesterday and the 22ple VM1 coming in today. Hope to have the wheels coated/sealed and installed by the end of next week

New wheels are on, as well as a 5mm larger spacer up front, and had the front raised up a bit. I think I'm going to have the lip, side skirts, and end caps repainted to Night Armor next (same color as door handles & hood latches). Also planning on going with a different the BBK once my SP1's sell and then paint those calipers as well.

Funny story... I was planning on coating them the Saturday before Labor Day, then having them installed the Tuesday after, well, on Saturday I pretty much spilled 90% of the bottle about 1/2 way into the first wheel. I ordered another bottle that day with 2 day shipping (arriving on Thursday) and rescheduled the install to Friday. As of this morning, I still haven't received the 2nd bottle, but the tracking does say it is expected to arrive sometime today. USPS FTL. Soooo the inner barrel of one of the back wheels is coated

I'm actually kind of surprised the people next door to us didn't call the cops right after I spilled it haha. Very true, and lesson learned as well.

Got my mirrors in

The plan is for the bases to be painted Magnetic Black and the mirror housings to get painted Silverstone. I'm going to see if they can skip painting over the Craft Square sticker on the underside of the mirrors though, so there's still a little carbon fiber showing.

Leave the CF alone.. Base would look good either way as long as the current base matches your car damn near perfect.. Of not black would be great

It's crazy how much wheels & tires have changed the look of your car. That's why they are, by far, my favorite upgrade. Still not on board with tire lettering but I'm glad you chose red instead of white.

I'm starting to lean that way, but I've got a couple months to make up my mind before going back to my body shop I think I'm pretty set on painting the bases magnetic black. Without any other silver on the car, I don't think they'll flow very well.

Thanks Eddie! They really have changed the whole look of the car. I think the MCR hood has changed the look as well, just not to the same extent as the wheels. I still go back and forth on the stickers. I'm about 1/2 way through my current tires, and thought I'd ***** myself out and get trendy for a few thousand miles
