Got momma some new wheels for her car. Custom Forgeline Forged wheels - 18X10.5 R 18X9.5 F offsets to fill fender wells. Powdercoated Pearl Gray. Turned out real nice I think. Took 6 weeks for them to make, but worth it.

Perfection of style and color. thumbsup

Added bonus is you can easily get a wash mitt on the barrel and keep them obsessively clean.

Nice choice!
I also went with a simple 5 spoke F Sport wheel for the Lexus.
So much easier to keep clean. I have a dark red metallic paint job, so the hyper silver is a nice contrast.

Also, you mention you had them made (assuming custom job)
Care to divulge the cost on a set like that?

Those look great. I would never do this as they would be curb rashed in a about a week.

Always been a fan of those. I remember back in '07 there was a Honda accessory wheel available called the Silver Star. They're still available new for $163 and are 17 inchers.

love a nice set of wheels for sure as they are. years ago i splurged for a set of Budnik Famoso's for my 72 cutlass, bought at york's street rod show like many high end wheels they are built to order. my buds were high polished + still look great on the car i sold locally, can't believe how high quality alum cleans up to a chrome like finish! expensive then, outrageous now!!
