I thought about Gunmetal, but my Ralliart wheels are gunmetal, I know they look good, but wanted something different...

Dont think i saw coreys... Dont want to powder coat them right now cuz they've already got tires on them and it'd be a pain to go through all that... maybe later on down the road I'll blast them and then powder coat them...

but yeah.....time attack waht ever they call the black with red lip.

after looking at some more photos I would have to say the gold and bronze look like dodo on your car.

I think the Bronze looks the best.

Gives it a subtle & aggressive look.
