Midnight Silver 20" wheels, tires, sensors
I have a full set of 4 with 800 miles, and no abuse (no burnouts). It'd be great to sell as a set, but I'd sell all 4 tires and all 4 wheels as 2 separate packages, or if enough folks chime in and want a front wheel, a rear tire, etc... then I will sell/ship individually.

ok. I didn't know how to post pics, but figured it out. If you want/need others just let me know.


Camarofan69 12-13-2009 04:47 PM

ok now lets see the wheels you replaced these with.

how much just for the wheels and sensors?

I'd take $800 for all the wheels and sensors, plus shipping. I replaced them with what I thought the Midnight silver wheels should have looked like. let me know what you guys think of the "new" wheel.


Camarofan69 12-13-2009 05:16 PM

i like the darker ones myself.

whats funny is thats why i was thinking of buying another set. i was going to powder coat them a darker grey. just like yours.

novocaine 12-13-2009 06:14 PM

it looks good
mine are a color called "silver vein". It's got a little texture to it. Kind of looks like cast iron, actually. I was disappointed the midnight silver was so light. It's not that different from the painted silver or the polished. Kind of lame they made all their factory colors so similar.

Those do look nice. Paint or powder coat??

novocaine 12-13-2009 07:23 PM

they are powder coated.

novocaine 12-13-2009 07:23 PM

they look really good in person. better than the pics

Looks nice! Like the darker color much better. I was also kind of bummed when I saw how light the midnight silver wheels were. Looks alot darker on the chevy web site.

Mine are being powder coated at this point. Sucks to have the car on Stands too. I am going flat black but that dark grey looks awesome. I think I will leave the center cap and lugs silver like yours I like it. Great Job man!!

Can I have my MS rims powder coated like that? Sorry for being such a moron on this. I've never had a car that I wanted to mod. All of my cars have been strictly for getting from A to B.

Anyway, where/who did you have powder coat those novocaine? I would like to have my CGMs MS rims coated to look like yours. That color looks sweet on your CGM.

How well does that wear after a few thousand miles?

novocaine 12-15-2009 05:33 PM

Powder coating lasts quite a long time. my racing ATV has it's frame and many parts powder coated. If it holds up in the extreme dirt racing environment, it'll hold up on the street.

I had a local shop do mine. If there isn't one where you are, you can ship them to a facility to do it. I had mine done at Custom Coat in Pasco, WA. John is the guy I talked to.

The color is Silver Vein. It looks EXACTLY like what I wanted. I can take some better close-ups if anybody wants. it looks so mean on my car!

Darth_Emma 12-15-2009 06:59 PM

I am going to get a shop to paint hood spears on my car when I get it. Do most paint places do rims too? If I tell them to use "Silver Vein" will they know what I'm talking about, or do you have a brand name for that Silver Vein powder coating? Thanks for your help. I love the look of those wheels on your car.

novocaine 12-16-2009 01:00 PM

not sure
I am not sure what brand of powder they used, but if you tell your shop "silver vein" they should have some idea. If not call 509-542-9431. Ask for John, tell him you saw the wheels on Trevor's camaro and wondered what brand of powder it was. If you don't have a local shop, ship to him and he'll do em.

On a side note for some of you..... please don't insult me by making pathetic low-ball offers on here. I know you are looking for a deal, but I assure you I am not going to give away the tires/wheels. Go price out some new ones, then ask yourself if you want to pay over $1500 just for the stupid tires for this car. If you are serious, and have an offer that is close I'll consider it.



Darth_Emma 12-16-2009 03:11 PM

Thanks for the information. I should have my car in about a month and I will be having this done sometime soon after I get it. I love what you have done with your wheels. Very classy.
