How hard is it to get in there to keep them clean? How difficult was putting the vinyl on? Did you use a long strip and run it around?

I got them from getyourwheels.com. Ask for Eric if you call.
I paid about $1600 shipped, which includes the cost to powder coat them in satin gunmetal.
btw the wheels come with silver inserts, which were taken off before powdercoating. I then replaced them with 3M reflective red vinyl.

The openings between the spokes are big so reaching in there is not a problem...

Putting the vinyl on wasn't too hard since they're only stickers. Cutting them out was a tedious job however, because each wheel contains 11 small strips. I used the original silver stickers as a template, then cut each one out by hand using an exacto knife. You can get a vinyl shop to cut them out with a machine if you don't want to DIY.

*I finally finished working on my custom centercaps. They were done in real carbon fiber with the Chevy logos on top. They look really good I'll take some pics when I have a chance.

Here are a couple close-up shots of my wheels:

Knight Rider,

Very cool! I couldn't tell in the first pictures that the 3M film was broken into sections and was wondering how you were able to make it go around the entire wheel with no seams - it makes much more sense now! I really like what you did - just need to start saving up and convincing the wife of the need to upgrade. Thank you!

Chad

The wheels I put on are the TSW Strip - Gloss Black. Staggered 20" with a 3.25" back lip. I was hoping to get a modern muscle look. I wasn't quite sure how it would look but it turned out exactly how I imagined. There's a couple things I'll be installing here shortly and I'll be sure to post pics for your guy's input. Phastek has a lot of cool options..
