New look for these SS wheels!

I know these wheels don't get much love around here, but I've always liked 'em. After seeing the '10-'12 style wheels available in black/silver, it got me to wondering what it would look like on the '13-'15 style. Well, here it is. I think it looks so much better than one solid color. It's reminiscent of the '69 SS wheel IMO.

That came out looking pretty good! I like the way the newer SS wheels look on the earlier SS models. This black out treatment on the midnight silver wheels would be awesome!

So you mean instead of the machined face, just paint the recessed areas black and leave the midnight silver on the face? Never thought about that! Might look good!

No, they're powdercoated. They did the black first, machined the face, and then a gloss clear coat over everything. I love the look, but the place that did them took so long (I wondered if I was even going to get them back) that I ended up getting a set of MRR M228s. Not sure what I'll do with these now!

They look a lot like Keystone Klassics from the 70’s. Nice look.
