Default Graphite/Gunmetal colored wheels on Moro!

As a follow up to my post yesterday about refinishing my wheels, here are the pics!









I think it looks pretty good with Moro...not too many Moro with dark wheels around here.

Default Now I see what you are talking about with the front ride height. Wheels look even better mounted!

Default Thanks. Yep. It's in the 30s in the morning now. Average low 50s now, sometimes high 40s.

Default Haha. I actually don't mind the 17s on there. Smoother and quieter ride compared to my

summer setup =D And no tram-lining!

Default I didn't know either how it would turn out. I've only seen one picture of a member here

with Anthracite BBS wheels on his Moro. I like the gunmetal on the Moro and will probably be re-finishing my VMR RS4s in this color as well.

Default Yep, I saw those pics too

Default Those winter tires are pretty soft, you're going to wear them down

quick on dry pavement with those temperatures.

Default Yeah, a little more wear than normal but cold enough in the mornings (30s)

Only time is my commute home is where it gets a bit warmer.

I'm use to wearing out tires...I go through a set of summer tires every 1-1.5 years.
