You have another thread about rims, are you getting them with an offset to equal what you have with the spacers now? (all rim, no spacers)
Yes, this is the plan :) but for the time being I decided to put spacers with stock rims to have a better view how it will be fit. It is much better than before.
I bought vogtland springs - 25mm and waiting for delivery.

My first plan before having FFS Was to create blacked out car with black rims, but the funny things is that black wheels look great with every color of the car but with black car those black wheels dissapear in the overall look. I still do not decide... We will see

Wojtas, I love your car so far, but I do agree. In my opinion the all black theme has no visual highlights to make the car “pop”. It’s got a lot of great details but you have to get up close and walk around to see them. Some flashy highlights catch the eye even if you’re just passing on the highway. I’ve been thinking lately I’ve taken my car too dark. I especially notice when I have my racing wheels on, which are machined finish. I’ve been considering some gold highlights for my Velvet Hammer.

For your Wolf, I was thinking that a wide matte black racing stripe with pin stripes on both sides in the same color you painted your calipers, and even possibly a rocker panel matte black stripe with one caliper colored pin stripe on top. I think it would be a subdued but unique treatment that could really make your car stand out.

I am with you 100% on purchasing "not black " wheels to contrast slightly with the black car . I feel the all black car is way overdone and shows very little imagination in customizing a car . You have done WAY too much excellent custom work on your FFS to have just be another impossible to keep clean blacked out car. I'm not a big fan of the bronze wheels and I would lean towards more towards a grey/gunmetal wheel but that choice is yours only . I agree with Shawnski on putting some custom detail items on it to make the car stand out from all others !

Hi Gyus,

thanks! I really appreciate it.
After all I am quite convinced that gray/gun metal will be the best choice. That is why I decided to stay with stock rims for a while. That is why I installed spacers and waiting for install vogtland springs.
Yesterday I spent some time to look for the wheels and found that there is a Summer Sale (-20%) for one of my dream wheels:
JR30 Hyper Gray. I did few quick visualisation and think it could be a perfect shoot.
I think this is the sign :)

Shawnski,

Thank you for kind words!
I need to think about it. I am not a huge fun of stripes, but... I need to consider.
On that stage it is all about working with "details" I do not want to screw up by doing something too much, however on the other hands I found this and looks damn good...

I have been thinking also about painting letters on tires in the same color of my calipers (something simillar to dark red)

That’s exactly what I had in mind! I was thinking a single, wide, matte black center stripe with the very dark red

pinstripes. It will be very subtle but also unique.

Stickers

I am still working on the stickers and cannot decide to final ones. I have few ideas in my minds and feel like a kid in a candy shop :).
I am most convince to fully black ones but also take into consideration the black with dark red.
