Those gold RPF-1s look so sweet... i've been thinking about getting a set
for the longest time. personally i'd do black lugs, but if i had to choose
between red & gold on a black car, i think i'd go with the red,
just to add a little splash of bold color.

Thanks. Same, the Enkei logo is red and the valve stems that we're installed we're also red. And I think they'd match up with the calipers too :)

I decided to go with the McGard Red Cap lugs.


I like'm and they match up with the valve stem really well.

as i scrolled down...seeing the pics of your car and not really paying attention (lost in my own mind) i thought to myself...."why does he have a pic of my car in his thread?" then it all clicked. :lol:


looks really good. the red lugs and the red calipers set the whole combo off.

Haha, thanks George. Now I'm debating if I should powder coat my old wheels, which will be my dailies when I get new tires for them, gold as well. I checked out the older pics with the old wheels and I do like them in grey, but gold would look awesome too. Maybe?

New Street Tires
Got a set of street tires for my old wheels and am now using those as not to trash the RS-3s. Kumho Ecsta AST 225/45/17. Man, going from sticky tires to these is kinda fun, easy to get sideways.


Really thinking about powdercoating these wheels gold...

When I said spats, I meant front spats!!! Off a JDM WRX. I'll have to drill into my bumper cover when I get the chance, but here's me holding it lol:

are those specific to that ver bumper? or are they one that might be able to be adapted to the ver5/6?
They are specific to the ver 1-4 bumper, but I have seen 1 that was modded to fit the ver5/6 on this forum. It was a red car I saw it last week when I was looking for lip pictures, but can't seem to find it now.
