    98maro, not sure if you decided yet on the red lip or not, but i think it would look pretty good. Might make the wheels stand out a little more. I don't think it would clash too much with the calipers. Just my .02.

    Either way, your car looks really nice. I love the corners and the red calipers

    I forgot to mention or I think I did. On the lip. Is not paint. It's a decall. If I can call it like that.
    Motorcycles have them. If it doesn't look good I just take it off without messing up the paint.
    On the center caps. I Dnt think a decal would look good. Since the stock zo6 c5 rims cane painted. The design is on the cap. Just need to be painted.

    or you could wait until I get my pin striping tool and have it done right I would put a SS logo over the caps and if need be take them off down the road. What other color do you have on your car besides red and Black? I use silver on my car to make things pop like my bow tie on the front grill and under the hood[IMG][/IMG]

    wow.... a few things those oem wheels you could have sold for about 500 and bought ones already powder coated for about less than you sold those... you destroyed those wheels..... I think you should have gone with a more glossier look.... and YOU NEED A DROP >>>>BAD>>>>>> other wise the car looks good.

    thanks... i have the springs.. stranos i just need the shocks for the drop..


    dont take it personal but why everyone keep saying i messed em up? aftermarket rims cost more than $500 dollars and they are not even the same size.. plus i like i said before those rims can be painted again and no one will even notice about it..
    i guees i have luck cuz i bought them for $300 with tires and the ones i bought before i paid $300 no tires..
