    I can answer that I have a set of c6 wheels i use on the street I use a spacer on the front to do just that, as my front wheels are 8.5 wide I run a 235 40 17 tire

    They are a standard three layer chrome application (Copper, Nickel, then Chrome) then the black chrome is applied on top of that.

    "Black Diamond Chrome is a finish which was developed in-house using a liquid based product and color compounded to the desired colors offered."

    They were done by Fast Forward Wheels in Cali last year.

    Sweet so when thet say "liquid base" does that mean a topical spray like paint or a electrical charged dipping process?? It adds a very factory custom look to your ride

    Don't know, the only thing they told me about the process is that it is baked on once it is applied.

    Well OHIO you were my influence on deciding on the Enkei KLAMP rims since they have the "hyper black" which looks very much like that black chrome. Looks just so damn good on a PBM!

    I run 235s in the front on both my street (stock) and my strip wheels. The's the original Monaro width so theres less of a chance with strut rub. I run 275s in back.

    I thought about running wider rear tires on my 17s but since they are my winter tires/wheels I will leave them as is. I ordered a pair of 275/35/18 BFG G-Force Sport for the rear as the KDW2s are almost down to the treadwear indicators.
