    I have the same exact Ruff 280 wheels on my Pewter Trans Am, but a question to you. How do you keep the lip so clean? Mine seem to get dirty way too quick. Does that happen to you?

    Your car getting nicer and nicer TWIN.Congrat to your good choice of wheels!!

    Without the wing the T/A looks like a different car, not sporty at all. What about your stripes, paint or vinyl?

    for a couple of days we had spring feeling, this ended up yesterday in a snow storm. Yippiekayey........

    Take care dear twin sister!!

    I went with 17x9.5 but I'm not 100% crazy about em...I want the lip like vikingramair's lol and the 18s have the deeper lip...seriously considering making the 3 hour drive and changing them out

    Thanks twin!! Yeah she looks goofy with no wing or mirrors lol.

    I decided I wanted to paint the stripes instead of decals - ended up being a pain in my @ss though because the red didnt come out as red so I'm having them repainted in Milano Red Pearl. Should be done by tuesday..I hope haha

    I like the wheels but I think the 18s look more BA so I'm thinking of driving to the other coast and changing them out...

    I had them red before, but decided to move back to black. Only stripes and front bird will be red for now.

    Compare red or black

    Well, when I wash my car, I wash the rims first then hose them off with water, then I wash the car. I wipe the car/wheels with a chamois and when all is dry I go over the rim lips with chrome polish. I think there are wheel cleaners with teflon now that don't harm the finish of the wheels. If you have ceramic brake pads, the dirt will just wash off with water.

    The wheels look good.

    be careful ordering anything from oe wheels. i ordered these wheels in black with no rivets, i got 18x10.5 all the way around, 2 came in damaged.

    i actually waited for the wheels to get off backorder for like 2 months because one of the sales reps looked up the wrong wheel, when i called to check on the back order, they were like oh we have those, i though you wanted these. even though i gave them a part number.

    needless to say, its been a major headache.

    they wanted to charge me for 2 wheels, then send the new ones out to me and a call tag to send the old ones back, but i dont have 300 laying in a bank account so this wasnt an option for me.

    i wound up having the wheels fixed instead.

    heres what i got in the mail:

    notice the similar placement?









    one that wasnt Fed up.



    i even got black lugs from them and like 4 were rusted...the paint was chipping off before i ever even got them.

    for the $$ you cant really complain to much, and i just had some bad luck. shit happens.

    but be aware, these are not the nicest wheels, the old saying: you get what you pay for, really applies here.


    im gonna be running 315/30/18s on the back and 295/30/18s on front. woot!
    good luck.

    I'm somewhat local (if you can call being on the opposite coast of FL local lol) so I was able to inspect the wheels before purchasing them which made my transaction a lot easier. Sucks that happened though, the guys there seemed pretty nice

    yeah, i recommend asking them to inspect and to extensively clarify everything you want/need and or assume.

    they just dont seem very organized, and when you sell imported stuff, bad things can happen.
