funny - i went to TireRack trying to remember where i got my wheels and they offer the AS1 with a black center now!the wheels look great, especially the darker center I like it!. Now you got me thinkin if these wheels would look good on my SC if I could somehow reuse the stock tires...hrm. Out of stock from tirerack but not a bad price for 18" wheels. Like the drop too, I only wish ground control would come out with some coilovers for the SC I would be all over it.
I really like those ASA's on your SOP. Origionally, black BBS style wheels were going on the E two years ago. Now, you have inspired me to sell the current wheels and buy some similar wheels that are sitting on the shelf locally. They are called Akita AK-6 and are available in black too. However these are silver with a polished lip. Plan on painting the centers NBP.
I had a little fun quickly cropping your wheels on my car.
1st pic current wheels and I dont like them
2nd pic your wheels and I love them
How hard was it to paint them?
Do you have pics of the silver AR1's on your E?
