    I have a set of silver RK's (dismounted in pic) and plasma RK's I switch back and forth from time to time. Neither are for sale. The plasmas are peeling so they're going to get the PVD process soon.

    So I installed my wheels today.
    Sealed them with 2 coats of C Quartz ceramic coating and I painted the rusty brake hats with some caliper paint.
    Installed some lfp spacers, however the hub of the spacer was a hair to big to fit into the bore of the wheels so I remedied that with some 80 grit around the hub of the spacer.
    Took it for a quick ride and all seems ok.
    My only concern is how far out the rear wheel is with the spacer. I'm not rolled and I'm running a 295-35 nitto. Seems a little to far out for comfort for me but I don't want to roll the fenders so after a more thorough test run I'll decide wether or not to continue running the spacer

    Some cell phone shots. It's a little dark but I couldn't resist taking some photos

    Does anyone know if this notch is running an IRS? The tailpipes look like it, but I can't afford to "guess" on this one. Thanks in advance!

    Those actually look like SRA flowmaster 3" tail pipes based on the weld where the exhaust goes from aluminized to polished stainless tip.
