Default Stock 19" 5 spokes in Hyper Black

This summer I decided to take care of some minor blemishes on my stock wheels and had them refurbished at Wheels America. They talked me into Hyper Black because I wanted something darker than stock silver but not all the way to black. This color also hides my brake dust.



I also added new tires. Bridgestone RE-11's in 285/35R19. I think this is the size these should come with. Original was 255/50R19. I increased tread width without changing the diameter so my speedo and odo are still correct. It filled out the wheels a little better.

Looks a lot better and the wider tires and lower profile will help at the track for sure. Nice job on the color too, won't be like any other ones out there

Thats a really cool color! I like how subtle of a change it was, but it goes a long way. If you don't mind my asking, how much did the refurb run you?

I believe it was about $100/rim at Wheels America. They're everywhere.
