Default Pictures: New Black Wheels

Got a bit tired of the old saleen chrome wheels. Got a great deal on these 18 x 9.5 wheels. 285/35/18's all around. Vintage chrome spinners with custom mounts. What do you think?

Ive never seen a wheel set up like that on a S281. I typically like all black wheels but those spinners make it pretty cool and unique.

How did you get the spinners to mount? I cant quite tell, do you have chrome lugs also?

I give it 2 thumbs up!

The design of the wheel is such that the lugs are hidden behind a cover. The center cap spins on to hold the cover in place. Just a matter of attaching the spinner on the cap.

In the first picture, they look ok.
In the second one, I pretty much hate how it looks (you did ask, lol).

Keep in mind, i'm not much of a believer in switching out saleen exterior parts other than with other saleen parts.
If I were tired of the chrome, I would have just bought a set of new edge saleen replicas in black for like $450.

Never seen a set up like that. I have to be honest. They don't look bad but I like the chrome much better.

We all have our own taste when it comes to wheels! Drive around for awhile with them and give yourself a chance to adjust to them.
