I ordered my TSW Cray Brickyards for the Vette. Not a chrome kinda guy. Gotta have Black rims on a Black Vette.
Anyone in the market for a set of Chrome 18"-19" Wheels.
I see them on ebay for $1400 a set.
I will let them go to the first $1000 if you pay shipping.
Any takers???????????

please a full on side shot...looks very nice...exactly what I was envisioning for the caliper reveal....

my machined face bricks are about 3 weeks away...how can you beat a semi forged wheel weighing 21-24 lbs for $1800 (or so) a set....I ran into a guy the other day that had HRE black wheels that were 12 THOUSAND! (TIRES INCLUDED)

These are the stock tires.
P245/40R18 Front
P285/35R19 Rear
The wider wheel pushed the sidewall out slightly, but I was assured by the installer (Les Schwab) that there would be no issues with ride, wear or performance.
The wheels are also out further than the stock ones were, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
I haven't seen or felt any difference with the car but it gets even more attention from the public than before.

Went from 10" to 10.5" on the rear but went from 8.5" to 9.5" on the front.
They look a little stretched, but I can deal with it since I didn't have to shell out another $2K for new tires too.
I will put 295 to 305s on the rear and 265 to 275s on the front when I replace the tires.

glen e,
You have the Nurburgings on your car now. Are you now happy with them. I wanted to go with them but they are not available in black. Only Gunmetal Gray.

so have them powdercoated black for about $400 ....I love em... nurb's get so many comments - they are a class move..and so much cheaper than the big dog wheels that are outrageous priced...even with the extra powdercoat charge

Awesome look. These wheel's color go so well with the car. Perfect match.

Couldn't weight them yesterday scale was broken, but gotta be 22-25, honestly they are light. Had another customer hold one out arms length and he was not straining at all

Glen; They do look like they were really light. Easy on the eyes too! A nice example of less is more...
