Finally installed powder coated 18s

I just installed them yesterday. Forgive the dirty car. It should get a good detailing in the next week or so. I'll post up more pics when it's cleaned up if anyone is interested.

Those look great. It makes me want to pick up another set and keep it in the garage for whenever I feel like sporting the stockers again.

Agreed!!!! This is the number one reason I bought aftermarket ones. I couldn't justify the cost of widening and powder coating. I may reconsider this now.

OEM 18s are still one of the nicest looking wheels on the GTO. The powder coating color looks awesome on your car.

Thanks for the kind words. When I had them coated I was a little worried that they were going to be too dark, but I'm really happy with them. It's crazy how much it changes the look of the car.
