Default Atomic orange coupe with competition gray wheels?

I'm in the process of working out a trade with someone on the forum; my chrome five-spokers for his competition gray split-spokes. Before I go ahead with it, I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of what it'll look like. I have an '07 Atomic orange coupe. Help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

yours is chrome and cost you more than a grand option and you're trading it in for a painted gray ($400 option)?

After seeing the above pictures, I've decided that I only want the competition gray. As far as my chrome wheels being more expensive is concerned, that is correct. I bought the car used, though, so I didn't choose the chrome wheels. To me, chrome is too flashy. I'm looking for the more hardcore performance look.

Since the one trading away his / her competition gray wheels is getting a $1,000 option for free, I ask that they pay for the mounting and balancing fees. Other than that, you're home free.

The wheels have no imperfections, at all, period.

I agree 100%. I moved up from a 350Z with Rays wheels on it, that's the type of look I'm aiming for. I want to get my hands on some comp gray wheels, and then do some wheel spacers.

Here are a few pics. I'm very happy with mine. I went with CG's because AO is a bright color already and I didn't want people to look at the wheels first. The pics are in different light situations.

One thing I do like about them compared to chrome is that they don't look dirty as easy

All of the pictures have been a great help, they're all beautiful cars. Dcwp26, I'm sorry, as I'm sure it would have been a pleasure doing business with you, but I have my heart set on the competition gray wheels now.

Still looking to do this... Is there anywhere else, specifically, that I should try?
