Default My new Signature wheels! + Carbon 65 content

As many of you already know, and some wisely advised me, Khoa from Deity Motorsports is a great vendor here and when I reached out to inquire about their 18" forged wheel options he was very helpful and patient with all my questions over text and PM.

I went back and forth on designs, sizes, finishes, but I was always going back to the classic concave ten-spoke form. I just have always loved that look. And as for finishes, I do love the specialness of the brushed bronze tinted finish, but felt it was just not going to tie the rest of the car together properly. I have a Carbon 65 Grand Sport that obviously has factory carbon everywhere, and the brushed black tint finish has enough brownish hue to it, but not too much, that it matches the factory skirts, front lips, and roof nicely.

The other thing I've done which some may consider sacrilege (but hey, it's my car not yours) is to remove the Carbon 65 and blue hash mark decals. My whole car is PPF'ed but that's not the only reason to remove the decals - I feel they are too loud for me. I also have AP Racing/Essex BBK so I lost the factory candy blue calipers. I did really like the shade of metallic blue that the hash marks had, and the Ceramic Matrix Grey paint has some blue hue to it, and finally the interior has blue stitching everywhere. In light of all of that, I felt some blue was needed on the exterior to bring back the special look. When I was looking at the color swatches on Signature's website, I noticed that their Sapphire Blue looks a lot like the original Carbon 65 hash mark blue so for a very light touch, I asked Khoa if they could do just the center caps in that color and he said sure, no extra charge!

I love the way it came together. I have these 18's wrapped in NT01's (315/335 stagger). The widths are 11" and 12.5" for extra shoulder support in the rear without the risk of hitting the A-arm on full droop. I did also get the knurling option.

On to the pics!

Oh yeah. I plan on putting tension blue decal overlays on the red "SPORT" logo on the fender vent as the final subtle Carbon 65 touch. Would prefer the metallic blue finish but I can't find any vendors that make the decals in that color. Let me know if you're aware of any!

Nicely done. I'm totally with you on the big graphics they had on the side. I like the way you did yours way better. I saw one of these at Road America and the paint is so awesome. You have to see it in person. It's not something a camera can capture. The wheels looks great.

Oh it is! DSC sport, AP Racing w/ DS1.11, NT01 tires, and DSC alignment make for a confidence-inspiring platform. Now I just need to massively upgrade the driver!
