Red face Billet Specialties Street Lite - Gunmetal Centers

I recently picked up some BS Street Lites and decided to go with a gunmetal center for contrast. My preference was to powder coat but none of the local shops wanted to touch doing just the centers. The one shop that would, which recently did another set of wheels for me, wanted double the price so I went the paint route with a few coats of matte top/clear coat. I think they came out pretty well.

(*Also I know the door bumpers are ugly, I never took them off when I bought the car bc I'm in a tight garage, they work lol)

Thank you sir. I went with the 17x9.5 in the front and 17x11 rear. The tires are 275/40s in the front, 315/35s in the rear. No rubbing issues, however the car was running an 18x10.5 with a 315/30 in the past so I did beat the fenders in a little bit prior to that setup.

I was originally thinking about going to an 18/19 setup, I'm glad I went with 17s. I think they fit being a '98 car and the ride quality isn't bad.
