I always had my mind set on HRES until i started looking for some cheaper rims for the 350z, I came across the gunmetal volks with the polished lip, which looks really nice, I was wondering if anyone has any pictures of these or other gunmetal rims on a black supra, and if anyone knows the quality of Volks? I think I heard they were pretty good quality. Any other links,good prices or any other help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I saw those rims on a 350z at a car show a few months ago.. the Z was the darker silver color and I fell in love w/ those rims. Ever since then I was wondering how they would look on my black supra too, although after searching I have been unable to find a picture of them. Maybe someone will be kind enough to photoshop a set on a black dawg for us (I would but I suck w/ photoshop).

Some low quality pictures for you -





Had the Volks on for about 1000 miles. Never had a problem with them, fit and finish was excellent.

The Volks were gunmetal.

I've never been a big fan of Volks in general. I picked up the GT-Ns so I could get the car off jackstands, sold them about 8 months later, putting on less than 1000 miles.

The SF Challenges you posted aren't bad. Spokes are a little too thin for the Supra, but if you like them...by all means.

One thind I'd watch out for is the finish, gunmetal, or whatever it may be, flaking off around the lug nut area if you remove the wheels often.

Damn never heard of the problem w/ the gunmetal flaking off before. I am considering getting my stock wheels powdercoated to gunmetal b/c a Supra is a big expense for a 19 y/o's budget and a nice set of rims is a few grand and thats not really practical for me right now. I have done a search for powder coating the stock wheels, but would be interested in more pictures if anyone has this done to their MKIVs, that process is more realistic for my budget at the moment and I think the stock wheels would look good in gunmetal. There is a set in somone sig on here that I have seen before and they looked great on that car.

My old GT-C's. I had no problems with Volks, they seemed like a great wheel for the price... I just wanted bigger.

Gunmetal wheels look great on any color body IMO. Nice!
