Default Poll: Black w/ Chrome Lip or Chrome

Edit: Pics are big to show detail of rims, will resize if requested.

These will be going on a silver PT with a set of Gold Line 2.75"/3.25" springs.

That's what I'm leaning towards as well.. they're a bit cheaper in price, and I think the chrome with my silver paint will look a bit too 'ricey', know what I mean?

I wish they made the old school cragers in a 16 inch wheel that had the right spacing and did not cost over $200 each they would look so cool on a PT

To give you a frame of reference, here's two of mine, one with the stock chromies, one with the new black with polished machined lip....course it was dirty as original and the after also includes a drop, but you can see how the black looks on a silver pt...





Another Before shot:



Full view of it's sexiness after all the work was done...



Now I went black to tie into the look of the rag top, not sure how that will look on a sedan, but if you tint your windows dark, the black throws off very well that you've got it on a silver car...

IMO, you can go either way, that's the good thing about a silver PT, works both ways...oh that didn't come out right..lol...

I met here in NC with the regional Crager rep, man I wanted those old school 5 spokes so bad. He and I worked with Discount Tire to factor in all the dimensions and to try to come up with options that would work. At the end of the day, if I hadn't lowered my PT and was willing to shave my front calipers I could fit some on. As it stands now, dropped like it is, there was no workable solution. He promised to take that info back to Crager corporate and see about releasing some 16" and 17" wheels with a .40 offset at 5x100. IF they do come out, they will be about $189 each. Not sure it's going to happen and he said he wouldn't know before January.

Thumbs up Re: Poll: Black w/ Chrome Lip or Chrome

I'm agreeing with Chromenut about the dark tint. That black has some gloss in it, and with a nice glaring dark tint, they will be pretty sick! If you want to go the next step(which I haven't seen yet), then put a chrome strip around the windows(the rubber strips) and it would IMO match the chrome lips. Just a thought
