Thumbs up

And to make things more exciting, I just received my wheels from Brixton! Blown away by the quality. I've owned 2 and 3 piece wheels before (volk/work) but I've never had a Monoblock. No seams or rough edges, just perfection.

I'm honestly at a loss for words. Color is called Anodized Bronze II. It almost looks black in shadows but turns to a nice bronze color in the light. The wheel design compliments this finish so nicely!

I should also mention i've weighed them and the fronts are around 22lbs and the rears are 23.

On a side note, they remind me of Mclaren P1 wheels!

They look beautiful! Will the Aston Martin cap fit? When will you put them on?

Thanks! I believe the AM caps will fit (although they won't match my finish so I won't be doing that).

I'm hoping to get these mounted with tires in early January.

Right now leaning towards Michelin SS or Continental DW.

Very nice car indeed. So you put the clear paint protection film on and then did the vinyl wrap right on top of that?


If you peel off the vinyl wrap won't it start yanking off the paint protection film also?

Sunir, I wrapped my mirrors over the clear bra and took the wrap, you would be surprised how strongly the clear bra is attached.

After redoing my mirrors 6+ times, the clear bra finally came off when i yanked the wrap off. And the clear bra only came off because the paint under the clear bra came off. The clear bra was still attached to the paint.

Ellipsis - this is looking amazing! I can't wait to see the new wheels on. Those look like an excellent choice and I love the finish on them. And thanks for the pm, much appreciated!

Sunir's an F-car owner now. He's gotta worry about stuff like this with those flaky Italians
