One of my favorite things about my wheels is how they're approximately the color of brake dust. So they never look dirty, just less shiny.

Took me over 8 years of ownership to find a wheel that I felt looked better than the OEM sport pack 5 spoke split wheels on a car as beautiful as the V8V. I have held on to those but now have the HRE P101's in brushed tint clear.

biggest change outside of the look of the wheel is the presence the car now has in person with the wheels all the way out to the fender and the lighter weight. OEM looked way to sunken in and less aggressive IMO.

That's what going through. I had the car for over 3 years now, keep buying used OEM wheels & trying the look. My issue is that beside the wheel pattern, what color to do? it has to go with Volcano red color car. Originally I had red calipers that didn't match volcano red, so got those painted black.(which looks way better than bright red) So far I think HRE P40's would look good, but It's hard for me to imagine, need to see on my car how they look. Any way still searching, I guess I have long way to Go

Your wheels look good with your car..
What size ? offset, tires- did you go with?

Sir, this is the best looking setup in stance and optics I know.

I love my Sport pack wheels and they were a must have when I was on the hunt for my Vantage.

When I ran across this pictures on google, they made me thinking of new shoes.
As a matter of fact I have both pictures saved on my phone as a reminder.

There's something about the offset and sidewall height in the back that doesn't look right. It looks like it could float or it's set up for an NHRA event. I bet those tires rubbed like crazy.

I have the same wheels and they are great hiding the dust. I find not needing to wash the car as often as I thought I would. On my XK, the wheels would be dusty looking 50 yards down the road after washing.
