Suncoast had a sale before on 918 wheels and someone had a thread going about it.

With the new Mustang GT350R having carbon fiber wheels I'm curious as to what those will cost to buy separately. For the cost of these wheels you can buy alot car! Even 1 percenter will choke. It takes 1% of the 1% money to not flinch. Crazy.

What size spacers do I need to mount these to my 97 tip project boxster. Need something to put on order while I install my butterfly door mod.

Damn. They only come in black.

Do you think it would be ok to Plasti Dip them to silver?

Center locks and Center caps not included....really? Those are an additional $630 and $200, respectively.

Then again, if you go with percentages, $56k on a million dollar car is no different than spending $1,000 on wheels for an $18,000 used boxster.
