Wheel Spacer Bolts

I would like to add 7MM spacers to the rear of my 2008 limited Boxster, can anyone tell me if either the RSS or GMP kits bolt finishes match the OEM silver? It appears that many kits come with chromed bolts and since I am not adding spacers to the front I would like the bolts to look similar.

I suspect that the bolts from either of those kits will have the same raw finish as the oem ones. As an inexpensive fix, you can use these covers . I did with my black wheels, and they look great . They can be found on Amazon or eBay for cheap .

Don't worry I've got the microfilm.

Thanks Danger,
I have decided to go with RSS 5MM (front) and 15MM (rear) spacers in black, should compliment the black rims of the Limited well.
Now I'm off to track down a good 19MM soft socket
