SRT Max Steel or Granite?

Just want some opinions on color here. I know it's to each it's own but love the opinions on why. I've owned 5 WK2's. 2 SRT models I had were white & Billet. I have owned a Granite & Max Altitude also. But those colors in an SRT must be different. What do you think?

Re: SRT Max Steel or Granite?

I too had a tough choice between GC and max steel. The GC needs blacked out trim at a minimum to look good in my opinion. The max steel looked good all-around, but I also haven't seen my GC with the black chrome wheels yet so my opinion may change.

I think I made the right choice, but I've always been fond of blue. The max steel is definitely more unique too. I've probably been of no help. Flip a coin, and whichever color you think of when it's flying in the air, that's what you truly want

It was a help, thanks. I love blue. And on top of it the Max is discontinued in 17 also. You chose max, any pics?

Re: SRT Max Steel or Granite?

I had to make this decision without ever seeing either of them. I work overseas in Italy at a military base. I had friends going to dealers and taking pics to send me. I was really stumped and changed my order 3 times. A good friend who is also a car guy and I trust his opinion said to me " they are both nice, but trust me you will love the uniqueness of the Max Steel". I am really happy that I went with the max steel. Mine is blacked out and on RM mids with 22" WK1 reproductions. I am very happy, but sure the granite is nice too. Over here in EU the max steel is available so my girl "Maxene" (see what i did there with her name? LOL) gets a LOT of attention, and people often ask me "what color is that? Its amazing!"

Here is the link to my girls transformation:

Re: SRT Max Steel or Granite?

I was between three colors, two of them being the ones you mentioned. In the end I went Max Steel as it was so different than anything out on the road.

The paint has so many different shades when close up, and Lankness shared his Max Steel album which sold me. (I'll ask for him to share it as I don't want to share someone else's pics unless they are ok with it).

Also, the black rims look phenomenal on Max Steel per your earlier question.

Re: SRT Max Steel or Granite?

Pictures of Max Steel? I have the billet silver that you have already had. I love the forgiveness of the color and it looks good! I have a black Viper,GMC Sierra and GSX-R 1000 so the color change is welcomed!

Re: SRT Max Steel or Granite?

I was trying to choose between the same colors. The Max Steel was very hard to find in Canada so I settled for the Granite. I really like it. The second pic is the Goliath wheels that were painted to look like black chrome, as my winter wheels.
