I would be weary of white as well...

If you are stuck on the white you can step up to the Tuffshield style which has a glossy finish and easy to clean. The one drawback is it is an extra $1/sqft.

If you go onto the website and custom build your floor on the floor designer and submit for a quote they will send you sample tiles of the colors you pick. I got a white tile and I see what she meant as far as cleaning. Don't forgot to sign up on that other forum and tell Race Deck, as it saves you almost $1/sqft.

That is great info. I had a feeling the white would get dirty fast and easy, I was just hoping since it's garage flooring they figured out how to keep it from staining and such. I will have to chose a new color! Thanks for the info.

No prob. It won't stain though it is just harder to clean but she guaranteed me that it can be cleaned just need a little more elbow grease. The alloy is actually fairly light and would probably look good with the black. They will also send you little plastic swatches of all the colors they have if you request.

I have backed my challenger onto it three or four times now. When I back into the garge I have to turn the wheel a few times to reposition the car to make room for me jeep. I was leaving a lot of tire marks on my bare concrete. So far not so much as a mark on the tiles, very impressed!

Awesome! I just emailed them asking for color samples! Thanks for the help

I love this. I think I may actually do it at my rental and just take them with me when I move

Good idea. The only thing is you would probably lose the outside border tiles as you need to trim those.

Yeah. Would be worth it though. I'm OCD and the garage floor in there drives me up the wall!!! Haha

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

I got new Brembo cross drilled rotors in today and also had time to have my buddy install them after work. I am very pleased with them and they look much better behind my wide open Vossen wheels. I was curious how long they would keep the gold hue but after just the ride home they were completely silver hue.

Gold is the Zinc coating it's supposed to change colors when broke in

What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

So you think there is much temp difference or stopping power ? , than the standards or you just went for cosmetic looks ?.
They do look really nice shame the gold doesn't last would look good the gold colour on my Deep Cherry Red car
are they bigger diameter than standard

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Mine arrived from Tireack as well - d@mn they are heavy! But look stellar

Also got the new hawk 5.0 performance pads for the fronts - so we will see how it goes - hope to get installed next week.

I'm @ 15K miles - what is the general thought - how long will these last under 'normal conditions' 30K? - would hopefully last me till the next-gen SRT comes out (fingers crossed)
