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

I quit my job recently to become self-employed and was seriously considering selling the SRT to free up some funds. However, things are currently going better than expected and since I need new tires, I figured I'd step up to 22s and 305 Pirellis (whenever they start making them again). With that being said, I went ahead and ordered my wheels today...22x10.5 Velgen VMB-5s in Matte Gunmetal. Thanks to CLStech for catching my eye with these. I was looking for a split 5-spoke and these won out against a few others (XO Verona, Concavo CWS-5, etc). I'm not sure how the color will look on my Billet Silver, but I didn't want to go with black. Pictures I have seen have the color ranging from navy blue to black depending on lighting...however I think the newest versions have less blue than the previous ones.

Good choice @Bmrisko, I wanted the matte gunmetal as well. Should look great!

love the color should look great with the billet silver! Makes me wonder if I should have waited on the matte gunmetal...

I got mine painted, the satin black was great but i wanted to be different. Car is in the shop getting a bumper replacement due to a fender bender. But here is a sneak peak! She's going lower too!
Whats your guys thoughts on coloring the center cap Velgen logo, maybe white lettering??

Sorry to hear about the fender bender.

I like the idea of the white lettering... would be subtle.

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

I think the white lettering would tire in well with the body color...I say try it out!

Also, going lower? RM Mid...?

Interested to hear if you get the rear alignment dialed in w/o the adj arms...or maybe you got those to go with the springs.
