Ordered New Wheels

After a lot of thought I decided to go with these Centerline Qualifiers
18x8 & 18x9.5. Click image for larger version

Good pick, should look sick. If you don't mind me asking where did you buy them from? I can't decide if I want to go with chrome or black rims.

I ordered direct from Centerline they have to custom make the 18" . They are also highly polished Forged Aluminum. They aren't chrome plated. I think the polished look will look great with my under hood polished tank & caps. They are pretty expensive at $1750 for a set of 4 with lugs.

I use to be a chrome fanatic, even a chrome fire extinguisher. Now I'm back in black. When it comes to 1/10 seconds less weight in the wrong place matters. But, if you are going for looks chrome all day has the best shine.

I'm going 285 in the rear possibly even 295 if I can get a deal on the tires, I already have the 285's but the 295 will give me just a little more bite, and will fill out the fender wells much better if I lower the car.

Actually these are highly polished Alum. I'll post some pics to the thread when I get them on the car. Still a couple of weeks away.

Those wheels are some of the nicest I've seen in a while. Would look great on the Cobra.
Congrats!!

Looks awesome! Just beware polished aluminum is a ***** to maintain. Wax at all times or it WILL pit.

I guess you could order them unpolished you'd have to ask them I don't know. I guess you could always powder coat if you wanted also.
If you order some from Centerline just don't be in a hurry it took me right at 2 months to get mine built & on my doorstep. Otherwise very pleased with the wheel

I will be honest, they look better than I thought they would. I am not sold on the all chrome wheels completely, but yours look nice. Good choice.
