    I do like the wheels. Have been wondering what the car would look like with something similar. Enjoy!

    Do you have spacers on it? Your OEM wheels look really flush with the fenders after lowering.

    Thanks Everyone for the love.
    It was a tough choice but I wanted the classic black on brushed aluminum finish.
    When you order aftermarket wheels , they build them to exact specs & offset’s so you don’t need spacers .

    You did a great job with the cars presentation. Like the wheels, the cars stance. I'm impressed with the contrast that the wheels being high polish bring out the beauty of a black car. I'm tired of the Black,black seen so often which truly hides the lines of the 458. Recently was coming out of an office and someone told me there was a 458 in the lot. It was Black,black and it took me 3 passes to find it! My 458 is the opposite in contrast as it is white with factory carbon race interior/ & exterior. Who is the manufacturer of your wheels? Welcome to FC.

    It’s easy .. any Shop can do it. Basically just twisting perches down like any traditional coils. Just get an alignment afterwards
