So after 6 years I am ready to change it up a little. No graphics. Wheels are very personal and 10 people will each like something different. I have always liked the wheels. Time to go with a little different color. Went by Affordable PC this morning and they have a color I really like. It is called Ultra Black Chrome. Apparently Tatum has a car in their showroom with this color on the frame.  I rattle canned some parts on the buggy this summer and the tone is actually pretty close. No metallic though.

Couple of wheels online showing this color.

ULTRA BLACK CHROME

What does this match?

Item: USS-5204

Description:

Ultra Black Chrome is a unique one of a kind deep charcoal. This color is a polyurethane solid tone powder coat and has a high gloss finish.

Two Coat Information: To achieve this color as shown, PPS 2974 Clear Vision must be applied as a top coat.

They don't have JPEG files but this link shows some wheels done in this color. Affordable had some parts they had just done and I really like it. :flag:

Interlago sells my wheel in Black as well as the machined aluminum I have now. Black is still to dark for me and thinking the  Ultra Black Chrome will look good.  Found some pics of a red car with the black.

Not the best light and the car is filthy from sitting but ...........   I am liking it. Took a little bit of the shine off.  Also got rid of the drag radials and it is a completely different car. Those things vibrated even after re-balancing.  Smooth as a babies butt now. No more wallowing around in the rear. Traction will be a different story. Can't have both worlds. Took a pretty sharp curve today at 55 and damn that was fun.  Car has been outside with 2 car covers on it for the last few years. Finally sitting in the garage now and next up will be a good buff and wax. :igar: Also turned the front rotors and put on some hawk pads which is supposed to have less brake dust than stock.
