Thanks. I keep hearing I should be ok but when I look a the current setup I'm saying hmmm. I'll have to take it to the shop and have them take a look with me, but you're probably right. Just don't want issues.

I love the v710s but cannot decide on color for my CW 4dr. I love the matte black but don't like how they make it look like a big black hole. I like the gunmetal but it just doesn't flow for me with my white/black theme. The silver is too generic and doesn't stand out as much as I would like. How do you like yours? Does it look better/worse is certain weather/light conditions?

I love the gunmetal... I feel like the color never changes too drastically if they're dirty or in different lighting.

If you already got a white/black theme going, I'd really consider the black wheels, I think the gunmetal could throw it off.. Maybe you can get them powder coated black (tons of options..) instead of the matte black...

I'll post some pics of my CW when my Matte Black V710s arrive. I opted for 19s. Plus VMR can custom powder coat any of there wheels. I thought about Sunken Treasure.

Would like to try new finish for my wheels.

Thumbs up

I just received my V710s today. Matte Black, 19x8.5, ET45 with Hankook V12s 225/35/19. I am super happy!

This was a quick Pic taken with my Cell right after bolting them up and backing out of my garage! Better Pics Forthcoming! Great buying experience from VMR.
