    I was hoping for the front wheels to be a little more concave, but I can live with it. The rears look exactly as I was hoping. Still rides great in Sport mode.
    :D

    Man those look really nice! Love the fact that they are not black.

    Everybody and their mother gets black wheels. I don't like the way they look. If you don't add tire shine you can't tell where the tire ends and the wheels begin. They blend together.

    They look awesome. Can't wait to add some 22's to my Scat. They fill the wheel wells nicely.

    Thanks for the compliments! One of the motivating factors for picking the B5B color was because I thought it would work really well with gold/bronze wheels. I'm digging it quite a bit.

    Your wheels (and car) look great!
    Any possibility of trying that rear wheel fitment on the front just for grins and giggles? In trying to find the largest (widest) wheel and tire combo that will work on the front end.
    Thank you for trying.

    Nice looking wheels... they look good on a Charger. I must admit I'm not a big fan of 22"... If anything if they made 19" that would be the way I'd go.

    Oh man, I wish I would've seen this earlier. I had the front driver wheel off this week to apply touchup paint to the caliper. Darn chips already with less than 2k miles on the odometer. I did the touch up paint, changed the oil, & installed a catch can all at once. I'll let you know when I can give it a go again. I have to warn you though, I'm not in a hurry to get under there again. ;)

    Testors 1103 gloss red

    I did a bunch of searching and made the mistake of buying RAL3020 powdercoat touch up. It's close but not an exact match, being a hair more orange. Then I found a post stating Testors 1103 enamel paint was recommended. Tried that and can say it's damn near a 100% match.

    I will try to get a good pic of the rear tomorrow....

    Yep, Nitto invo's & 420s. I couldn't find an exact match in the staggered setup I'm running, but I stayed with the same manufacturer at least....
