C8's on EJ8's are SICK! Especially bronze. Haha you don't have to get my wheels if you don't want to, I have another buddy interested in them as well.

im just getting started with it. the theme will come in time ha. idk what dalton used to do his wheels some wheel paint but he did them in a gun metal color and it turned out pretty good might give that a shot. if i keep it bronze i would probably just do bronze wheels black erry thing except lcas and vc. keep the red lcas and still do the wrinkle red vc

Duplicolor makes a spray paint specifically for wheels (high temp), I do believe they have a gunmetal color available.

Kind of on the expensive side, around 7-8 bucks a can, but they're totally worth getting because that paint turns out really good on wheels. I bought 2 cans of white a long time ago for my old 14" look-a-like slips and I loved them.

do it dude! i know the spare tire and jack are 35 together to thats what you lost with not having those.
so a b18c is 80 lbs more then a d16 and youve so far deleted back seat, spare and jack.
your stock weight with d16 is 2513+ b18c= basically 2600 lbs - 35 from jack and spare 2565 then - your back seat is where you stand!
get rid of ur ps/ac/cc and get some rims and you should see 2500 lbs!
