Default New wheels

Got new wheels last week. I think the exterior is done until I find a good deal on '13 tails...buying the CS was really taking a shortcut, since it had the fascias and spoiler that I would have added to a regular GT anyway.

18x9.5 square TSW's in bronze with 275/40/18 Nittos.

Love those wheels. Do they really have a bronzy kind of hue to them, or are they Gunmetal and it's just the sunlight giving them the brownish/yellow tint?

Edit: nevermind... just reread your description and see that they are bronze.

Disappointingly enough, with the heavy Nittos they were only a couple pounds lighter than stock. I'm blaming it on the Nittos though, which I have heard are heavy in themselves compared to others. I know the forged TSW's are supposed to be something like 25 lbs. IIRC each of these mounted up was something like 56 lbs on my POS bathroom scale. Stockers were like 60.
