Getting RX-8 wheels on Sat. Any personal insight by anyone who has had rims done in Milwaukee on where to go? Rather not go to Chicago, either. Not sure I want to do it, but could be coaxed. Looking to do black (flat/matte) on Aurora Blue. A Shinka-like color would be my other idea. Those are the only two ideas I'm capable of. Thanks for any responses this may get.

Went to Hy-tech Wednesday. Going with 'Anthracite'. Kind of a dark grey metallic. Hope they will look alright. Thought black might be too riceish, regular silver too regular. Black chrome w/ clear was a thought. Pics as soon as I find some decent tires and I get the rims back.

75 a rim. A little pricey, but I think it should be worth it. It's a full-on shop, not some guy in a garage. Not that you can't get good results from a guy in a garage, just that most all of what they do are parts. Lots of Harley parts at that.

Did you put them on yet. Show us some pics. I was thinking about the same color. But I got to get some RX8 rims first which I am still looking for.

I'm not sure how to post pictures. Never tried myself. But your RX8 rims look awesome so far. Probs look even better on the car.

As far as powercoating in IL, not even sure. I'm a Wisconsinite so can't help you there.

Here we go... I know it needs a drop. Taking opinions on front and rear emblems/badges and caliper colors. So far I've got a grey caliper vote with a black or silver decal.

I'm also looking for help getting these images to fill the screen better. I'm using photobucket on a Mac with a 6mp camera. I just can't get the same results as others.
