Unfortunately one of the rims cracked a few days ago (no idea how), so the stock wheels will be going on tomorrow.
I snapped 8 of the 12 spokes on one of my RPF1's after I had them powdercoated. If possible be sure your powdercoater is mediablasting the wheels, not sandblasting or acid dipping prior to painting.
Oh, and nice car BTW!

Too much heat during the powder coat process will weaken them also Nice pics!

Are you serious? Damn that sucks. Wish I had known before I had it done.

Also I wanted to confirm something. I had my stock wheels put on yesterday, and later that day I got a (!) service required light on my dash read out. This is due to the TPMS correct? I'm thinking it wasn't installed correctly, but just want to make sure.

I have PB but the WW looks really good. That said, I would recommend the black RallyArt tails to round off the white with black accents look.

Later, Ken

Hey man, old thread, I know. What specs were your RPF1’s, though? They looked great.
