That's why I was first thinking that it could be "Chrome Silver", which is not a RE30 stock color but it can be ordered separately just like Marcury Silver. Additionally I thought that it looked like it had slightly dark chrome (towards black).

Oops, sorry guys, you are definitely correct, I mixed bright silver and mercury silver in my mind. I believe I can order these Mercury Silvers at a special color extra price for the correct 18" and e9x offsets. Great! Thanks guys!

Actually, these RE30s are Formula Silver, not Mercury Silver. Formula Silver is much shinier than Mercury Silver, giving it that "chrome silver" look.

We have them in stock in M3 offsets if anyones interested!

You're correct. We just put on a set on our friends 1000 WHP G35... amazing looking wheels. 21lbs for a 19 x 11.0" rear . Absolutely the lightest wheel Volk has made to date. Go with the Volks or Advans, and you guys won't be disappointed.
