Update teaser: Work Brombachers

Hey guise

super bored so I thought I'd share a small update.
So the original plan was to get authentic BBS LM, polish the lips, and brush finish the faces.

While saving for them, I came across a good deal on some Work Brombachers and decided they were close enough lol.
I figured they already have polished lips, so i'd really only have to do the centers.

Anyways, just got them back from getting refinished to a brushed finish for the faces. Overall I'm really happy about the finish. I love the mechanical/industrial look of brushed metal.





Detail shot:



Kinda in no rush to mount them. Gonna take my time lol.
Trying to figure out a couple other things at the moment.
• Should I opti coat them?
• What wheel studs should I get?
• What lug nuts should i get?

Stuff like that. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know

Thanks. I took them to a local shop. www.wheelflip.com
Pretty happy with the job. A bit delayed because of SEMA, but I was in no rush.

I may add a 10mm spacer up front. Still on the fence about it.

Don't think you'll need the spacers. Love the wheels though.

Thanks for the suggestions. The neochrome look pretty cool.
But as I was browsing around for them I also came across some Burnt titanium nuts. now I'm even more unsure of what to get.

Anyone have any experience with these? apparently made by Blox:

brushed centers with gold accents on a black car should be really nice

I'm running some custom Titanium Studs with those Blox Titanium Lug nuts. Definitely my favorite set of lugs over my previous set, Project Kic R40's. They're great because they're not too flashy but give a great contrast against the wheels.

I had the Blox before. They're just different material than the R40.

Love the brush Ryan! it gives the forged look. i just never got around to doing it, we have similar taste cause marvin and I both ran ti studs and nuts. I ran those r40s as well but after a while im like why are my nuts rainbow??? theres alot of mutekis and other low budget nuts that copied that same look so i decided its time to get out LOL. Those ti nuts never changed colors as i had them over 3 years. the side walls (7sided) takes all the impact blows while the rounded outside is what you see so they look baller new all day long. ill never buy another set of nuts after these. those are 75mm ti studs btw
