    Hey Gang,
    I was just wondering who is running mesh style wheels. I have been tossing the idea in my head and think a few brands really look great. I am at a place where I can get new wheels if I wanted, but the choices are so damn tough. I think Silver was my main paint pick, but I find it not aggressive enough for my car. So I think silver is off the table for now, and I am looking more towards a Brush face with either silver or anthracite type grey trimage. Here are a few mock designs I have created.

    So if you could post your "Mesh Wheels" (or whatever the correct term is) that would be helpful.

    On your car the Forgestar F14 - Gunmetal looks the best to me. :thumbsup:

    Meh, I'd have to pass on all of those. When you said mesh, I was thinking ...

    I decided stock on my setup, because they're less common than aftermarket wheels.

    the last set...tht finish looks the best imo. nothing in gunmetal looks good to me. and definitely do a brushed face. look into niche targa wheels too. those look sooooo good in person

    bronze forgestar.

    I'll hopefully be shooting a red 370z with bronze forgestar soon.
    Forgestar has a really nice bronze

    Those are interesting..I'll have to check sizing. I don't really want pure gunmetal or just plain silver, so liquid silver might be an option. Defiantly want brushed face, if I can find it, but looks like special order for now.

    I think bronze/gold work really nice on red. But whatever floats your boat, please don't do black.

    Those F14's look great. I have been leaning towards the Pretoria's for mine but now I'm second guessing that.

    Nice! I think your going to love a new set of wheels on the Cobra Darhawk! Brushed Silver seems to be the best finish. For your car, I like the Forgestar f14's but makes me wonder what they look like from other angles, i also like the Rovos Pretoria - the last one.

    Which one are you leaning towards Darhawk?

    Well the AMR's are very affordable..in Silver or Dark Stainless.
    but I really like the deep concave look which you get from Rovos. But to have them the way I want I would have to get a custom ordered set, which could be pricey. I have already email the owner of Rovos Wheels and told me they can do it. I really like the look of the F14 the best, as long as they are deep concave in the rears too. My photochops aren't specially good since it's just a side shot and you can't feel out the depth. But I have seen a few F14's on some new edge mustys and they look really good.

    I really want a 18X10 size so I can put on at least a 295 size tire. I mean I still like my ride with the wheels now, because at cars shows I get a lot of love, but my just doesn't compete in the "I'm going to kill you" category like a lot of the ones I see around. Mine is missing something, but can't place my finger on it.

    [MENTION=17070]Tony[/MENTION] - Those mesh TSW NURBURGRING & Niche Targa M131 only come in 18X9.5

    I also like the KMC district wheels but I don't think they come in sn95 bolt patterns or they are only 18x8...something weird about them..

    Good to know. I have not seen these wheels in person so I was unsure if they were concave. I think you should go with these! Out of em all, they def caught my attention but what matters most is you like them the best!!

    Nice! Great idea! I think changing the wheels and tires up will ABSOLUTELY make it look more aggressive. While I am a fan of the stock cobra wheels, I do not think "aggressive" when i see them. I like them for other reasons. If your goal is a more aggressive look then you are on the right path my friend!

    Whats your current rear tire size 245 with a spacer? Looks wise ive never been a fan of 245's on our cars (as we were discussing the other day.) Looks way to small! Spacers help of course but nothing beats having the actual sized tire the 245 spacer user is trying to mimic!

Plus the tread get slapped up on the fenders. lol!! I also would like to get tint. and I am in dyer need to have a deep polish and shine, to get out my squirrel marks..lol.
