These are Platinum Apex 200's. They were pretty hard to find in our size, but I got a set from TireRack. They may have received additional shipments since I ordered mine, you can check their website or call them.

These rims are pretty nice. They are holding up extremely well after 10K. I would buy them again if I had it to do all over again . Had a lot of compliments on them over the past few months.

it's odd , tire rack says they are black w/ silver rim and on their site it does indeed look black but in ur pics they look much lighter, more like smoked.

Mine are the HyperBlack (gunmetal) color. They offered them in Chrome, Black and Hyperblack last year. I'm kinda partial to the gunmetal color myself. I have some black 5 spokes for my Mustang and the solid black and white just wasn't catchy enough. You see very few on the road with this color, so it sets it apart from the "everyday".

i stand corrected.. they gun metal is offered... maybe i'll take the plunge... hmmmm
i currently have the optional polished 17" wheels and i like them but these are really nice.
did you need to fit spacers on the hubs? was it a OEM fit?

Maybe I wasn't clear. The HyperBlack is gunmetal. You have Black (which is black), Chrome (which is silver), Hyperblack (which is smoke colored, or gunmetal as they call it)

Looks like our posts crossed in the cloud. So, here's the latest answers...

1) No spacers or mods needed to the hubs if you get the right lug pattern. Although I may do a small spacer later on for more offset.

2) OEM TPMS, they take them directly off the OEM rims and reinstall on the new.

3) The pics I posted don't show it, but I had the Eibach Prokit 1" drop springs installed just after these shots were taken and the tires fit very nicely just inside the wheel wells. No rubbing or scraping.

4) These come shipped to your door, ready for installation. I used a local shop to do the mounting since I transferred the Michelins over from the OEM rims.

It's well worth the bucks in my opinion. I bought the whole set, had them mounted, and paid for my springs from the proceeds from selling the OEM 18's.
