Nah, I like 'em, they stay . I admit that they are a bit flashy, but when you've got white wheels you're not exactly going with the subtle look. I think one of the best things SVT did with this car was slap on the giant brakes, so I think they deserve some attention brought to them.

I am considering modifying the wheel center caps a bit to match, maybe blue with white lettering, or the reverse of that. And maybe some blue lugs to tie it all together.

It's actually not fading, the design is a series of little dots that get further spaced out as you move towards the back of the car, thus "fading" into the body color. It is, however, starting to flake off in certain places. When I bought the car, I though for sure it would be the first thing to come off, but lately I've been debating whether or not to get rid of it, cuz I kinda like it now that the wheels are white.

Inserts are painted, letting the clear coat dry for a day or two before reassembly.

I went with a satin black, metallic blue, and original chrome color scheme, don't think I've seen it done this way before. I love them so far, can't wait to see how they look on the car! I'll take some higher-than-camera-phone-quality pics when that happens, these pictures really don't do them justice.

Tim, I have the stock Mach HID bulbs and didn't bother upgrading those, but I will be putting in a nicer set of high beams.

White wheels > black wheels, IMO. Black is too overdone, and the white makes the whole car pop more. I think I did them near the end of June. My winter set of wheels are stock 16" 05ish wheels painted black, so I'll still have that look for a few months. One day I'd like to have the wheels powdercoated white for a better finish.

BTW, the white is a pain in the arse to keep clean. I go through lots of wheel cleaner, and there is much scrubbing involved.
