Wow, I'm really glad I found this thread, I also have an r33 and I just bought very similar wheels that are currently white with a polished lip I have been thinking about doing gloss black or gold. So now I know exactly what the black would look like, although I think I'm going to keep the polished lip. By the look of the wheel I assume they are only like a 40 or 42 offset so I assume you are running a spacer, how thick is it? and does it get your wheels out far enough to where you want them to be? I'm currently running a 1 inch spacer but I don't think it is going to be thick enough so I think I'm going to 1.5" spacers instead. Make sure you post pics when its all done!

Thank you very much! I'm a long time lurker but just built up the nerves to post something! Enough about me though, I don't want to get the thread off topic :)
I think that was a bad atempt at a dig. Get you ass in to the new members and say hi before posting in the threads.
Sorry bling bling back on topic.
