Wow, these are nice, I’ve been fighting against the TE‘s from the group buy for a long time..I wasn’t quite sure what the titanium satin looked like.. but they look really good.. I’d be putting them on my Stealth Grey though… hmm….
yeah...i would go with black wheels if i had a SG RS.

I’m contemplating…..the black ones are $400 more from where I’d be getting them.. and bring the total to over 3k.. 🤔

I'm looking at the T-S5 myself.
a bonus for the t7's is that they don't require hub rings. the tire guy handed me the old rings after he was done fitting the new wheels and i started to explain to him that they need to go on the hub. but he showed me that the new wheels are exact diameter spec for the factory wheel hub.
my old (winter) wheels are konig hypergrams.

I was always told that after market wheels are like women:

I just ordered a set of these for track wheels, but paid a bit more for a custom finish - Satin Graphite with Blue Barrel:

I think on the Stealth Grey, with big brakes F&R, the blue will be subtle, and I didn't want gloss black.

Will post pics in 2-3 months o_O

Those are going to be killer!
I just happened on a pic of @naderpug s rims, also killer!
Other people make the rim choice look so ez.
For me it’s mind numbing, so I give up. Fortunately I do love the forged so it’s not critical, must have, but still..

I have a custom set of KWs but with stock spring perches and stock springs, it is set to exactly stock ride height just with rebound control for AutoX. It does not rub anywhere but it is extremely close (almost paper thin spacing). Sadly, I don't get to run this setup much as I run DS and have an 18x8 wheel setup for that.
