Just fitted my new 20's to the car! They're 10.5 in front and 11.5 in the rear. I'm still working on the center cap design and should have something soon! Oh and I'm not using any spacers! Please shoot me your feedback, good or bad! I can take it! :doh:
Thanks..

no offense, but just not feeling it... doesn't seem to fit the lines of the GT-R and makes it, in my opinion, less racey? (not ricey; racey...as in race-like) it's not aggressive enough and the color doesn't seem to fit the red...

hmm.. I kinda agree on the color thing! What if the spokes were more indented inward?

Thanks man! For sure on the Gold or Bronze, I'm just wanting to get the wheel design just right!

completely disagree on the color, silver wheels look awesome on every single color GTR. I think the fitment without the spacers is great, too. Only thing I could see that needs improvement is maybe a 1 inch lip in the back. Big lips dont look great on this car but its needs a little something extra.

I like the color combo. Matches some of the details. I know its not a finished product, but they look good.

i think if you mean the interior portion of the spokes being indented a bit more, then yes, i agree...this would make it a bit more aggressive... this would fall in line with the Volk TE37 type wheel... and it may be my LCD, but the color looks a very white-ish silver... this is throwing me off... maybe if it were a bit more gun metal? also, i think the rear needs a bit more aggressive of an offset...

overall, the design is good... it just doesn't suit me as i'm into the aggressive look... especially for the GT-R... it is, as advertised, the daily-driven capable supercar...can't put weenie wheels on this one... :OMG:

I think the inward thing would look good but what I'm not loving is the heaviness of the rims. I like a little thinner spoke.

reminds me of the volk G7 offered in 18's and 19's.

slightly differnt. the G2's have less spokes. offered in only 20?

of course your design is visially differnt in many respects, i just reminds me of these. could be a very affordable choice for those who cant budge for those volks.

i feel there is something missing but i dunno what. regardless they still look really nice.

Car is looking good. Everybody has there own taste and I like these wheels but they would n't be my first choice. Maybe down the list at like 8 or 9. But jsut an opinion. Later

Thanks for the comments! Here are some shots fresh off the machine.. These are before they were cleared. I actually prefer this look before the powder coating. My plan is to run another set off, but this time making the spokes more concaved, and possibly building up the lip behind the spokes on the barrel ever so slightly to hide the weights.. At any rate I'm still working on it and appreciate the help..

Nice job Daryl. I know how long you have been working on these... I think they look great. I wonder if having maybe a 3" lip would look good?? Those would look sick in black! I'll have to swing by and take a look in person.

good progress Daryl, im thinking just a small tweak to concave the spokes to give the center lug area a little more recessed look , im not one of those that has to have a huge lip to like a wheel so that aspect looks about right

as far as finish , i get a minimalistic purposeful vibe by looking at them so maybe a flat black powder coat option would go well with these

Upon further review of the "close up" pics, I really like the raw look of the metal!
