So I’ve been putting off my post until the car is “done” and where I want it to be. Not sure that is going to happen soon 😊. So here is my setup as is…

Wheels: Vertini RFS1.2 with Gloss Black Brush Tint Rotary Forged. 21x9 40 offset

Tires: Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 Plus, 265/40ZR21 XL 105W

Calipers: Painted using a G2 kit with customer color (same as the car). And yes, I am aware I messed up the Brembo decals direction, I might fix it at a later
date...

Nice, I would also look into getting the fender flares painted body color, too. Decent shop should be able to do that no problem.

It looks great. If you had not mentioned anything about the Brembo directional thing, I would not have noticed. I'm not sure how many of us would although I'm sure people would have probably jumped on you had you said nothing. Regardless, it looks awesome!

Looks awesome! Can you link the caliber painting kit you used? Also how hard was it? I'm still looking for a 2022 to buy but will be ordering a 2023 when the orders open. My first three things to do when I eventually get one of these cars in my hands are 1) window tint 2) wheels 3)caliper paint.

Down the road, I'll look into painting fender flares, and possibly a faux grill vinyl or something unless somehow I get a GT (not looking to be in my budget, but we'll see).

Car looks beautiful!

You are absolutely right. Just trying to get ahead of it though :)

Here is the caliper paint: https://www.g2usa.com/

I still have to get to my tint/vinyl shop to do a couple of things (eventually I'll repost when that is done). A faux grill, spoiler, and graphic are still on the list. All part of the process.....good luck!!

Most definitely there is a loss. Since I live in a city I was not really concerned about lost range, but I would estimate I am losing around 20%. That being said, it is always in unbridled and I do not take it easy at lights (even with the looming potential stop safely light to come on)

20” has a lot more selection for rims and tires. I just wanted a slightly fuller look of the 21”

No rubbing? 21s do look great. I have on my Mustang and get a little rubbing. That fuller look is fire!

🔥 Thanks! Fitment is great and no rubbing issues whatsoever.
