Got my 351M style rims powder coated in Forged Charcoal. Pretty happy how it turned out.

I'm feeling partial on my calipers. Kind of wish they came out a little darker. My wifey thinks they're fine in person and that the pics don't due it justice. I might give it some time and see if they grow on me otherwise I'll have to cough up a few hundred $$ to go black calipers.

What do you guys think? Your opinions are welcomed! Thanks

They're the 351M style rims which came with the original M-Sport package.

Rims look great! Calipers are a pop. Depends what your going for. If your going for a bit sleeker I would go black calipers. Just my opinion.
