For BLING, go nuts. For performance, go CF to reduce that unsprung weight!!!Just too darn similar to stock wheels to dish money out for (IMHO).Go craZy man ...check out the carbon fiber with magnesium spokes painted any colors/ combos you'd like. Other r8 owners won't admit it but that C.F.wheel has no drawbacks.Other than cost. Don't get me wrong those two wheels are **** beutiful.
They both look super. And they both look modern and will work perfect with the R8's modern design. And I'm sure they are plenty strong and light enough to maintain the highest level of performance.
To me the old fashion, stepped lip designs look way too dated for the ultra modern design of the R8. Also with the R8, I think the spoke design needs to cover as much outer area as possible, like both of these do. Otherwise, on the R8 the wheels look undersized and silly.
As to the color,.. I will never understand all BLACK wheels. No matter how beautiful the design, 85% of the time the design is completely swallowed up by the black shadows of the wheel well. But I love the darker look too. So I suggest try a very dark matte gray color, like Porsche Atlas gray, or maybe anthracite. They will look very dark, almost black, but you will be able to see the great wheel design.
I can't make out the center logo. Who makes these?
