Thanks. Wed Sport TC-005 17x8 and 18x10 which I powder coated black. I'm running 108 to 114.3mm adapters.

Been wanting some wheels pretty bad. My PO gave me adapters with my car, but they are still kind of an odd size 5 x 140 I think. I have been looking at buying Novas, but maybe using the adapters are a better choice.

Start and adapter topic and I'll chime in. I don't want to hijack this thread.

They one you showed goes on a motor bike!

The pair of tail lights are manufactured by SPYDER, a name brand for auto lightings. It is a LED tail light!

Gee whiz! What's with all the hostility? Just wanted to know if anyone used Spyder Lights!

I don't think they are any more "cheesey" than those little dome lights on the rear!

No hostility, just an opinion. As a general rule, I think if the guys that work at Pep Boys are doing it to their cars you shouldn't do it to your exotic.

Dear God, that guy on the photo probably found a couple of "chrome trim" rolls and decided to get high before working on his car.

Back on topic of rear end architecture and tail lights! No wheels, please!
Here is mine sans diffuser which may come later, if I like the looks.

I wonder if it feels smoother while riding at low speeds while providing extra support for spirited driving.

My final concept...
Hmmm...
Now I see-something has to be done with the name badge.
Seems "out of touch".
