are you sure they are the same color? these are NOt gunmetal rims. nor are they silver, they are a black chrome kinda look. i've never seen anything like them... they will be the only 10 sets in the US, because they are being custom made at Rota.

yup.same color.except i got the tarmac 2's,the picture is a tarmac 1
subydude calls it "full royal gunmetallic".it's a silver face,silver outer lip.and the inside of the spoke,rim is gunmetal.so maybe i'm wrong and the tarmac 1 is a deal.but since when did rota make only ten sets of any rim?

oops.thanx for the side by side scuba steve.they do look a little more chromey.i thought the color difference was because one photo was taken outside,one was inside(less light).i guess it is worth the extra $150 if you like chrome.my bad guys.

Hey thanks for mentioning the full royal gun metallic, I really like the look. Be sure to post some pics of them on your car when you can.
