no pics on a blue STi, at least not in Gunmetal.

if Ft. Myers didn't kick Chi out for having to loud of an exhaust you could've seen them in gold on a blue MY04 STi (same size and offset too :D).

they look really good.

Saw a Blue/Gunmetal on an 05 today, but I forgot to take pics. Sat nice and flush.

The MY05s have a different offset available for 17x8.5 and 18x8.5.

J/ a heads up.

I have 18 x 8.5 +44 Titanium gunmetal CE28n's on my 2004 STi which are wrapped in 235/40/R18 Falken Azenis RT615's. I'm also lowered on STi Pink springs (about a 1in drop).

Since the Falkens are pretty beefy tires I get moderate to extreme rubbing in the rear, but only when i have 1 or 2 people sitting in the back. If I'm driving by myself or with someone in the passenger seat, I get no rubbing whatsoever. The rubbing is the most severe on the drivers side rear, to the extent that my fender liner got shredded to pieces.

If you plan on going with the Prodrive springs and the 18 x 8.5s, I'd look into getting your rear fenders rolled, especially if you regularly have people sitting in your rear seats.

And for pics of Titanium Gunmetal CE28's check my journal: http://www.iwsti.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46391

if you ran slightly more rear camber or rolled that rear fender a little I'm pretty sure you could get rid of that rubbing.

but this is the reason I say 235/40 18.

Hmm...I never even thought about adding more camber to prevent rubbing. It does make alot of sense though.

Volk is willing to do custom colors, but you'll have to pay for it and wait.

Bronze, Gold, and Titanium Silver are the only three "standard" colors. For the CE28N.

From the pics i've seen, ti-gunmetal looks different in varying lights.

I would personally have liked them the same shade of gunmetal as my old Work Emotion's, but they're still incredibly hot nonetheless.



Oh baby!

Or, see this thread over at evolutionm.net -

CE28n's come in a few Different colors. As T3h_Clap mention:

Gold, Titanium Silver, and Bronze are the standard colors.

Limited Edition Colors include: Mercury Silver, Gunmetal, Titanium Gunmetal, and Diamond Black.

Diamond black is inbetween "Black" and "Titanium Gunmetal". It's slightly darker then my wheels but not as dark as black.

Titanium Gunmetal as Huy mentioned appears to change color depending on the light. In direct sunlight its a medium silver, in the shade it turns rather dark, especially if your wheels are dirty.

Gunmetal is a few shades lighter then Titanium Gunmetal, but slightly darker then the stock silver STi BBS.

Titanium Silver is pretty much the same shade as the stock silver BBS wheels only slightly lighter.

Mercury Silver can be compared to chrome.

If you want to see a specific color let me know, and I'll see if I can find some pics.

That is the *exact* wheel I want. In that color. 18" But after looking at sizing it doesn't look like they make an 8" or 8.5" in a good offset. :(
