Had my 18" Enkei RPFs powdercoated and installed Dunlop Sport Maxx summer tires (245/45-18). Also had custom flat center caps. The car looks a little jacked because it was raised to install the wheels and it hasn't settled back down yet. I think they came out great. I didn't like the original bright silver color. Too much contrast against the black. This color blends in a lot better. They look pretty flush, too, without having some aggressive offset.

I have the Enkei caps, too, with an STi overlay on them. I'll hold on to them in case I ever lose the flat ones. I bought them from a vendor over at IWSTI, but he no longer makes them anymore. Not sure why. I think the vendor's name was WC Lathewerks.

Well, I got a discount because I did the Brembos, too. All in all, $800 for wheels and calipers. The calipers would have been cheaper if I went with the tape option. I opted for the full strip and powdercoat. The wheels would have been slightly cheaper with a matted finish, but I opted for Black Chrome which cost more.

It looks like money well spent.
