    Struggling on selecting new wheels for '15 Daytona Gray

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Really having difficulty on selecting color and style of wheels for my '15 Daytona Gray S4. IF anyone would have some pictures, I would appreciate it. I am wanting to stay in a 19".

    Thanks in advance.

    Daytona, any gray really, is a bit hard for wheel color choices.. I spent ages trying to decide basically looked at every image on the internet LOL. It really depends on if you are alu optics or black optics.. black optics is a bit easier and you can get away with black, or contrasting greys like gunmetal. Alu optics really only works with hypersilver to match the trim imo.

    Here is my summer setup with hypersilver Avant Garde m580s 19"

    Obviously all stock height.. really need some H&R OE springs to clean these up.

    Good luck! and post what you end up getting always nice to see how people do their daytona greys.

    I have the Black Optics package, leaning toward black, but like the silver look. Stock flowers are not horrible, just want something new.

    Appreciate the council, but thumbing through 185 pages of that thread to find a select color is not my idea of fun, and before you come back with "search" I have, multiple times. Was hoping that there might be "helpful" advice from those that have been down this road. Obviously you have very little to contribute to my thread, how about moving on....

    silver/gun metal cars are very difficult for wheel choices. Mine is ice silver, and silver wheels just doesn't pop at all.
    If the fitment is aggressive enough, usually any wheels/colors work, and the trend is concave wheels.

    AG M510/M590 is a safe bet, but very common setup. HRE/BBS is always a good choice and a little bit more rare due to the price point.
    If the car is not super aggressive, 19x9.5 et 35 ~ 40 seems to be clean, decent concave and relatively rub free.

    Daytona is dark enough so that a really bright silver wheel color can pop and look great. Also, a medium to light bronze/gold can look good. I'd stay away from darker bronze colors as the whole car will look like a dark blob.

    personally i think that the OEM rotor wheels look the best on daytona grey. the s5 rotors specifically.

    Flame suit on.... Played with some color using Plasti dip on stock "Flowers". This is black with a light cherry red overspray, finished with Glossifier. Great thing, if it doesn't look good, peel it, start over. Find the color that works then powder coat.

    LOL - It's like asking what kind of shoes to buy.
    You gotta make the decision based on what you like. Just about any wheel can look good with the proper stance/offset/poke... If you're on stock suspension then just stick with the stock wheels. If you lower then start looking at aftermaket wheels to complement the drop or even stick with stock wheels with the right spacers (nothing wrong with that at all).

    No offence kjeeper but the look is off. Way too much wheel gap. Rears are sunken in way too much (may be the angle of the pic). Regardless... with a 1.5-2 inch drop and proper spacers this could look good.

    On H&R OE springs with stock Dampeners. Trying to do something a little different, but not get crazy.
