One of my favorite wheels! I thought about getting those for my old GT-R. I would love to see some better pics.

Nice, those are actually one of the first black wheels that I've seen that I like, the white (?) outline adds just the right definition/contrast.

I believe the "white" is really a machined lip.

Didn't have my glasses with me, white or silver (metal), it really completes the look.

Up from 19inch stock wheels, the steering and the road feel is much enhanced. the ride got a bit more not bumpy but direct according to the toad surface. I m not sure if its the light ness of the rays or the 20inch. The rim is only 19lbs without tire. Unbelievable for 20inch. Loving it.

How does that compare to the BBS FI weight and cost wise?

weigh the same but cost me only USD900 per wheel without tire. FI same size will cost over USD2k each.

personally i like the look of G25 better than BBS FI, the craftsmanship and details on the Rays are more superior than BBS which are also made in japan.

Agree, I am not a fan of black wheels on any color particularly white but with the black interior, those look good!
