Did you look at the picture? 

Yeah.  OK.  They have a sheen to them.  I should have said they're NOT SHINY :) :) :)  chrome.

No, they're not shiny chrome. They're shiny carbon fiber!

 

BTW... what is it with you and shiny? Were you a crow in a past life?   :lol:

Crow?  I don't get it. No past life.  I made some good tips at the Last Supper, though.   I just like SHINY :) :) :)  car/trucks/bikes.  What's wrong with SHINY :) :) :) ?   Back in West Chicago & Aurora, I had a black 4 wheel drive Dodge pickup.  In the winter I'd get home from work, let the garage warm up (they were heated), and I'd wash that puppy.  The next day I was the only person on the road with a SHINY :) :) :)  truck.  People used to ask if I had a car wash set up in my garage at home.

 

And as Fatkidd would say, if you're not SHINY :) :) :) , you're just dull!

For some reason, crows love shiny stuff. They gather up shiny things they find and take them back to their nest. Nobody knows why.

There's plenty of crows around here.  They're noisy!  Call me Crazy - many already do - I just like SHINY :) :) :) .  And you what else?  It's Friday, and time go heat up the pizza, make some popcorn, and watch WWE Friday Night Smackdown.  I'll check back in tomorrow morning (I hope).

 

Before you ask.  Yes, I live in my own small world.

Shiny is good, I like me some shiny :lol:

 

As for the CF wheels,  I dont think you are going to see these on street cars, I think its more for race cars, well thats what I see them being used on ,  sometime down the road, I do see them on street cars, but when the price comes down a lot. 

 

I would put them on my car, but not at the price which is almost six times more then what my car is worth :lol:

WOW! And to think I was bitching when carbon fiber slalom skateboard decks came out a few years ago and they were a measly 450.00.

 

 

Pound for pound i think we skaters got a great deal in retrospect.

Jim, at least you know the word is 'shiny' and not "shinny" like we see so often posted.   That's a plus for you, small world or not!   :lol:

Wow, and I thought HRE wheels were expensive O_O

At least with those Carbon Fiber and the HRE wheels you'll get a strong, light, and most likely good looking wheel..........and the HRE's would be made specifically for your car!
