    this might almost be enough to be tech, but why start counting posts now?
    and i know there have been MANY posts on the subject, but not many/any quite like this.

    <insert content here:>
    i'm looking for pics of gray steelies, not just pics, but close up's. hopefully in natural light. like the whole pics is just the wheel.
    i'm getting ready to redo mine, and would like to see the different shades of gray people have used.
    somebody used a du-pont concrete gray, i like that, but would like to see others BEFORE i spray mine.

    <hijack disclaimer here:>
    any bets on how many posts this goes before a major hijacking? yeah i know the chat guys :flipoff2:

    Here you go. This is a powder coated wheel done with a color called ASA61. The guy said they usually use it on electrical boxes and things like that. Sorry I couldn't get it in natural light. It's banished to the garage for the time being. The picture looks to me like a pretty reasonable approximation of the actual color.

    Hey this should be in Tech! :flipoff2:

    i saw that thread, it was pretty much "the pimp wheel show".
    i'm looking for the "people's wheel show".

    looks good so far.
