The Apex Shadow is actually a multi-stage machined paint. It starts off with a base black coat, then multiple layers of paint is applied to create this extra shiny gunmetal look. It is similar to the Black Chrome / Smoked Chrome finish without the additional cost, but with added durability. Under darker lightning condition the finish will be much darker, while under the sun it's very shiny and metallic.

Changing the wheels will completely change the look of your car. A set of appropriately sized wheels allows the perfect wheel and tire fitment to give your car that aggressive stance without sacrificing drivability. The width and offset chosen for the Option Lab S718 wheel was not randomly picked. While the 9.5 inch wide wheel width features a 2.5 inch lip and allows tires up to 285 section width tires to be fitted, many owners opt for the 245 or 255 section width tires that will be slightly stretched on the wheel to minimize sidewall flex experienced during hard cornering; keep in mind each tire manufacture makes their tire slightly different.
Fit & Finish:
While many of Option Lab Wheels competitors overlook small details like this, they always mask the lug pocket opening on their wheels prior to painting it. You may wonder why this is important. The reason being if there was paint on the lug pocket, then the lug nuts could break the thin layer of paint and they could potentially come loose.
Functionality is important to Option Lab Wheels. The Option Lab S718 features a wide lug opening that does not require the use of smaller diameter tuner lug nuts. All of their wheels have a 60 degree tapered lug seat also known as conical seat; if your OEM lug nuts have a flange type seat or ball seat, please source a set of lug nuts with conical seat and correct thread pitch.
All Option Lab wheels are designed to accept most OEM and aftermarket replacement Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor (TPMS) along with any standard rubber or metal valve stems.
