Black wheels and black tires equal black hole in wheel wells. To put it mildly, not my cup of tea. My 2 cents worth with inflation! LOLl

It’s not the wheel’s fault, it’s the brake pads. Having said that I do like the black wheels but would have liked to see a darker gunmetal.

My first thought when I saw the Steeda's was "my god what are break temps like when you can see so little brake through them." I can imagine the stopping power lost to heat in those is pretty high vs the stock wheel.

I mean over all I'm not impressed with the car its just like their Q car, but with green parts.

Are you referring to the original 555’s or the newer G2 versions ?

YES I like those! Though I wish they were available in 19”. I’m generally not a fan of 20” and above, I like to see a little meat on the bone.

The original 555's. We ran them on an 11 Coyote. They were grippy in the dry, noisy, and were a little "slidey" when pushed in the wet. No experience with the latest version.
Also like a little higher aspect ratio of the 19's. Once you get below 45 AR you are asking for damaged wheels.

Uh, no. Most of the brake cooling comes from forced convection with the air source from inside the wheels, not from the outside in. The rest comes from conduction of heat from the rotor>hub>wheel, so more wheel mass is better from a brake cooling perspective. Lots of race cars have almost flush and almost solid face wheels to aid in drag reduction.

Don't forget, race cars have cooling ducts with fans, sometimes for the rotor, caliper and inner rim locations. Also the rotors and pads are meant to withstand up to 1300 F. You want to see brake dust? Watch a pit stop at Martinsville on a Nascar broadcast.
And, yes the rotors act like a fan pushing air outward. Bigger diameter wheels just allow bigger brakes, more swept area, greater heat shedding capacity.
