not true. the 06 07 wheels are a different color than the 08s. Its a slight shade difference, but its enough to be noticeable.

3 different shades. 08 are dark, 07 are lighter, and 06 are light in shades of gray/silver.

I have an 08 coupe and the wheels are darker then the 07-06 wheels. You can tell pretty easily

the 06 wheels seem to be more white. 07 was a bit darker then that and the 08's were the darkest of them. Then came the redesign of the 09+

The center caps on my 06 match the wheel color perfectly.

yes the rims were made darker in the later yrs... think they darkened a lil from 07-08, than the 09 rims came out...

btw the symbol for inch would be " not '
' is the sign for a feet (also can be minutes with angles)
" can also be seconds with angles
