They are Volk Special Order green.

Those are Takata green Volk TE37's That is Jonathan Birth's car. Check the Feb. 06' issue of Superstreet he has a feature in it. It even says they are Takata green.

I thought they weren't because the thread that I got that pic from said they weren't... plus it does look like a different shade, but I guess that's just the pic?

*edit -

I know it's called grabber green, but a) it's a very odd color, I don't really like it... b) I like the green on the EK and c) grabber green wasn't available in the local paintshop...

Agreed, the Takata green is kinda cool in a way (like on black) but I think just plain bright green would be better (like on white), like how the EK wheels look *in that pic* (I know they are actually Takata green, but in that pic they look different)

BTW, supposedly, here is the Grabber Green, a stock Ford color

Big ups if you can make the colors work. Because on the car that it's posted on, I think it's disgusting

Did a little more research... seems there's a new Grabber green and an old grabber green ????? The old one is butt ugly (as on Ford above)... the new one is called: Grabber green engine enamel... and that looks just like the EKs wheels

It's some sort of engine paint, not a normal paint... that's why I couldn't find it >_< Damn... wish I knew this earlier

That EK's green is just the regular Volk Takata green, I saw more pics of it yesterday (I can't find them again ) and in the other pics it looked more sea greenish/takata

But I want to see the engine enamel on a set of wheels, anyone got pics?
