Stainless barrels and lips are heavy, pricey (up to double compared to aluminium), more work to polish but have the advantage of minimal work to keep them polished to a mirror shine all year round. Didn't realise they were 2 piece.
I've seen aluminum lipped ones which are 3 piece, cheaper to make the barrels lips in aluminium to nail the perfect offsets or stance, lighter, easier/cheaper to polish and require a lot more effort to maintain the mirror polish.
They really looks great on that gtv6! I love the yellow lights too!
