    NBM w/ black wheels???

    My car is NBM. i still have the stock wheels. i was thinking of putting black wheels on it. Anybody have any pictures?

    i was even considering doing black 35th stripes or maybe black hood scoop and berger panel instead. And also blacking out all the lights.

    i know most of you guys say black and nbm dont go well. But to tell you the truth i would rather have a black car (and a m6). But it looks like im stuck w/ it

    my car is NBM also. Personally i think black wheels would look bad on "our" cars I would go chrome.

    As far as blacking out the lights I plan on doing it I have seen pics and they look good

    Berger panel wouldn't be worth it in my eyese hardly noticable and im not a personal fan of strips

    thats my opinion hope it helps

    Just my $.02, but black wheels and the Berger panel on a NBM SS look muted to me. I think they look pretty sharp on other colors (where black represents much more of a contrast), however the black on navy blue never really worked for me.

    Personally, I went high contrast on mine -- tinted the windows pretty dark and stuck with the chrome 10 spoke wheels and added a billet grille.

    I agree..black wheels look awesome if they are paired with the right body color. I've seen too many cars lose visual respect because the color of the body swallows the attention to the wheels. Your rims are an important part of the car...just think it over before making a final decision.
    - Also, what i did is take a picture of your car and put it in photoshop and crop in the wheels that you want and then color them to see what looks best..

    I agree with the above members, in my opinion chrome rims would compliment the NBM best.

    My .02 is going with chrome wheels on a NBM. I have chrome C6 z06's and they look killer. Not too many black wheels look good on them IMO. Good luck though I know its the new "In" thing to do now.

    I was opting to go with the black wheel with the chrome ridge around it. Go to tirerack.com and build your car and look at the wheels on it, they dont look bad at all. But I would agree with Midnight, too much black is kind of bland on the NBM. It all boils down to personal preference since YOU are the one who has to look at it every day.

    The prevoius owner of my car was in a front end fender bender and had a shitty touch up job done so the whole front bumper is peeling clear. The back bumper is just scratched up from when I got it too. I am in the process of getting it fixed but like everyone else money is tight.

    Did you do the stripes yourself? if not where and how much?

    I like the chrome 10 spokes but that's just me they are different

    Bummer, sorry to hear man. Yes, me and my dad put the stripes on. He has a machine that cuts the vinyl to the appropriate length and width.

    My rims look to "plain" and "boring" to me. But to each his own.

    I think it would look good. I thought(for about 2 minutes) of powdercoating my rims black. But then I was like, that would be ghetto to powdercoat the stock ugly ass 10 spoke rims black. Would rather buy some 17 or 18s that are already black, with maybe a chrome lip.
