    i personally can't stand black wheels, especially on a black car thats just way to much black. imo this one looks 100% better mileage or not.

    Black rims are too much. Get the T-top shades from him as well. I always leave them in.

    The funny thing with this guy, is that he "says" he babies it but then again his name for ebay is "dragracecasey" makes me suspicious..........

    The rims would look nice with a chrome lip but w/o they look like spares from a distance

    Two things here...Automatic and no front license plate filler...

    I agree with some of the above posters...all black rims are not that good looking, but if you add a chrome lip, it offsets the color difference between the wheel and the tire (check out my Avatar and my Profile Picture)

    yeah i see what your saying, the lip and the t/a overlays break the black up some. but if i were to put another set of wheels on my car it would probably be these. this is the april cotm winner, very nice ws6 owned by mr. luos.

    What do you guys think gold rims would look like on a black car? I have entertained the idea.

    Also both door panels are cracked. Bone stock otherwise and I like it.

    Riddle me this...When did black rims become good looking. I just don't get it. Maybe I'm too old to understand, and let me say this to anyone who has them-I am not trying to start anything here-But I just don't get it. Rims are supposed to be pollished either Chrome or Aluminum. Hot rodding is all about being over the top, not subtile (unless you want a sleeper) and our cars aren't sleepers whan in factory trim.

    I would want the car with the lowest miles as long as it has been taken care of. I'd sell the black wheels and get some chrome ones.

    Your answer: KNIGHT RIDER!! LOL

    I love black wheels on any car. I've never been one for chrome accents on vehicles. Typically the first thing I do when I buy something is start changing the chrome or silver accents over to black.
