    I like it!! Nice job. I think it flows well with the car and the red calipers also. Plus it's unique.

    Thanks. I was thinking on also painting the spokes black and keeping the chrome lip.

    I actually like the chrome. The black center caps dress up the chrome nicely.

    I don't care for it. I like the Bowtie, but not the black caps. It clashes too much with the chrome, and I bet if someone were to see the car from a distance, they'd just think the caps were missing.

    Just my opinion though.

    At least you had the guts to try something a bit different, that's cool.

    Thanks for the opinion. Thats was what I was afraid of. That the rims would
    look like the caps where missing.

    I like it alot, on almost any other car with any other color scheme it would look out of place. But you took the time to do a nice job and it really suits your car. Nice work man!

    I can't tell for sure from the photos, but you need to get all your lugnuts matching, whatever it takes whether that is chrome caps etc.

    In regards to the centercaps, it sticks out like a sore thumb, it does not flow IMO and says look at me, I stand out, and who really wants to draw attention to their centercaps? I would not do that to my car, but its not my car or money either, so I am not going to lose sleep over it either.

    Looking at the lug nuts again, there is 1 on both the front and back that does look different.

    I think if you had a little more black accents it would blend better. The ones in the front work because you have the black stripes plus the black emblems that all blend well, especially the way the bowtie is red and syncs up with the red 5.7 portion of your emblem. But there's nothing in the back for the rears to blend with so they stick out. On a side note, I like how you relocated the Z28 emblem to work with the LS1/5.7 emblem. It looks like it should have came that way.
