    perhaps, these younger kiddos see something that 'looks' cool and they believe that if they have them on their car it makes them 'cool'...

    kinda of like the slim or skinny jeans people wear, who have no idea how bad they really look in them...

    i guess if i ever wanted black rims, id simply stop cleaning my wheels...
    haha.. your must be 50 something I take, anyways I'm not into black painted wheels on a black car. I like chrome on black. I'll sell you my ugly smoothies for 200 when I get new wheels. they have big time curb rash lol.

    I was considering breifly getting black chrome wheels and then getting black chrome SS badges on the car to match but I've changed my mind. I don't see anybody with black chrome tho

    They belong on '60-70s or mustangs IMO
    i do however like the comp. grey TTs on black...just my opinion tho. Its ur choice
    i kinda like the thriple black with black rims with drilled rotors and red calipers

    oh and i DONT wear skinny jeans or baggy jeans around my knees.
    all these old farts like to get TA's and camaros and put the same type of wheels on their cars that they had on their hot rods when they were in highschool so they can relive the glory days lol!! it's called a mid life crisis hahaha

    lol everyone has opinions on styles...its not racial. but these forums can get quite offensive.
    its your car. do what you want. its your own taste that counts.
    and you dont have to be old to appriciate the classics
    and you dont have to be young to have good taste

    there's no way anybody can say that smoothies or TT2 look better than those wheels or any newer style wheel. old style wheels belong on old cars. period

    well if you think about it...the 1999-04 Mustang Gt wheels look alot like the TTs and Smoothies.
    i would go with chrome over black. but gunmetal over chrome (for a black car)
    but basically i am looking for either the Z06 C5 or Z06 C6 style.
    i vote no rivets...
    and the camaro above looks great IMO

    I'm with ya, I like the Z06 C5 wheels personally. To say they are overdone is a bit outdated. Ya they were used alot back when these cars were new and the C5 Z06 first came out. But that was almost 10 years ago and quite honestly you just don't see alot of Z28/SS 4th gens running around as much now. And I rarely ever see one anymore with C5 Z06 wheels nowadays.
    My thought on them are,,,they were popular for a reason back then, because they looked pretty good on a 4th gen, and I'm willing to bet they still do.

    They somewhat mimic my factory 10 spokes on my SS as far as appearance with slight differences, so if I were to do something a bit different than stock, I'd probably go with those as well and not worry about what others think. It's your ride,,,,,personalize it.

    I would honestly take my polished TTII's over those.

    Click for full size


    Are they 'played out?' Of course.
    They look right at home on my car.
    Not my first choice, but needing the 17x11 they were the best price option. Plenty happy with how my car looks.

    MMMM so much for black wheels and TTII's.... lol I get compliments all the time even from guys in 50's-60's at gas stations. Anyways thats not the point. Chrome C5 ZO6's would look really good. I love those wheels like 01 ss said, got any you have absolutely decided on?

    I've searched this thread from top to bottom, and I didn't see a racial comment anywhere.

    Are you serious or are you just making a joke ?

    I didn't make a post like that to make a joke. You can't see the comments, they were removed.
