i prefer the top ones, but i may be a bit biased. i dislike black wheels, and they also look like VMRs...

thanks for the input so far. they are vmr's. matte black. i know its hard to get the real effect of the black wheels on white car. my camera has a hard time of capturing both with such a different in contrast.

Thanks for the input guys!


gunmetal is a good option. still have some contrast which i like. I want to have two sets of wheels. living in the northeast i deff. need snow tires.

I was just trying to decide if i should make my black wheels my summer wheels.

I guess if i sold my rft tires and black rims I could get a good amount towards. 18 bbs ch-r with Hankook Ventus V12 wouldn't go with 19's not with boston roads!

If you go black youll be mistaken for the guy that plastidipped his wheels and lose all street credit and will only be praised by high ranked ricers.

I like the black ones! I'm sure they look amazing in person. You're right, photos don't do justice.
