This is what i think looks best:
- 5% tint all around
- gloss black grills
- black reflectors
- aero lip
- black trim
- black lower mesh grills
- (soon to be windshield tint)

I JUST NEED A DROP!

I've seen those wheels done in black accents between the spokes, with the spoke face still silver, that looks pretty good I think.

Black wheels are soooo played out. They look like a test mule or cheap black steel wheels from a Nissan Versa that needs hubcaps.

Played out or not, I'll still rock em in the summer, even at 37. I can't have these wheels any other way. They came from the factory that way besides

Black wheels are a case by case basis. That style wheel though, should not be in black. I also don't agree with blacking out or tinting tail lights. Why make it more difficult for people to see you?

You car looks gorgeous as it is. It looks ricer in the "murdered" all black look. It would be criminal to paint these beautiful machined wheels.

Yeah, I'm gonna leave the wheels as they are, but I'm painting the front grille matte black within a few days.

Just bought plasti-dip!!!
