I can't say whether I like them or not, but what I can say, is that it adds depth? If that makes sense, it sets off the blue more...

Know what I mean vern??

Ok.

Ya, its funny, Funny like a Clown.

take your pick. I think ford uses a lot of black in window moldings and plastic parts, I think it works. I have seen ford trucks do the same thing.

Whyats the deal with the huge diameter wheels? I just don't think anythig bigget then a 18 will work. Those in 18, probaly. I personaly think that that big is more for bragging rights than it is realy adding to the look of the car.

Oh yeah? Well there are two other guys in this post that I'm sure would like to put some money on that.

20's will work, hell, 22's will work. It's all about what you want to do. You don't put 20's on a race car...well, I'm going to, but they're not bling 20's. Anyway, these guys do what the like, no matter what anyone says so lets stop the BS.

hahaha, way to steal my black rim idea.... kidding man. i say stick with chrome.

Im kinda partial to the detensions though. used to have em in 18's...

the 20" detentions look wicked.

But honestly, who cares...

Do what you think looks good on your car.

And always expect some negative feedback, especially on here...

I agree that it makes the paint stand out more. Looks all right.

i personally hate those rims. Doesn't flow with any car i have seen them one (in person) and from these pics, the same applies.... if your going to go with black rims, you need to have some kind of black on the paint, i personally like the 2 tone....thats my next thing

i cant stand 2 tone even if there is a body line for it, that paint scheme looks to much like an old rolls-royce or a police car besides, if getting new rims requires having to paint the car to look right, then they arent worth it

I like the first ones, that is if you get some dark tint on that thing.

The second ones look like flowers, car would need to be pink for that.

I like the black ones. Paint from the top body line up black, and they'd be sweet, but even the way it is in the pic, I like it.

I dont mind the black rims and those might not look to bad in person with something not so lowriderish...but thats just me. IM planing on doing my Bird in DSG paint with gunmetal color 18in saleen replicas with polished rivets. Wont be done for months though.

Ok.
Thats exactly what I thought.

It really brings the blue out, everyone has chrome or painted aluminum anyway, why not try something else. After seeing the black with blue combination I might consider doing that to my car.
