    Just fitted the wheels I picked up on Wednesday and love the way it makes the car look.

    Dark wheels don't work a lot of the time, but silver is in my opinion one of the colours that does. Red with black wheels for me is a complete mess.

    I wasn't convinced my grey wheels would work with blue, but was pleasantly surprised. Any darker and I would have taken them off again.

    It looks ok, but I think black wheels look better on green, red or orange cars.

    IMHO !

    I've got black nut caps and think its a good idea if you have silver nuts.

    Yes its definitely the nuts
    Liam's wheels show that Black nuts finish the wheels off IMHO sorry Mr-P
    Lovely Coupe Liam, with the black trim the wheels really compliment the car

    Black definitely not on my list of choices for the whole wheel but if I could get something like the old " alleycat " style and paint the centres black with really bright aluminium rims - now that's a different story.
