IMO spending a lot of money on black wheels makes no sense....as you can't see the detail anyway. You might as well put on a set of wheelbarrow wheels and paint them black

This reminds me of when the guy in the picture section compared any black aftermarket wheels to some crappy econo wheel with no hubcaps. Like really? I love my black saleens, black just looks really aggressive, and the mystery lies where you can can't really see them as well. /rant

If I got some really expensive black wheels, they'd have a deep dish out rear, 18x10 (or 10.5), and much smaller dish in front, maybe 18x9. Polished dish/lip. The staggered and deep chrome lip makes them look fancy.

I couldn't do chrome rims unless they were deep dish muscle style, those 19" ones look cleannn. However I like 18" for the better traction and smoother ride.

I think those gunmetal vossens are the best looking wheel you can find, but I think they're 20 inches... :O

My friend might be selling his wheels and tires off of his 2012 GT500 SVT. They are F - 265/40/19 R - 285/35/20 and are flat black.
