I'm in the minority. I'm not a fan of all black wheels. But if it's workin' for YOU, then THAT'S what's fantastic.

I think it looks pretty menacing! If I could critique one thing, I'm not big on the borla sticker on the back fender. My eyes went straight to that when I looked at the second picture.

I'm with Nuke. Not a fan of the flat black. And thats coming from a guy with a blacked out car (minus the rims). Maybe its my poor *** upbringing but it just reminds me (not you specifically just.. in general) of a spare tire.
Gloss black, hyper black or either of those with a polished rim. I think that would look better. BUT... to each their own and thats just my opinion.

Hot damn that's a great looking ride. Makes me so anxious to grab my next mustang so I can black it out.

like Rocket said, I too am not a huge fan of that sticker on the fender. Besides that, looks damn near perfect.

Where did you get those rims? I really like the way the look and they are more uncommon than bullitts. Thanks!

Oh, and they look awesome on your car!

I dig it if you go get a can of dip glossifier and apply that now.. Not a big fan of completely blacked wheels, but am a fan of 5 spokes - sexy sporty..
