Default Better in black. I'm sure you guys will like this a lot more..

I love the look of 2011 GT premium matte black rims (like the ones they have on AM..)
And I have to say, this looks a lot like them...somewhat like Saleens as well.

I've gotten a lot of criticism for my rims from you guys, lol.
So how do you guys like this?

With the correct tire fitment they will look good. Call me crazy, but I like the chrome better with a silver paint job.

Holy wheel gap/lack of brakes!

Car would look fine with those wheels/tires if you lowered it and put some real brakes in there. Looks like you've got brakes off a corolla

I think they look really good. Kind of ties the car together with the rest of the exterior mods. I can see a little bit of a wagon wheel look with the small brakes but only because it was pointed out and I was looking for it.

It's your car...you are making the payments, not us! You put on there what you like...don't be a follower. IMO, the black wheels are over rated...

I'm not so sure it's the color as much as it is the size and fitment. Just my opinion but I think the car would look great with some nice 18" Deep Dish Staggered Black Bullits with more sidewall.

...and therein lies the truth. The "fitment", filling the wheel arch etc, is all determined by the tire profile, offset and wheel type and size. Depends on what you want...

This is how I like to see the "fitment", but this requires an aggressive lowering setup and the correct wheel and tire combo:
