idk about black rims i dont think theyll look bad at all, i just want a more unique car, my interior, well i love it i have it set up how i like it all painted with a nice radio just my exterior is just not as... unigue or clean as id like it and black wheels just seem such a small change in contrast to the blue

White wheels would look awesome, tint the tail lights, get tinted sidemarkers, color match the molding on the doors.

Color match the mirrors/caps, door handles and rear hatch trim as well.

Little things but will help


Also, svt/euro front/rear bumpers would help as well. I like the dark blue color too

OH, so go white wheels! I'm biased though...lol

I think silver looks great on the blue as well. The color looks incredible after a good clean and wax.
