You could go that route but sometimes it would just look too black. Maybe if you got some dark wheels you could go with the ones with a polished lip on it.

Do what I'm going to do when I get the money for mine... may be a while.. but still. Get the car black, the windows tinted as dark as legal, the rims black EXCEPT a red rim around the edge, and then paint your break calipers red. :D

Thats the scheme im doing with my ZX3, black, with black carbon fiber tyc tail lights, black projectors in the front, and black 17 inch wheels with the chrome ring around them. I think it looks super clean. Gold wheels dont look bad at all either, you know the color similar to the old imprezas

I am blacking everything out on my car EXCEPT the emblems and the wheels. Hah, I want people to be able to see my car at night, not 2 floating headlights! So far I have a 20% tint all around, and tinted black tail lights.

I would tint it about 35% max. I am definitely not a fan of black on black and black rims, to much overkill if you ask me. (referring to another thread I posted in a while back).

I got 5% on my back windows and I wish I didn't go that dark and I got a liquid grey focus.
