Question Anyone else hate this?

I hate seeing any type of car with black rims. Silver or chrome or something would look way better. To me, black just makes it look like you took the hub caps off trying to be cool.

I personally do not like it but it is all a matter of personal taste. If they like it then I guess that is all that matters. I know what you are talking about though and would not choose to do this to my car.

Have you ever seen the $200.00 car with the $1000.00 rims?
That is worse.

I just sold my Steeda 17x7 wheels and am going to sell my ADR phase II's soon also. My next set of wheels will either be a set of 17x7 superleggeras powder coated gunmetal or a set of black ROJA's, duff man, oh yea.
