Go with a grey. Black wheels are so overdone...

Once you go black....

OK, is this really even a contest?

Go black young man! I have a silver 2003 FSVT with the black EAP wheels. I took off the Dark Argent (aka Grey) wheels and the car now looks meaty and agressive.

Whatever color you decide to go with, go with powder coating and a satin finish (v. flat or glossy).

If you want a snapshot of my vehicle to see what black wheels on silver body looks like, I'd be happy to send you one. Email me at tmgolden@pacbell.net

Trust me, you will not be disappointed with Black wheels.

Yes, in retrospect, I guess bronze would be OK. Especially, if one accessorized with a matching red, white, and blue cape and a gold headband!

And Jetrinka, I'm willing to bet you $5 that my UPS truck can beat up your UPS truck! ;-)

faster_than_u, OK I guess I could also agree that white would look good as well. I am also very proud to say that I am one of 'your 8%.' Rap music should only be permitted when injected into metalcore; otherwise, it's just trash.
