What do you think of these rims?

Long time since I last posted which can only mean that it has been a while since I've made any changes to my FF. Current wheels on the car are the OZ Superturismo WRC wheels but to my dismay the clear coat started to peel after just two years. Not at all happy I sent OZ an email (with pics) and they told me they'll come fetch them. I was adamant I wanted the same wheels again, that nothing was going to change my mind, but then I saw these. Same wheel just in matte black. If I get a credit note should I make the change or stick with white? I do love the white so much.

White one white isnt something too bad...btw really nice focus. But idk how much you can tell by in person but in the pics your car color is alittle more creamy then the white wheels. It doesnt look that bad but at the same time it almost looks like a mismatched paint job. I really think the black version will look very nice, they'll match your other matte black trim piece and be a nice contrast with the rest of the car.

yea those wheels are really white! I'd need to spray the whole car to match them perfectly but then I would need to wear sunglasses just to look at it. I've spent hours trying to visualize the black, only problem with them is that they always look smaller and the rim detail normally gets slightly lost. Mixed reviews so far...

i like the contrast of the black wheels better. plus the black finish will hide the brake dust longer than white.

Lol, I think the white stays clean for about 50 kilometers, or 31 miles as most of you prob call it.

^^Thanks for that info, nice to know I now get to come home every day and clean my wheels when they go on in june. Anyways I think you should keep the white. It seems everyone is going black, or black with a silver rim. And personally I got sick of seeing it (it was bad in my town). I find white really unique on a focus as long as it goes well with the color namely red white blue and silver...

Kritter: I love your forum pic, I have the same one on my PC somewhere. I think that pic started my whole white on white craze. If only my car looked like that...I'm still aiming at the stars
