I knew when I bought this car BLACK wheels was in the near future, so I finally broke down and did it...

Thanks to Bob at House of Wheels, I got some new wheels!

I'm not usually a fan of black wheels, but they look great on your car.
However, the black rear brake ducts would have to grow on me.

I guess I am just an Old ***, but I do not see the attraction of Black Wheels, " Murdered Out " cars, or Flat Black paint..

other than the Fact that any Kid with a Spray Can, can make his Car " Cool " ..or " Hot " or what ever the word might be these days

which simply proves my point that it is " unCool " ..and looks like DogFuk

if Your old enough

Typically I really despise black wheels. THe beauty of the wheel disappears and you end of with homogeneous "blob" in each wheelwell. However, with Torch Red and in the light photographed, that looks pretty cool.
