Default New Wheels installed. Bring the hate!

Replaced the chrome stock GS wheels with some gloss black Forgestar F14ís. Looking for comments good and bad. Let me know what you think.

No hate here other than Im NOT a Piano BLACK wheel Fan...

Thinking your car would look better, classier, richer with REAL
FORGED WHEELS such as SIGNATURE, BC Forged or NES

Black wheels on red cars look good.

I Like it. Looks badass.

Are you finished modifying it? What about blacking out the roof and halo? Black headlights? Change the color of your rear spoiler to black?

Looks way better! Can't stand the look of chrome wheels.

Your car is now screaming for you to paint the headlight bezels black though. Will look so much better!
