If you're going all black/dark/muted wheels I probably won't. But like you said, the overall look would be the kicker.

Not a fan....but hey, it's your joint.

Two dark colors with not enough of a contrast, IMHO and to add to the lack of contrast - dark colored wheels look like dummies or spare wheels.

I'm with you Sam. Looks incomplete. Not suited on a European car. Keep the matte black looks on Rat rods, old bombs and cars in work.

Keep it wet and deep offsets on all rear wheel drive cars!
