I think the black lugs will look good after you get some tint,
I guess you could get the black ones and some tint and try em out and see what you like better.
I could probably PS it for you.

(glad to see the new forum section I made getting some use)

I feel like they can solidify the look of a car, and depending on the wheel design, make it more aggressive or class it up

I think it toughens the car up a little bit, that and it's a nice contrast to all of the impalas around here with chrome 20's

are you saying negative things about my chrome 20's?

I think it is more of a personal preference. Some cars look good with black rims and some don't.

I like Burt's car but I would not trade my rims for his.

J/k

The car looks good man.

Thanks man. I'm not knocking your wheels, I'm just saying that EVERYONE around here is for big wheels and HID's. Very blue HID's... that, and their cars are usually pretty beat. Yours look good Stephen

Yeah, I painted it. It needs a little more polishing, but it's basically done. And of course I'm the girl in short shorts, that's not my girlfriend or anything
