Admittedly I am more viewer to this site than particpant, I thought I'd seek attention by showing my new wheels. Moved up to a 19x8.5 Front and 19x10 Rear. Never gone with a "colored" wheel before, but the matte black is growing on me.

Im not normally a fan of black wheels but with that color and the mouldings and the grill being black it looks very nice. Very sporty

Looks great! I am getting my stock wheels refinished this winter and I am torn between gloss black and matte black powder coat... I will also have a blacked out grille and smoked clear corner lenses.

VERY nice! I actually love the look of black wheels on sterling. Great choice of spoke design also. Are those VMR VB3s?

What tires did you go with?

You made a good choice. ;)

They are VMR VB3 wheels and the tires are Nexen N3000 tires. I have had a few sets and al have preformed very under agressive driving conditions.

Very nice. I am in the process of doing this to my car with all 9.5s.

The "black" I picked is called "Sterling Black" too! It is just off black with a little fleck.

I really love those VMR's. I feel like your car is just light enough to pull off dark wheels, but it looks great. How are those 9x10's working out?

I guess I will be in the minority, but I don't like it. I think sterling is the best color out there, and to me the black wheels detract from the beauty of it. I think those wheels finished in silver would be the bee's knees on your car.

I beleive it is the other way around the black wheels contrasts with the color of the car and brings out the beauty of the car

I use to run matte black wheels on my CB and it looked really good and aggressive.
