I like my black wheels, but I'm all about being subtle (as much as possible with this car) not flashy.

I've got 18" black OZ Ultraleggeras on my Grey/Gray 86. I think they look fine. My nuts are red though. :-)

The colour choice was secondary to the wheel choice though. Personally I think black wheels look good on Silver and Grey but that's just me.

I have had black wheels on every car (also mostly black) over 10 cars since 1993. Tell me more about how I'm a trend follower.

I guess that's better then blue balls.
