i said yes, but only cuz im curious to see what it looks like. i think gunmetal or black would look better, but i think white is a possibility.

i saw a new black cobalt ss with the like gunmetalish rims......so hot looking. I dont like the white rims on black. Unless you keep them real clean.

Too much contrast between white rims and a black paint job unless you have other white accents such as graphics to counter-balance the extreme difference btween the two colors. Just my opinion. There is a black SC2 running around base with a liberal helping of white graphics and has white rims. Looks pretty good that way.

I had a silver car with white wheels - stood out, but what a serious pain in the ass to keep the wheels clean - with aluminum or dark wheels, the back of the wheels (if dirty) aren't noticeable - not so with white - you have to clean the backs every time you wash the car - major maintenance....

do like a titanium finish or maybe a bronze like color same as on the volk wheels that would look real good in my opinion.

Sorry, black wheels just look like steelies to me, i'm not a fan. White rims on a black car on the other hand, i think that's hot! I'd love to see it!

This is a cav, but here's the idea, and i think it's hot!

I am thinkin about doing my wheels white, I have a blue car. Whats everyone else think about it? Jim those look really nice. Agreed though that white will be a pain in the ass to keep clean specially with all the brake dust our cars produce. Tomorrow is another project day for the Satty, hopefully start as early as possible and do my rims. Still not sure what I wanna go with either painting the spokes and center all black leaving lip polished and that little center cap silver or doing them all white. I'll easily be able to change it if I don't like it of course :D

It's not brake dust that bugs me, but chunks of tar and crap that stick to the backs of the wheels...LOTS of construction going on in the Philly area...
