    Need an opinion guys

    Okay guys I need an opinion. Im throwing around the idea of getting some black or gunmetal wheels to use on my STi and going all black. The goldies are pretty worn (from normal wear and tear) and was thinking of using them as my winters. What do you guys think?

    I've mentioned this a few times here ...

    Wheels are some of the more aesthetically pleasing items on a car. The right wheels really make the car pop visually. Why hide all of that with the least visible color (absence of all color really)? I know black has become quite popular - I just don't get it.

    If you want the murdered Darth Vader look, go for it.

    why spend money on nice wheels that are black when you can buy steel black wheels for the same look?

    haha, love the continuity with the bridge...

    Personally, Im not a fan of the murdered look. Black wheels look pretty good on some of the other colors tho. Its kinda like a suit. Some black looks good together, but all black looks like a funeral...a gangster funeral lol.

    But as everyone always says on here...Its your car, do what you please. Also, you could use Forza to play with the wheel styles and colors and see what you like best (yea, i did just say that)

    Everyone has a good point. I havent actually looked just yet. Just something I was considering. I'm not sold on the murdered look. Just an idea I was toying around with. Just looking for something different. Like I said I may potentially use the gold ones for my winter set.

    Spirited that is an excellent idea. Didnt think of that.

    Okay another question to add to this. I am still looking at black wheels but I am also looking at some gold ones from XXR. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Ha! Im not afraid of you. Besides the black ones I'm looking at are the XXR 525s. They have a red accent on them so I wouldnt be copying you exactly.
