I like black wheels as long as they have a chrome rim to break it up, too muck otherwise in my opinion

Black with a diamond-cut rim looks nice with a white car. My car is diamond white, and came with Anthracite 10 spokes, and in my opinion the colour combo just didn't work. Black wheels work well on my car because of the black panoramic sunroof and glasshouse, and carbon bits. On all white car? Hmm. On balance, yes as long as rims are diamond cut. Let's face it, white is hardly a low profile colour anyway, is it?. It is a bit chavvy, but so are AMG saloons anyway - I can live with it. On a regards E350 it might look a little odd.

Alex

I hadn't really thought abut a colour change before. I have seen a few white cars with black wheels so I thought I get a few opinions. I don't want to limit my market when it comes to selling the car on. So all opinions appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Gunmetal for me ,never liked white car with black wheels.

So after much contemplation and input from the lads on here. I didn't do either. I had such high quotes for refurbishment of my original wheels plus needing tyres I didn't bother. It worked out cheaper for me to replace with aftermarket alloys and tyres as a package. I know this will split opinion on here but what the hell. I still have the originals wrapped up and stored so nothing is irreversible. I have attached a picky be kind! I like them plus the 30mm H&R drop. She's all ready for the run down to Benz on the Green in May. Praying for sun shine.

I thought I liked black wheels but when I was last looking through a number of examples of a particular car, I found I preferred silver wheels on it.

As said - black loses the shape and style of the wheel.

They are made by Bola. I wanted a wheel that the correct offset is machined in not created with spacers. Bola make them to measure.
