Black rims...

Does anyone like black colored rims? Or dark grey rims? I do know, they look great on BMW's.

for future reference, they're really called "wheels". "Rims" are the outer part of the "Wheel". And yes, I like them. A lot.

I really love gun metal/flat back wheels... They can make just abt anything look significantly better.

I like gun metal better than an all black wheel.
Sometimes i feel like a black wheel ends up blending in with a car and you can't really appreciate the detail of the wheel when its black.

Black can look decent on certain colors. I think they tend to look decent on white cars. For a black car, gold colored wheels look best.

well, personally, it depends on the color, if the car is..say...red, blue, etc, i would perfer white wheels...on a black car, black wheels are a definate yes...and on a white car, you will only look good with chrome colored wheels. thats my 2 cents on the subject
