Good DIY, but I've never been a fan of black wheels. Personally would have had them sandblasted and left them with a brushed aluminum looking finish. Good job though.

OK thats what i thought, but I guess it was minor and didnt unbalance the wheel.

well because it is ugly - for one - ahah

but recently black rims has become very popular for some reason recently.

this is my opinion so whatevers

I think the only cars that can pull of black rims are 100K plus cars - im sure some people have done it and it looks nice but that is just rule of thumb for me

Black is an interesting color - it gives the image of not being eye catching/flashy - but at the same time it is - like bam black rims - when i look at your car that is the first thing i see.

cars that can pull off black rims, vette (look like 100K cars - interior not really), 911s, Bentley, and high end Benz -

Hard to tell, the pics are so small. Get some higher res pics so we can see some detail.
