    Only way it could work is to colour match them to the body work, then IMO it'll look to much.

    Stick with the alloy look.

    my mate just had his wheels done on his stilo. Im very impressed seeing some refurbed wheels in the flesh. I can get you a picture if you want.

    Seriously I think you need gloss though !! One thing i wil say also is, if you get dark wheels, your tyres will stick out awful unless you use tyre black stuff.

    I'd personally never go for black wheels. Don't rate them at all. Unless of course they were dished 3 peice split rims with dark/anthracite centres and mirror polished lips.

    Nope, black wheels on a black car just don't float my boat I'm afraid.

    But as has been said millions of times before on this site, If you like 'em like that, you have 'em like that!!
