I need your opinion regarding rims!

First things first, this is a badass site with tons of awesome cars.

So I have a 2010 1SS with the RS package.. it's white with the flat black racing stripes.. tinted 5% all the way around.. and has standard 20" rims.

Now I'm thinking about getting the rims powdercoated flat black, to match the stripes, but I don't want it to look tacky. What do you guys think? Will it look sick? or nahhh?

Thanks

I say leave them stock. Black wheels are so over played.

Your car would stand out more with gloss white powdercoated wheels and a black pinstripe.

These are your best options as stock polished or chrome wheels don't look right on Summit White

Black would look sweet but its so damn hard to "picture" what you want to see on your car everytime you get into it/drive it! Good luck and don't forget this; you're still driving a badass car!!! I was behind one yesterday in traffic; its a cool/great/awesome feeling to be reminded how great a car you're driving!

So... polished, flat black, flat black with white pinstripe, flat white, or glossy white with black pinstripe... Thanks for narrowing it down guys!

Hahaha seriously though, thanks for the opinions!

I was kind of disappointed with the standard 20" in white on white when I saw pictures the other day even though that was my original plan (until white was "delayed") and I chose CGM.

Not the thread with white rims I remember but a photo any way;
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ms#post1975845

Go black, less upkeep too (and there is nothing wrong with polished/chromed on white btw).

If you have balls, go for a nice shade of gold/bronze... (like Hurst). That's my current plan (bronze) for my CGM once the funds are ready.

my vote is gloss white face, gloss black lip, white lip strip, gloss black rivets and flange. would look sick rolling down the road.
