check out the motegi lc5 in teflon if you mix between nasty stuff and the street. sooo easy to clean. all you need is a hose and if you dont have one, just a rag will work.

The choice is yours. Anything goes with black. Personally I am a sucker for bronze rims, although they are gettting a bit played out as of late. Black on black always looks tuff. Just go with something you like, not what others think look good.

ESmooth that look is HOT! I am looking at these wheels for my black wagon. What suspension are you running? I think the StopTech brakes help complete the hotness.

Thanks! I am on RaceComp Tarmac II coilovers but for that pic I was about 1-1/2" lower than normal and the car was basically undriveable. It rubbed and scraped everywhere but it sure looked good

18" SSR's (very light and sexy)

I love the classic black on silver look, that is why I'm going with the spec-c's.
