Default Black Wheels? Give me a break. . .

Everytime I see a ricer with black wheels, it looks like a set of winter steelies with no hubcaps. What's up with the whole black wheel thing anyway? White wheels are cool and so are some anthracite and gun-metal. I just can't seem to come to grips with black. Have I just lost my sense of cool or is it just and Alaskan thing?

its just a ricer thing they copied it from other ricers who take em off cause they think they go faster (no offense to you other honda drivers, i'm talkin about ricers )
i've noticed it a lot too.


white wheels are nice if it matches the car, white rims white side skirts and white rear bumper trim are not

I really like the white rims on a black car! Never understood that, but I try not to criticize other peoples cars too much, since I am sure alot of people think the cars I have done look stupid too.

I would have to agree that most people aren't striving to have a bad looking car, it just seems to happen. I think that part of the problem is that there isn't a way to try and buy until the mistake has been made. Pictures can give a good idea of what something will look like, but there's nothing like trying it on your own car first.

Getting back to the wheels, I'm guessing that we'll be seeing more colors in both wheels and tires as a trend over the next few years. Getting away from what are called the "traditional colors" of white, black, and everything in between. Gold was a natural take off from silver, but there isn't much available today beyond that. I'm thinking mostly aftermarket here. I don't think that the OEM's will go for something like this unless it's a gimmick car.

I was thinking of going with the purple set of rims because they make me faster. Winslow
