Sweet birthday present!!!

That's a tough decision. ALL those colors would look sweet on a black car. I'd probably vote for gold or whatever the lighter grey color is out of gunmetal or steel grey.

The gunmetal is very dark, so unless you want that "vader" look, I'd say get the steel grey. Silver is to generic, and gold is too bling IMHO.

arron has a point but, I think the emotions only come in 2 colors....that bronzy color and some other one.

Question tho, are the hyperblack torques the same as the gunmetal ones??!??

I kinda like those hyperblacks.....get some stoptechs later on and that would perform very well while looking nice at the same time

Since I can't get new rims, you suck!

That being said, get some Rota Slipstreams. Why roll around in those heavy Torques when you could get rims that look nice and actually give you a slight performance increase via their 13.5# weight?

My 2 cents and I hate you.

WORK Emotions are heavier then the Torques http://www.worksuperwheels.com/wheels/emotion_cr.html by 2lbs each. Why Pay more for heavier rims???

Work Emotions are forged, but nobody can or will get them. Instead, they buy the Emotion CR or Emotion CR KAIs, which are cast. So even people with the Emotion CR or KAIs are still posers, so I say go for the cheapest way to be a poser possible

OH I'm not saying that, I think Rota are good rims. They just don't have Big name like VOLK, or ADVAN, etc....... Plus the roads out here are not like being on a race track, They are more like being a Dirt Road, so I would PISSSSSSSSSSSED off if I spend a lot of money on Rims and The ****ing roads out here ****ed them up..... that is my view on this......


I really like the Steel Grey, I'm palying in Photoshop to get a idea what they would look like......

I like the hyper black as well. I would go with the hyper black aswell. IMHO
those are the rims that I want aswell, and the color that I want. I have a WRB so, but it is up to you it is your car.

I'm thinking the hyper black or the grey steel, and getting the gold Brembo, or red AP Racing(6pots) under them

I think it would look sharp with the all black and have the color on the brakes, but that just me........I'm almost done with some Photoshop Pics, more to come

the Hyper black isnt real black. it is like a really nice shiny silver with a hint of black at different angels. I used to have them on my black civic/ not the torques though. I mean hyper black rims, it looked sweeeeeet.
