Opinions on black rims silver roadster

Hi,
I am thinking of having my stock rims powdercoated a matt black.

I am not into bling at all or busy wheels with lots of spokes or patterns.

I really quite like the stock rims, about the only other ones I have liked are the Volk TE37 black rims which seem to be pretty expensive whereas I can get my stocks powdercoated for about 50 bucks a wheel.

I have a 2004 silver roadster and think the black rims would look great on the roadster, a brute look. I have seen a photo of an Aston Martin which is sort of what I am thinking of, will try to attach it.

I would really appreciate any opinions.

I'm not much into all black wheels. I think a simple wheel with a gunmetal grey or black center section with a polished lip would look good on your 350Z.

How about the 2006+ stock 5-spoke wheels powdercoated? I like those better for factory wheels.

You might be right the 2006 are good looking wheels, will try some photoshop and see what I think of them black.

This is what I ended up doing, Bronze Work Emotion with a +20 offset on all corners.

The block of ground is for sale, its 200 hectares on the coast in North Queensland, Australia. Most of the coconut trees arn't real, Speilberg was making a movie at our farm and they were planted for that, they have since been removed.

Not a fan of black rims honestly, especially on a silver car

Thought of gunmetal? Kind of a compromise
