Black on black?

Okay I am about to buy some new rims, but I am worried that the black on black won't go well with each other? Does anyone have black on black here and likes it? where did you get your rims?

Yeah, ive just always been big on black/black haha I guess we just have different looks. I dont like bright chrome wheels.

Would that look good on my car tho?

I'm not a big fan of those wheels, but have seen black on black with a slight chrome accent on the wheels like what I have on my GTP. I dont like the look of the fake two piece wheel.

Mine's black on black, But I added a red strip to the wheels the define the size, The black on black makes the wheels look so much smaller. Here's a pic.

Black on black will look fine as long as you do something to break up the black. i.e. a color stripe on the lip, a polished/chrome lip, something.

Left a 421RWHP 2004 GTO, but honestly loving the G6 GT coupe!

Past Pontiacs
87' white Firebird(sold)
01' green Grand Am SE2(traded for the 03')
03' orange Grand Am SC/T(totaled)
04' blue GTO(traded for the G6)

Current Pontiacs
00' tan Montana(I swear, its the wife's)
06' black G6 GT Coupe

Black on black is sweet, you just need something to break up the monotony. Like a chrome or colored lip, or get a rim that has
black and maybe gun metal spokes.

Its done. Re-painted the calipers again (red). Thought about yellow but decided to stick with what was on originally.


Hopefully getting some lower springs soon as well. Let me know what you guys think.
