Black does look good but the can't stand the glossy oem wheels, they are getting dirty real fast. I'd go for satin black, champagne gold or antrecite wheels

I like me some glossy black wheels. They are glossy when clean. Then are matte when dirty. I like me some matte wheels. Rinse and Repeat.

Fitment was great, 99-100%

You do have to press them on pretty hard in order to make the tabs sit good but other than that i'm really happy with them
