    Goes to show that no matter what car they're on, black wheels always look crap. Truly gorgeous exterior paint, though.

    Yep, a bit “Halfords” that look. Would look loads better with an OEM wheel design even if from a different car.

    That's how the sidewall is :) bit stretched to clear the inner fender...

    The wheels are just for the winter while my split SSRs are being refurbished. I don't like them either but they'll do for now.

    Totally crashed through Halfords and max power head office ;)

    Ah ok, was just in case :)

    I do 'love' the crashed through Halfords look, always gets a smile! Surprising amount of cars on the road with all sorts of tat still stuck on to them.

    It hasn't really crashed through Halfords haha.

    The wheels don't suit and are temporarily but who cares, it's winter.

    Usually the car looks like this -;

    I think they look alright on the Nissan Skyline R34 Z-Tune - depending a bit on the bodywork colour (though they still look better slightly off black).

    Get out :D

    The issue with black wheels is that they hide the actual design of the wheel. I don't mind gunmetal or dark silver but black is not my thing. I did run flat black wheels on my s2k and it looked alright on a bright day but invisible on the normal cloudy day..

    Sorry, I didn't mean your car! I meant the typical small car with stupid big wheels, sun strips, exhaust tips, etc!

    Design plays a big part and I’m normally in the camp of black wheels don’t work but for me on my 911 and the Ferrari it simply did work and was also the best choice, maybe it’s a yellow car thing but my 911 was similar with a lot of black accenting and so it just worked.

    The design of the 458 wheels is so simple that the colour does not really matter as there is really no design to the wheels and as such not a great deal to hide but in natural light in real life to me they can be seen easily and for me the design seems to show on photos too, just the ocuk anti black wheel squad, bunch of racist. :D

    Yeah you can get away with black wheels on some cars. I do quite like them on your 458 not going to lie but I guess the overall "do black wheels look good" is ruined by the average BMW/Merc etc with black wheels look that you see every day.

    I didn't mind my s2k on flat black wheels or even Oz gloss that I ran temporary.
