Its not played out. It is aggressive. If your car is stock than it will look crappy. You need to have a bunch of other matching mods that are pretty aggressive to pull the look off.

Don't like the look at all....

Its been played out, its too taste specific and only appeals to the boi racers.

Played out in real life or on forums. As some of you have noticed we may seem like a big whole on the forum but on the streets I dont noticed any modded BMW's at all let alone Matte black wheels.

Great point^ but if you go to any local car meet....anything matte black is cool (most of them are under 25)

When done right, it still looks good. It depends on a lot really, including what color the car is, what design the wheels are, and what other mods are present.

Sorry, but all black wheels look like you are rolling on spare donuts when you are driving! Especially if they are mate black...

Only one exception, and barely an exception: black wheels with big fat silver/chrome lip and bolts.

Otherwise it looks like you are rolling on steelies!

^^foreals and for shizzles... I got a headache and almost fell asleep once looking at black wheels trying to figure out the brand and model.

I never liked the black wheel look at all, especially matte. Don't like black centers with chrome/polish lips (or time attack style color schemes) either.
