What do you guys think of the all black rims?

I like them, but they seem to small, too much rubber :0

I like the slighter color for your car. You've got the SSEi badge that is silver, back up lights and head lights that are lighter colored....I think the lighter rims tie it all together.

You'll have to call around and find a local place. They will need the rims un-mounted from the tires, and most of the work will be to rough up the chrome to get the powder coat to stick.

A friend of mine got his done for $200 for his aluminum GTO rims here in Cleveland, he had the tires taken off before which is $25/rim at a local garage here, obviously there is some downtime if you don't have a spare set of rims or another car and 4 jack stands
