Too much black on the lower side of the car for my taste, but they do look nice!

Looks great, but I'm with Kevin, just a tad to much black. Do you have chrome lug nuts? If not that may help brake it up a bit.

Hehehe don't worry I won't touch your wheels. Ahh if only the stock car was fully built then we'd have something faster.
