      LOL You actually created a poll for it. I'm going to laugh so hard if you lose, although my guess is that it will stay about 50/50. Black wheels of any kind seem to be an all or not thing. You either like them or you hate them. Just my .02 cents.

      Hahahaha and I shall laugh if you do and I'll continue to give thomas crap about it just like I do his quad rounds. Its all personal preference and six months ago I'd have been right behind you in liking them. I don't know what changed my mind, I just know I'm no longer a fan.

      Black face polished lip and silver cars are no. This is an undeniable truth of the universe.

      Personally, I think black wheels look pretty good...



      I also have anthracite wheels for my blue S4 and did have some charcoal with polished lip for the white rabbit race tires.

      I vote yes for this reason:

      I feel your pain about the moobs as I have developed some of my own. Chicks dig them.

      And I'm glad your're here on the vortex to ease the pain for such a slow posting boring wannabee hipster crowd.

      Chicks love tits. I'm sure I cause a whole bunch of other kinds of pain.

      And that car is awesome, specially in person, but I still don't like black wheels.

      And.. I got to say I like the face a little darker or colored but not really black as much. I know anything is possible and can look good in the right place.

      This was just me Dave and Nems bull$hitting about black face wheels. I think Nems car looks good with his rattle canned BBS RA on silver. So I made the thread to try and prove a point. And I failed.

      How about this for a dark face, yeah it looks fantastic. I'll steal it for a sec then take it down.

      See for me, dark face wheels look good. Like the gunmetal BBS LM's they make look awesome but wheels are to big to be black unless your going to murder out the car, which looks stupid to me. By the way Lincoln... I win.



      That audi is sweet.
