i think if you blacked out your headlights and lowered it it would look pretty good... but other than that i would keep them how they r now

I think black wheels on a white car look badass. I also think it might clash with the chrome handles and the new mirrors though

I agree with this statement. Black wheels look great on a white car, but with your "theme" I don't think they work.

negative. White cars cannot pull off black wheels.....UNLESS EVERYTHING is blacked out. (and even then it looks strange)

I have some factory ford 20" wheels painted flat black if you're interested. Can make a hell of a deal too.

i also think the black on white theme is pretty clean looking. if fact, thats what im planning on doing. but as previously stated, it would look good if you blacked out the headlights, tail lights, grille, tint, and door handles. since you have a larger vehicle you would need a little more black to balance the car (smaller cars can pull off the black on white theme a lot easier than trucks/suvs). also if youre going to do black wheels make sure they're aftermarket, not just stock painted... looks tacky.

i think if you blacked out all the chrome we'd be in good shape but seeing how that might get kinda expensive i'd just keep it the way you have it.

That's a matter of opinion...gloss black may not look so bad, but even then...Iunno.

If the bumpers were gloss black then maybe. But I felt flat black kind of brought together the black paint and the grey flat bumpers.

The wheels and tires are for sale with centercaps ...

i dont think that looks too bad but those also dont look like the stock wheels either. also good idea of showing the chrome lugs. brings out the crome headlights.

thats what i figured. looks good. but if you really wanted to stand out, in my personal opinion, you should gloss the wheels and murder (tint) the headlights and tail lights.

keep it chrome unless you have the money to get nice big 20'' black with chrome lip wheels. THEN it'd be good
