TomcatDriver - You've got a point with the brake dust. It is a pain. The car can be reasonably clean but the wheels look very dirty.

All black wheels are an aweful fashion thing that is rapidly going away. Check all the videos covering the IAA in Frankfurt and you'll see 99% of the new models now have wheels with silver or polished edges and only black parts in the inside of the spokes and in the barrels.

I don't think that it's the color but the fact that Ford managed to design a 19" wheel that looks like a 17".

By making it black you basically mask this.

Yeah but this is just what the manufacturer's chose to display, this does not represent what the driving public wants on their cars.

I agree that they may be a fad and may work their way out of popularity, but the manufacturer's role... well they don't have a role in setting what the public wants. The wheel color at the show is likely picked by what pairs well with the car color... they are trying attract attention.

It could also be as simple as black wheels don't sell in Germany.

I actually never liked black wheels, then I bought a comp orange GT and black just looks right on the car and will likely look right 15 years from now.

Usally the makers just present their top level rims on the cars. So with the Mustang they of course show the new premium package 3 & 4 wheels, because everybody knows the 10Y in black and silver we already got on the Mustang. There are cars where black wheels look awesome, and on other cars it can look stupid. I don't think you can say across all cars if people love or hate black rims.

Why is that retarded? European models are priced pretty high because we have no choice but buying a high equipped model. I would love to have the same options as in the US and just build a weekend car with the features I want

Sorry to clarify the digital dash should be included on every trim as an option, no exclusive only to the premium GT model in the US.

I'm not a huge fan of black wheels (have gun metal 18" on my EB) but I think the PP wheels on the 18 EB look MUCH better than the GT PP wheels. The GT PP rims just look old to me for some reason. I also think the 15-17 20" wheels look much better than the new 20" wheels.
