I have the performance pack wheels in the nickel luster I hope to soon be swapping out for something new. If you get up to KC, they may be available soon.I am 62, and I guess I am really old school...I would love to find a nice set of modern wheels that had at least a little bit of a lip to them...I am not a fan of everything being right out to the edge of the wheel...just doesn't look quite right to me...I have an 18 and my wife has a 16...I swapped out her grey wheels for some like mine...I keep leaning toward the Performance Pack wheels in gloss black and staggered fitment, but then again, I like wheels a little lighter in color too...decisions, decisions...If someone has a couple of sets of Performance Pack wheels that they would like to gift to me, let me know...LOL Trying to make ends meet and buying car parts is not a good combination...
I have the silver PP wheels on mine. I love the way they look. They are a pain to scrub brake dust off. If they offered a black PP wheel with the face machined and polished that would be awesome. I think the current blackout phase doesn’t lend much to the looks of the car. Motorcycles have also gone this route and some of them are drab and butt ugly although cheaper to manufacture and the stealer can sell you an “upgraded blackout package” for even more cost.OK, so there is no separate senior folder yet (and maybe there will never be), but this question is targeted at 50 and up owners. Do you like black wheels? It's fairly obvious they are more popular with the younger crowd.
I did not like them at all when they first became prevalent, but they have grown on me somewhat on cars in certain colors. (Mean look with magnetic.) Even so, I would only consider gloss black because you know when they're clean. Also, mesh style or any intricate spoke pattern seems pointless since it's difficult to see except up close. Black PP1 wheels come to mind. In most cases a charcoal or graphite will show the spoke pattern much better while still giving a darker look.
What do you think of them?
Since your post was quoted again . . .I did not like them at all when they first became prevalent, but they have grown on me somewhat on cars in certain colors. (Mean look with magnetic.) Even so, I would only consider gloss black because you know when they're clean.
I suspect I'll feel more and more like this as the years go by.Since your post was quoted again . . .
If I ever got black wheels, it would have to be in some non-glossy tone. Specifically so that the wheels don't look dirty, or as dirty as they actually might be.
Detailing a car is among my least favorite things to do with my cars, and doing wheels is by far the least favorite part of that. Knees and lower back always manage to remind me when I temporarily try to forget.
Could not agree more. Getting rid of the all black wheels was a top priority for me. First saw all black wheels in the early 80’s, a few decades before they were a thing and have disliked it ever since.As I posted earlier not a fan of all black, but i do like the Bullitt wheels, I think because of the silver/chrome'ish trip which breaks up the black of the wheel with the black of the tire.
