@circatee, if you're thinking about increasing the black appearance of your wheels, you may want to consider using black Gorilla lugnuts, like on my wheels. They also offer the advantage of being a solid one piece design, without the outer metal "shell" the standard factory lugnuts have.

Lugnuts look good Robert, where did you acquire those "Shelby" center caps ?

Thanks, Ray. I bought those "Shelby" logo center caps from Amazon (what isn't on Amazon or E-Bay!) for under $20 for 4, as best as I recall. I believe there are a few different designs you can choose from, but I only considered ones that were at least partly metal/aluminum like mine, and not all plastic, like some being sold, for durability purposes.

Not shown in my picture, I also bought some black "Cobra" valve stem caps, metal/aluminum with an "O" ring, also from Amazon, for between $12-$15 for 4, if memory serves. My Shelby deserves the best!:)

Get the style of the silver wheels in black
Those silver wheels weigh in the neiborhood of 33 - 34 pounds, hence the change.The Variant wheels weigh 25 lbs each.

I hate black wheels but the only chrome on the car is the 5.0 badge and lugs. Go black and change badge/lugs to black.
I have the Ford emblem blackout kit but was waiting to see if I wanted black wheels or not. The Exhaust also has polished tips.

Another reason the black wheels look better, notwithstanding the polished exhaust tips, is that this green is very bright. The black wheels contrast better, and tone down the overall brightness to make the green seem just delightful.

I hated them when they came out on the '15 PP (kept me from ordering a PP that year) and they haven't grown on me since. I much prefer black chrome or anthracite, and even chrome on bright colors like orange and red.
