Sick of black wheels, wheres the gray?

The whole black wheel thing is so yesterday now that the factory has black wheels. I'd love some ATX 195 Cornice in matte gray or even silver but alas there is no such animal. There are a bunch of good looking wheels out there but the finish is mostly black. Am I the only one sick of the black wheel trend?

Depends on the vehicle to some degree. Some colors look good with black, others not so much. Depends on how the vehicle is set up as well. A vehicle that is set up strictly for business, with no cosmetic mods at all, looks good with black wheels. I agree that it is time for some other color choices like grey, argent, teflon, tungsten, whatever you want to call it.

Meh, once you go black, you never go back. Racists!

Plain ole Pro Comp 7069. I like them, but, the OP is right. Kinda get tired of the homogeneous black wheel.

I've often wondered if you could just bead blast that black crap off. But then most are powder coated I believe so that may be an issue.
