I don't like them, but that's just my opinion. There are very few cars that look good to me with dark rims.

If you want to set apart, maybe white?

Maybe its just me, but those pics make the rims look darker than I remember them being in person. Then again I have only seen them once so what would I know. Oh well I don't think it looks bad.

chrome is too expensive, I would just buy new rims which I cant afford.
I want something that is clean, but not too stock.
Something that stands out a little more.

where they originally silver?

if they where ,you should have just painted the inside and lift the lip of the rim silver, give it a better distinction so people wouldn't think its dirty

They look to dark. I would go a little lighter, but just my opinion.

Started to paint them white, they look ok.
But they now dont match the pearl paint on the car...its a lighter white.

Maybe Ill just go back to silver.

White is a hard color to get the graphite look to look right with. I'm not going to say I like it, but I don't dis-like it either. Kinda in the middle you know?

I used the same duplicolor paint on both sets of LS wheels - the ones on the LS, and the ones on the Cougar.

Because the LS is black, the dark silver wheels look alot better than light silver. Am not sure if I like the dark silver on the blue Cougar yet (pic not updated yet).

Other than that - your Cat looks good :).

If you got rid of the bra, lowered it, and tinted the windows it would look great

I like the pearl.
Not many cars with that color out there.
And the paint on this car is in outstanding condition.

I dont like the white wheels, im not going with them.
They are going back to factory silver color.

Here is a picture of my 1994 Mark in opalesecnt white with similiar wheels, but quite a bit lighter. I really like them, but no one else seems to. Oh well.
