    Black Wheels

    I figure a few of the forum members have black wheels on their SC. If so could you post a photo in this thread?

    I am picking new wheels and I think black looks better than polished on my plain white SC. But there are a few GLOSS black wheels that I think would look better than a MATTE finish. But not all wheel sites have a configurator to view the wheels on my car. Just trying to get a few visuals to help me decide.

    The two contenders are MB 14 (matte) and Focal F51 (gloss). Both are fairly conservative styles, same offset and backspace as stock. No change in tire size so going with a stock size wheel.

    Thanks for any photos!

    You're aware that the '90 SC Anny's came with stock black wheels, right? Or is that design not what you had in mind?

    I was aware of the factory black wheels but I don't like the appearance.
    However, I really like the black and aluminum wheels on the red SC - what brand are they?
    Thanks for the photos! A big help.

    I mentioned them because you said you wanted to stick w/stock size. You may limit yourself if 16" is a hard rule, tho. Lots of choices otherwise, especially if you swap hubs.

    Good luck.

    Damn.... I was really hoping that was before you had them widened. Right now I'm stuck between a 245/50 and a 255/45 tire on a stock height sc. Not sure if I'll be lowering it.
