    Cts v rims or blacked out rims - help me decide

    First post everyone and thought I would get your feedback on which rims look better. I bought the car (2008 CTS4 with 75,000kms) with the black rims on it however I just picked up the cts v rims and tires today for a good price ($1200) and not sure which looks better.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Ok I may be biased, but I much prefer the V wheels. Since my car is the same color, albeit a coupe, I just don't think the blacked out wheels look as good and the V wheels make the Red car Pop.

    For some reason the V wheels to me make it look like my grandpaps car....... Im usually a big fan of those wheels but the car color and the polished wheels dont do it for me.

    Re: Cts v rims or blacked out rims - help me decide

    Thanks for the responses so far guys. With the V rims on they are much louder from a road noise perspective as well as when braking ( a bit confused on the braking part, must be the rim material differences?). I love the width of the tires on the v rims (black rims only have 235/50/18's all way around) and are likely the main differences from an increased road noise perspective.

    I have the v rims on it now and will run with them for a bit to get local feedback as well.

    I have to admit I'm torn between this decision. The v rims are very "blingy" and do pop on the car however the blacked out ones are very stealth and aggressive looking (which I also like).

    Keep the comments coming as I still am not convinced yet...txs.

    The black would look a lot better with a machine edge and highlights.
    As is they look to industrial like something you'd see on a Taxi. Search for a better design IMO.

    I happen to like the dark wheels. No one has a look like my Coco w/gold metalflake rims. I won't often ask for an opinion on this stuff. Some will love and most will hate. Do what ever makes YOU happy.

    Black out wheels and black out the rest of the chrome on the car.
    Sweet ride. Congrats

    I like the V rims just because they are OEM and will likely keep them and sell the blacked out ones. If I get sellers remorse I will plastidip the v rims black and put a matching red strip on the rim edge. If I get the itch to go back I can strip them and go back to original.

    I like the idea of going all black and red too shmiddy...maybe do this when I dip the v rims.
