    Which look do you like?

    I just got some rims for my brougham and want to know what ya'll think. They are stock Impala rims powder coated black wrapped with 255/50ZR17s. I have been having the hardest time finding some rims and had to make a decision before the summer came. The tires are a huge improvement and were really needed to make this car stick. Take a look and see which one you like.


    This first one is what it looks like now. Its a lot of tire but I really need them.




    Here is what I was planning to do with it, paint the trim black which would match the all-black interior I have for it.


    Or do you not like either and think I should sell and find something else?

    The first picture is better. That black trim don't suit the car (imo). the black rims are nice. i would leave it as is or get some spoke rims or larger aluminum flashy rims. Just my opinion. nice ride.

    I think the black Impala rims look good, but the black trim makes it look like a police car (in a bad way). I'd say option A.

    I think those rims really make the car look mean. They look amazing. I don't really like the black trim idea though. Keep the rims.

    I'm glad I asked because I was thinking the black trim would of been more popular. Bigger pics:

    Lose the black on the sides and the rims....

    see if you can find some slightly understated rims in silver / grey....?

    I think the black rims look cheap. Find a set of steel wheels with wire hubcaps, sell the black wheels and pocket the difference.

    Beautiful Cadillac, it's a keeper.

    Only person the looks really mean anything to is the man in the mirror.. If i was in the mirror, it would be some Wires and Vogues if it fit said budget.

    maybe white-walls would look better?

    black rims with black walls just don't do it for me, sorry.

    The gray and white looks too boring and the black looks too interesting. Why don't you just take off the euro trim and make it look like a proper Cadillac.

    Re: Which look do you like?

    Thanks for the input so far. I have to admit, when I first put them on, I was like...NO!! But they are better than what I had on there, especially for the power of the 500. I put these on, bilsteins shocks up front and adjustable upper and lower rear control arms and it really cleaned up the suspension. The car feels much lighter and feels like I can take a corner doing 200mph. Before, I had the traditional soft sidewall 215/75s, they dont mix well with performance. Next I just need to get rid of the variable ratio steering box and I should be good.

    ditch the rims. get something in chrome or grey in 18 inches. they're nice rims IMO, just not in black.
