    Was considering the deep dish black with polished lip. Alternatively, am looking at polished deep dish or silver deep dish. All choices from oewheels. Just can't make up my mind

    I show you what chrome sawblades look like. I think a Grand Sport wheel would look nice as long as it has the black spokes and center with a well polished lip.

    Hello... I'm new here.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm on the fence just like OP is on this subject. I need new wheels for my 40th anni vette and I can't decide if black wheels really do compliment or contrast too much against the body color.
    I was thinking about black bullitt wheels (saw someone's ruby vette with chrome bullitt wheels, looked good) or Z06 wheels.

    I actually photoshopped my car with black Z06 wheels but it doesn't feel "real" so it's hard for me to decide.

    It's only a big issue because I actually don't like chrome all that much... I like flat or dark colors and I'm bored of the sawblades. I currently have the 50th anniv c5 wheels on which i love but they are not mine and will have to be replaced. I do want something new though
