    These are stock wheels, just painted black. I am not sure if it looks scary, police cruiser-like, or attractive with the black paint...
    I am helping to sell the car on E-bay for my mechanic, so I shot the pictures this morning.

    very nice TR. looks like you did a good job painting them. It takes balls to paint the factory whells. Looks good though.

    Oh, man, that looks sick...! The only thing i would change is the center caps on the wheels; i'd paint them black, too... Otherwise the car looks awesome...

    Yeah, I'm with N's. I'd lose the "dog dish" hubcaps! Otherwise I like it!

    I think the wheels are very un-attractive. That's as lightly as I can put it.

    Sorry have to agree, it has cheapened the car IMO. And the hub caps look very out of place.

    Not my taste.

    The wheels are "ok" but I would always prefer plain stock wheels. In other words, Ive seen much worse :)

    I don't mind the black wheels. What really bothers me is chrome but to each his own.

    I think stock or optional (Ferrari Modular) wheels always look the best on F-Cars. If it came from the factory or is offered with an upgrade I don't think you can beat it.
