*waits patiently for the search button slam*

Wait... was that it?


EDIT: Now I feel bad for doing that. You should look through this sticky thread first, there's several black tC's in there with custom rims.

Personally, I don't care for black rims on black cars in most cases. There are a few that look really nice though. I particularly like jlbracero's friend's black tC that has black rims with a polished lip... very nice, and a sweet tC.

Hope this helps more than the search button slam.

Black on black is aggressive looking. You need something else there to break it up. Black 5zigen FN01r-c's with the polished rim are perfect.

id suggest looking through some ADR rims. they have a process that they call HMC, or "high metallic chrome". when i had purchased my rims, they sent me the wrong ones and they were VERY nice. it was called HMC gun metal. it looked like tinted chrome. i almost decided to go with them rather than the ones i had purchased. good luck with your search man.

speak for yourself. if i rolled in a BSP i would do what moriarty is doing - make everything black on it, unless i could find something darker.

It's not fully black though - he's got the polished rim.

They have these in 18 x 7.5 with 42 offset and 17 x 7 with 40 offset (both 5 x 100).

$176ea for the 17's, $246ea for the 18's.

I think there's a pic of an FM tC with these in silver... I'll look for it.

EDIT: Found it:

YStC.com member Shep's ride. Pretty sure those are the same wheels (or a previous incarnation) in silver. Looks great, imo.

the 18" enkei's look good, but why would you pay an additional $1500 for rims which may end up being rather common on tC's? It's my understanding that $1500 can get you a set of pretty nice 18''s.
