Question Black rims?

I have a black 2002 SLK32 AMG and I want to paint my rims black, but I would like to see a pic of someone that has done it already, so if anyone has a picture of a black r170 with black (or gun metal…) rims can you please post a link to the picture or post the picture on this thread? Also I would prefer the rims to be the AMG ones, if not thats ok. Thanks.

Hey, I found a 2002 SLK32 AMG that looks just like yours...except it has one black rim. Sorry, couldn't resist. I did a very quick PS on your car. The black turned out a little flat.

I have a black 350 and have wondered how a set of black rims would look as well. Decided I wasn't a big fan of black rims on a black car. Strange, because I love white rims on a white car.

Hope this helps a little.

IMO that's too much black.

Just noticed that the "body-color-painted only on the front wheel" look would match the van parked behind in the street.

How about a lighter shade of black....almost gunmetal?
