    Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    Wow, the CGT wheels look really cool painted!

    Black CGT on eBay

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    Erm....not really my style, but for 450 grand you sould be able to get anything for your car!

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    it looks quite nice, but there is a bit too much black IMO

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant one!

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    Is here every car awesome? The car looks dangerous! This car could be the next "Knight Rider"!


    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    That looks wicked.
    The GT3 wheels would look great with that style as well.

    GT3 wheels are not big enough to clear those brakes...

    A bit too much?!?
    Jeez, this looks awesome!!! Really "stealthy"!
    They should try one in mat black, with little dark grey texts alon the rims, like "no step" and "remove before ride"

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    @Joost: When one is driving such a supercar, I'd think one would want to be anything but "stealthy" But yeah I know what you mean

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    LOL, Mike what you say is true, but I don't understand it.
    When I was at a porsche dealer once, there was a beeautiful blak 996 turbo... really awesome... it was like a predator, hiding to catch its prey... I love it, because I love cars that do look awesome, but don't scream at you.
    And then there were some customers, saying they would never buy it in that color, because the black hid he lines of the car...

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    SWEET RIDE!

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    @racerx: LOL! you joined rennteam ON my birthday last year

    @joost: I like black cars, but i think i have one too many, time for some contrast! but back to black hiding the lines of the car, it's true if there isn't enough lighting, but man if it's on a good sunny day it really stands out! what's the 2nd thing that will stand out the most on a black car? the rims! which is why i leave mine in it's plain silver-ish colour, makes them look much larger than what they actually are! so making them black kind of hides the car away - like you said "stealthy"

    here's an example with my 55!

    Couldn't agree more. Your black Merc looks stunning!
    Silver wheels and accents in crome/alu is just right for a black car with good lines like yours.

    In my opinion it goes like this:
    Dark car = light colored wheels (silver)
    Light colored car = dark wheels

    BUT - colur coded wheels with a polished lip can look good on a dark car and black on black can be "mean"!

    It doesn't happen that often, but in this case I'm true to my own teachings:

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    Grant,

    What I meant was a black GT3 would look great with the same paint job to its wheels.

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!

    thanks for the compliment bjornH

    Re: Awesome CGT with painted wheels on eBay!
