tough call... probably without the centercaps based on pics alone, but in person, it probably looks better with centercaps

^Yes, they are sportdesign wheels, powdercoated by another member on this forum (ArizonaTurbo, iirc... had a bit of drama with him over the wheel, lol)

Anyways, yes, I have another set of center caps I have been meaning to take apart and paint black. Probably not gonna be another couple weeks, tho, seeing as how it took me well over a year to have these mounted and installed, haha.

I vote for without or if you want them on, blacked out.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

I can't really tell whats going on but I think the one that looks all black would work. Or do what everyone else is suggesting and plasti dip or even paint the center caps
