Ok my buddy is giving me a crazy deal on a set of RX8 wheels. What do you guys think? I'm thinking if i get them and after i've gone through this set of tires i'd refinish them in hyper black. The silver on the mazda wheels is a bit bright for my taste.

18x8 with +50 offset on 225/45/18 tires

Don't know if the center bore works (may need to be bored out to 70.1mm if too small or need hubcentric rings if too large), but I like the look.

no thats a photoshop. i used the same wheel for both the front and back, you can see a colour difference in the tires too and the lighting of the wheels is totally off. and if you couldnt tell from all that, the caliper is totally in the wrong spot.

if u paint them hyperblack, the wheels would get lost at a glance, meaning it would blend with the tires...and would look like black steel spare wheels, especially with no polished lip. My Ac tech had dark wheels on his NSX, he totally regretted it, swapped non black rims and was happy.

just my opinion(as per thread title). Since u'r not liking "bright", I'd suggest bronze or gunmetal.

thats weird... i have hyperblack rims and i think they look more like silver from far away than anything close to black.

that gunmetal color looks fire forget black I don't think it would look nice with those rims get the gunmetal and definetly not the silver it looks 2 much like a racer style in silver plus the gunmetal fits the color of the car already and that's iust sick
