the colour contrast wouldnt be that noticible, if you think bodycolour is the way to go then go for it

I'm not really into chrome but the pic you posted of the wheels chromed out looks really good. I'd go with that or rim 3.

They are K29s, they call the finish polished and anodized black. They're probably in the same price range as HREs and I-Forged.

Awsome looking wheels!

Aren't I-forged considerably cheaper than HRE's?

Never heard that they're going out of business..hmm...maybe?
For a company that sells "forged" wheels for a VERY reasonble price, you would think that they wouldn't.

I heard i-Forged quality isn't up to par with HRE or other wheel manufacturers. People have been having problems with the wheels peeling after being only 2 months old. I def wouldn't pay that much $$$ to see my wheels peeling after a month
