    Black is so played out and a detailing nightmare

    The Satin Titanium set of wheels look great to me.

    I'm a huge fan of Forgline wheels and their FF3 wheels finished with Pearl Gray centers & Polished outers would look awesome on your Civic Type R.

    I voted Satin Titanium, but would do Bronze myself.

    Re: Satin titanium or black wheels?

    I voted satin titanium. Black wheels hide the design while sitting still and from a distance all you see is a black space where the wheels are supposed to be. Even when black wheels were everywhere I wasn't a fan.

    If you are looking for something really unique, I'd go with a subtle bronze or copper colored wheel. I've seen a few examples on gray cars which looked really good.

    Yes, I agree 100% that itís extremely hard to see the design of the wheel with black wheels. Lol itís a lot of money to spend not to see the design of the wheel unless youíre a few feet away!

    I am so glad that other people have the same opinions as me about black wheels, gloss black wheels in particular are not only hard to see the the design of but also almost impossible to keep clean.
