not for me, sorry. Black and blue has to be done in the right shades. IMO. the blue is too light and it causes a flat contrast...

I think the blue model would go better with lighter colored rims like the silver ones.

x2, rather go aftermarket and spec them to what i'd prefer although I have yet to get to that stage. Might end up using the standard wheels as beater wheels.

I want to go with black paint and bronze rims. I think the black rims would look better on the other shade of blue that no one actually will get to buy.

Actually I think bronze would look better on anything then the black

I think they would look good with some other colors as well, but that is not to say that I don't prefer them on the black exterior paint color. To each their own I suppose.

I'm a big fan of black because it helps hide the brake dust. Plus, forged 19s will most likely be lighter than non forged aluminum 18s. If the pricing guide is accurate, what Ford is charging for the PS2s and forged wheels is a steal.

"Braking dust"? I've never heard of this before. What is braking dust?
