depends on the style of how it will look, an all black wheel wouldn't look right, but the black inside and the chrome lip or polished looks smooth on a black car with chrome window trim. maybe a paintshop pro here can whip you up something if you know what wheel your looking for

NO. Two words.. Brake+Dust. Unless you want to wash your wheels twice a day.

That and it would look like sh!t.

My opinion doesn't matter though.
