Black rims on steel blue 323?

guys ive asked about 1000 opinions and its split 50 50....i finally decided the members of this forum could help me out best...would black rims (w/ polished lip) look right on steel blue? can anyone photoshop this, or send pics of any steel blue cars with black rims?

Thanks!

If you have a black out grill and black window trim I think it could look really good. What kind of wheels are you thinking?

I was running pss9's at the time that cost me $900 at the time through a special hookup. Wheels + tires cost me $2800. The drop was perfect on the pss9's. Here is another pic.
