I'm not a fan for blk wheels on the e46. I think they only work on much sportier looking cars.

I generally don't care for 'em, but it depends on the car and style of wheels. I saw a black 6 with 20" black wheels with HUGE polished lips in the rear... looked sweet. I also like a silver 350z I saw with black wheels and big lip in the rear. The lips help a LOT, lol.

it needs to have a polished lip or something around the lip, a pure black wheel is pretty ugly.
