Opinions on the new wheel color

So I ended up keeping my 9-3ss for the time being, and the linear launch wheels were starting to crack and peel. Decided to gunmetal them out... here's some pics. Not sure if i like them yet or not.

Hell yes. PA still doesnt have them, and I've had the black d.a.r.e. plate since 1999. Pa just recently went to the horrible looking yellow, white and blue dare plates.

New York requires them too, but I've been running a black "Saab" Europlate that past few months with no problems.

Definitely looks good.
A set of H&Rs and some Euro bumper strips would finish it off real nice.

I like, but your back end is craving an exhaust tip hanging out of it.
(sorry for the weird connotations that carries.)

I just wanted the black plates to be honest.

The black plate does look awesome on your car.

Does the DARE thinger get you out of trouble any?

I've been running dare plates since '01 and have yet to get a ticket since then (of course mostly i've been driving properly so thats probably why) but i haven't been hastled for tint or exhaust or any of the things people usually get grief for around here. I got them for the looks, but at the very least the cops can't frown upon me for having it. Oh and yeah the wheels look sweet, would be cool if they were more glossy. I might be more into that color on a white car... but its hard to say.
