20" Gloss Black - Currently have 20" Pentagons.

Worth the change or not?

Ideally, I would like to keep my Pentagons for future use and have a black set of Pentagons but I cant find a set anywhere...

Mate, have a look at ozzytyres.com.au gallery. Or their facebook page, they have a white maloo on there.

Ta. They have a ton of cool pics but I could not see a white maloo with these rims. Or do you mean another set of black wheels that look cool?

A white ss ute with a five star looking rim on the front page of the gallery look good.

Yeah, there Facebook page has a nice maloo with black rims. Most black wheels will suit a white car. I like the KM 775

They arnt my cup of tea. You could always get your pentagons powdercoated black, that would look sweet.

Yeah the pentagons are my pref. anyone know where I can buy a set in black or a dark grey? Aftermarket is fine if the quality is OK.

I think the rims in the first post would look good on a 60's mustang.

Black wheels on a White Car Look Hot.
Changing wheels is a big decision and very personal.
If you can try and place the wheels on wooden blocks in front of the current wheels, step back and have a good look.
I really like Satin/Flat Black Centers with Polished rims, and they look very cool on White cars
Here are couple of my Favorites

BTW The Foose wheels are very cool.
A guy was getting them fitted to a Blue car when I was getting my new wheels fitted.

I got a white e3 gts,.. And I've been thinking the same about the black rims... How u reckon to get the gts rims powder coated?

MVP23

Yeah powder coating is cool and apparently pretty easy (as long as you can have your at off the road for a few days). I am really chasing a second set though so I can swap back to stock pentagons at some point.

I haven't seen an E3 GTS with black powdercoated wheels. Don't know if i would do that to those type of wheels. Are yours the non SV wheels?

There were some E3 GTS's on carsales awhile back with Black GTS wheels. They looked pretty good in the photos.

Give Ebay a try

Thanks. Yeah, hoping to get a set already done in gloss black. The ones on eBay and others I have seen are all standard colour or one guy on eBay selling a gun metal grey. Nobody doing gloss black from what I can see.

The gun metal grey ones are what I brought off eBay, they look great on my rig

Yep, they look great :)

I think i may have seen those on eBay from a seller in Perth. Do you know if they will do black too?

Nah these are from a tyre/wheel place in nsw. I don't know if the do black, although I tried asking them for the paint code for my wheels and they wouldn't tell me, said it was a custom paint mix which they won't divulge.

Yeah me too, cancelled the tentative order on the Foose whells in post1.

Thinking I will just source some pentagons, sand blast them, Gloss 2pac finish.

The STD gts rims that come with the e3, they not the pentegons..

Thanks guys,

OK, Bought a second set of Pentagons, getting them done in Black of course.

Now, Gloss or Matt or Semi Gloss/Low sheen as the finish (Heron white R8 remember). Which finish would you say looked best?? I can get some metalic thrown in there which will only ever show up on the perfect sunny day at the right angle, but it's a slight change nonetheless. Thoughts peeps?

Thanks mate, pretty stoked myself.

Had a mate sand them and spray them metallic black with high gloss. I bought a second set of Pentagon's and kept a set for the stock setup.

Cheers
