There ya go. Yeah, I think the SSII has enough of a blue hue that a blue wheel doesnt compliment it as much as I thought it would. SSII is sort of a hard color to match unless you go all out with a crazy color like green or orange.

You can't go wrong with black on any color car except for black or blue IMO.

The IND SSII car with mag blue wheels looks fantastic. I also like SSII with black wheels. I would choose one of the above. SSII has become one of my favorite colors because of it's depth.

No, original TE37s with original centercaps and new decals. I am not really into the SL look, unless its mag blue or protoblue. I like centercaps.

Center caps are a huge plus! I never fully got over the lack of center caps when I had SL's.

Your 19s were pretty sweet though. I wanted them, but just bad timing.
