I've been looking at a bunch of pictures and I don't think I like black wheels as much as I did at first. The silver looks so much cleaner. I'm still a little partial to the p40's though

the black wheels look great on most colors except mine. Think it looks awesome on AW, MR, IB, and SSII. its nice to see the finished surface in p40's which you cant if they are in black.

I don't like black wheels either. If 19" stick with the HRE P40. If 20" and you can afford the extra money, then BBS LM or LM-R all the way...

Search "P40" in the photo forum. You'll get plenty of inspiration
