I like it.
Looks cool and different.
Suits the car, the black look.
With a good set of black mags you will pull it off I think.

That whole "Car of Black and White" thing you have going there is pretty cool.

I had some modern 5 spoke black mags on it but I think it went too far toward the muscle car look.
The plan is to keep the lattice wheels but paint the "lattice" black.
I might get some plasti-dip and see how they look with the rims white and the lattice black. Easy to clean off if it looks stupid.
