Nickel. I have seen them on a white car before and they look great.

Cool thing about this problem is that every answer is correct.

The titatnium finish that's proposed on the 17" version is also pretty hot! Hot enough to start making me thing, "gee, I wish I had an NC."

Spacers for sure. 30mm in the rear and probably 15mm in the front. Rear will be flush, or close to it and the front will be inset just a little at the 12 oclock position. Everywhere else on the front it'll fit perfect.

This also sucks...so the census thus far is any color Someone find a white car with the black 6uls....I'm really thinking this may be a good look. Then again I like all the others as well. FML

No. If I had your car, I would go Black. If the car was plain, or with less black details, then nickel hands down.

I really want to see how much spacing are you gonna have to use to match your flares to the wheels.

There's no need for a poll. You know black 6uls will complement your car the best.

I have black 9's on my car and I want bronze 9's.

Any of the four color choices will look good on a white or black car.

I didn't put a whole lot of effort into this, but here's what nickel looks like from the side. I just washed the car so the rotors are all rusty.

Nickel. Also a side note, where did you get your spacers from. Im in the same boat; my 6ULs need more space to fill out. What flares are you running?

I ordered the adapter style spacers from Motorsports-Tech. 30mm rear 19mm front



I forgot who said it, but they nailed it on the head. If my car was all white, DEFINITLY nickel. But with the carbon top and the carbon wrap on the upper half of my car, blacks the only way to go for me...unless I get a second set someday
