    That's is really a beautiful color. I love the wheels with highlighted red calipers. It look killer!

    God that's a beautiful color.

    No it's not matte. It's a metallic paint with a LOT of flakes.

    On another note SRT needs to offer the black chrome finish in all of the wheels, matte and gloss black wheels are as old as Pepsi Clear.

    The color code is ( JSC ). I pulled the color chip from my chip board. Looks good but looks like every other met. silver. I like the combo in the above picture.

    It is a awesome color, But I disagree with the gloss black comment. In the custom catagory black wheels were not very popular for premium wheels, it was usually polished or chromed. Over the last few years the "nice" wheels have been the black variations. For the record... I miss crystal pepsi. It was damn good.

    Beautiful color but the car needs gunmetal stripes and mirrors that match the aero.

    Lol at the crystal pepsi

    What I mean is, yes the OEM finally caught up, but in general matte black and gloss black are old news. That was circa 2006 in the car scene. Now it's all the old farts who are falling in love with them. Same goes for blacked out and matte paint jobs.

    To the others, hold judgment until you see the color in person. It looks nothing like any silver I've seen before.

    Car will look nice with some graphics and stripes. Is that front lip CF? Man, that won't last long.

    Yes it is. It's part of the carbon aero package. All the TA's have those.

    That's hot, but the Black wheels absolutely ruin it. The sooner this black wheel craze dies the better. Just ghetto!

    Werd. Did somebody do it on a performance car one day and suddenly it caught on or something?

    No. Black rims / painted rims = Hardcore. Polished or chrome rims.... Now your talking poser / ghetto rims.

    The black rims only look good when they play into a theme of black or black accenting. A big blob of silver with black wheels is just too bland. Shiny wheels look good on almost any car but they become the focal point rather than the car. This car needs stripes and more black accenting or shiny wheels imo. Even window tint would help the black wheel look.

    Black rims a lot of times to me look like your hubcabs have been stolen.

    I guess I'm in the minority here as this does nothing for me. To me this silver makes the car look bland. It will probably look better in person though. Sometimes pictures don't do a color justice. Any way give me the TA orange, white or B/W over this color.

    I have always loved silver. But black wheels need to be on a black car to me. <-------- opinion.

    Wheels aside the color is awesome. Same as the ALMS cars. I've seen this on Chally's and Jeeps and it has a nice metallic finish and luster in person.

    Yeah that was Jeff's (Twinvipers) old car in the photo with the black wheels, mine has "ghetto" chrome iforged. :D I like black wheels sometimes, like 98intrique on heres SRT coupe and GEN IV ACR's are both AWESOME looking examples.
