I had Ec-7s in Race Silver on my old Imola, really liked that look.

Maybe it's me, but darker colored wheels on Imola just doesn't look right.

I would def go with a race silver over anything anthracite/charcoal/hyperblack. I'd go gloss/satin black before any anthracite/hyperblack on imola.

I kinda like the JR - 11 look / style, but it’s more of a “looks wheel” in the offset posted. Sorry nothing on Imola

A more conservative sizing could be a pretty decent setup and they don’t want your first born child as payment.

100% agree, I'm pretty much deadset on silver. Now the debate is between FL-5 and SM-10 haha

Default Re: Imola - wheel suggestions?

Imola is a very difficult color to wheel match, imho.

I would suggest choosing a theme for your car, be it dark or light. If you go light, keep the chrome kidneys and gills, get silver wheels, don't tint the windows. If you go dark, get darker kidneys and gills, tint the windows, get a darker wheel color (black still doesn't work, imho).

Mixing and matching on imola makes an incohesive result that looks crappy to my eye.
