I'm actually a fan of black wheels on white cars. I know some have said otherwise but I feel the sharp contrast really draws attention to the car. It's not for everyone I guess... but white exterior with black accents throughout is def something I'm looking to do once I take delivery of mine!

Its not the white car the problem necessarily its the black arches. If the arches were body color then black would look great.

Ahhh, gotcha. I can see how some might have a problem with that, it hadn't even crossed my mind that the arches being black would affect the look of the wheels.

The GT is being sold with exterior color matching arches, I wonder if these parts would be available once the GT begins delivery and would fit seamlessly on say a premium trim?

In another thread where we were talking about the fender moldings, I mentioned that they are available two ways from Ford. Gloss black and primed ready to paint. It is the same moulding so it will fit on any of the models. I am getting an Infinite blue premium and changing the wheels out for black ones. Because of this, I ordered the primed moldings and will have them painted the body color as I like the look of this better with the black wheels.

Good to know! Would you happen to have a link to the Ford parts number for the moldings? Curious to know how much they run.

Does Ford not also sell the moldings already painted to match the exterior colors like in the FE or the GT? I wonder if someone with an FE was to get damage to the molding and look to replace it, that they'd need to get a primed one as well and have to paint to match.

I do not have the part numbers off hand but will tomorrow or Friday and will post them. They are VERY expensive like around $200 each I think. Correct, Ford DOES NOT sell them already painted. Can you imagine the amount of inventory they would need to have all of these moldings in painted colors?

I meant to post these part numbers for the primed front fender and rear quarter panel mouldings last week. As I said before, they are very expensive and probably would be best if someone wanted to change them from gloss black to body color should just have the gloss black ones painted. About $970 for all four primed mouldings which is insane not to mention then you have to have them painted.

What about chrome & black (5 spoke) rims? Has anyone seen or have these on a star white MME?
