Kind of like the riveted look of my new American racing wheels.

Those look really good Shacksman. I bet they look great on a newer AS.

The wheels look nice, but they look like 4 x 4 pickup wheels. I think the combination would look better if the tow vehicle had similar black wheels.
I am more intrigued with the extra side marker lights and the white Mercedes tow vehicle.
I recently switched to Sendel T03 16' wheels and chose the ones with "silver inlay" vs. "black inlay" to look more like what Airstream puts on the new Classics and to be similar to the wheels on the tow vehicle- silver, 5 spokes.
There was a 68 Tradewind ('Forum member 68twind) at the campground over the weekend with black wheels and baby moons. That was sweet.
Blue wheels with baby moons is also cool to match the blue stripe, awning, and Zip Dee chairs.

I also like the mag wheels on the 70's trailers and the gray spoke wheels with trim rings on the 90's trailers.

The modern black wheel trend does yield some good looking combinations, especially on a black, silver, white, blue or red vehicle that has black door handles and a black grill and tinted windows.
I think the "black wheel craze" is brought on by the younger generation and the aftermarket. I guess all trends start that way-

Unless I see them close enough to know otherwise, I presume a dark colored wheel is a dirty steel wheel missing it's hubcap. ��
