    Nope, the silver ones match the logo in the center cap.

    I vote for black. The wheels are what you want to draw attention to, not the lugs.

    Yes if you also de-chrome the car.

    No, chrome matches center caps.

    I have been using the caps. I think it makes the T in the center stand out more. Though I don't mind the uncapped lug look, either.

    So you couldn't have the caps painted grey?

    The lug caps are plastic, I doubt paint would stick. The center cap is painted factory grey, of course.

    Like the wheel/lug match, but need to wrap the door handles. For a splash of color, wrap the calipers as well

    I don't think you can "wrap" the calipers

    I don't like the black or chrome, I wish someone made grey.
