Want to freshen up the look... Anyone have these?
 
Looking to change out my wheels. Saw these on caraid, but haven't found much info about them - XOŽ CARACAS Wheels - Matte Black Rims

Anyone have these?

Those are pretty sweet

+1 on the sweet.

I like the look, but no mention of construction method or weight is a definite concern. A lot of cheap aftermarket wheels are heavy and prone to cracking, I like the OZ Allegritta for a good combo of affordable and light.

Nice looking design, but if it were me, I'd go with a silver finish rather than black.

I like them, but more a fan of anthracite/gun metal than black. With black wheels I feel that the wheel and tire all blend in and it's hard to see contrast and definition of the beautiful wheel you paid for. With the anthracite/gun metal, you still get a dark wheel but the awesome contrast as well.

I have yet to see these on another boxster, but I highly recommend them. They look good when they're clean or dirty.... Brake dust doesn't make them look like ****************.

On a silver, grey, or black car (geraintthomas's in particular) I like the anthracite, but for a white car I definitely prefer the matte black. White with fat black concaves. My 20s are a bit bigger and heavier than I would prefer, but I still love them (they came with the car).
