    That's why I like the standard wheels. Drive it in the rain and the brake dust blends right in

    It still looks tasteful and not over the top. With the NB in the sun it is a clean look.

    I'm not really a fan of chrome wheels on a car unless chrome is an integral part of the car's design language. For example, chrome wheels on a Cadillac Escalade or most Mercedes Benz look tasteful. However, since there is no chrome anywhere else on the RS (except for the Focus badge), chrome wheels just look out of place on an RS, but that's just my opinion.
