Ok I've been seriously thinking of having my SH wheels done in white. But now I'm thinking gun metal or something similar. So tell me what you think looks best.

Stock:


White:


Dark:


REAL Dark:


17's just aren't worth the money for me and my rims could use a little touch up. So I'm probably going with one of these.

Yea I agree that stock looks best!

But if u really want to powder-coat the rims, I would say white, for that sharp-clean look.

Dark colors just look like u haven't cleaned ur rims for a loooooooonnnng time.

Ur car covered w/salt distorted the look too!

Marsh, I like the white powercoating.

Bronze powercoating as Mugen bronze look sweet.

I think you should get white, it look good on your ride.

I've heard that its about 30 per rim, but don't quote me on that, I could be totally wrong.

Am I the only person around here that thinks gunmetal/darker wheels look like A$$?? I'd say keep them stock or go white (red and black are about the only colors that white looks good with)...

Just MHO...

I say go puke green/brown.

To me, coloring your wheels is a waste of money. I bet in 2 years or so, everyone will be saying, "Ewww!!! White!! Gunmetal!! Played out!! Rice, etc. etc." It wasnt too long ago that everyone was all into chrome. Now if you ask anyone about chrome, everyone gags. So you might as well get puke green/brown so youll get that gag reaction faster.


Yet stock never goes out of style...go figure.

Gunmetal, just make sure it's SHINY.

I was trying to decide what color as well..
prolly do a light gunmetal and use them for the track... and get a set of white 17's for the street.



more colors!
