Default anodized green wheels on my green car?

I may have a set of scratched up te-37's (trading my vw for the wheels and $1000 w/ra-1's). I was just going to spraypaint them bronze...but I already have a set of bronze wheels. What about stripping them, and doing anodized green?

color matched wheels don't look good 99% of the time.

****, I'd just buy the 6UL's, but I know the first time I oversteer over curbing its going to **** them up. Its so hard to find used track wheels...even K1's. my 14's are gunmetal, and they look grotesque.

I found another set of 15" NB wheels for $250...might just go that route. i want to run 225's after going out for a ride in an NA NB on 225 ra1's.

I agree, but anodized green on a green car might look cool. I'm still toying with the idea of a new set of gold rpf1's...but they are too nice to track.

my black AMGs on my black E class don't look as good as I thought they would. And it was TOUGH to find real, black AMGs. IIRC I have 1 of 2 or 3 sets Mercedes/AMG ever made in black.

RPf1's are track wheels man super tough and light i love mine i have been thinking about another set for my sister as well or maybe something wider for if i decide to track with more rubber on my ride. they aren't cheap though you would do well to get some for less than 750 or so $

black on black always looks good. My car is too dark to go with black wheels...but I guess who gives a **** on the track. These own my life...but not for the price:

I was all green'd out after doing my first street bike all green. I liked the look as did others, but idk about a dark brg wheel, I like the gold ones for your car.

why not? there aren't any potholes on tracks at least. 16" would probably work better anyway on the track, but tires will be more expensive.

if you got them in a dark green anodized finish it would look cool.but light or neon 80ish green will look gay.
