that color wasnt for that NB..i had a black NA that was gonna get the pleasure to rock those but then i decided i wanted a NB and i was looking at a blue which i thought it was gonna look cool but i ended with this white NB....i knew it wasnt gonna look good so i never even sported them, until i decided to just test fit them since i wasnt satisfied with my tires as well...well i redid my wheels gold as i kept telling other people and here is the outcome

I think the gold will look good. Make sure to post pics when you mount them.

They'd look better on that school bus in the background, but in gold it will be nice on your car.

I almost made a comment about the "short bus" in his driveway earlier but decided against it.

I'm sorry but that still looks bad. The green kinda looked like they were radio controlled car wheels. You're making emelio cry with all the weight you're adding. He worked so hard to make them light.

Good job at making the paint even though. I am very sure I would fail very well at that.

The tire rack virtual wheel section is your friend. That or photoshop.

Like the gold or not at least they aren't flourescent green anymore. And people laugh because I have a roll bar....

The OP should be beat about the head with the painted wheel. Someone should go and liberate those wheels and give them to someone who isn't a tool.

Gold with the polished lip would be pretty good.

Nothing wrong with green either \/ \/

i didnt know spray paint added so much noticable weight on the wheels...hmm maybe a lil more common sense would help your life lol

...people are still gonna laugh at your roll bar lol

no polish lip because having it all one color gives a more concave look.....
