Or should i just keep these and get new sticky tires?

They don't look too bad. Need to have someone photoshop them onto the car.

those would look nice on your car..and a white car.

I think you would also need a drop to complete the look if you can. I am hoping to drop mine sometime last this summer.

def nice colour.

I'd definitely take your current ones over those.

Take those rims back to the ghetto. They would look like garbage on black and even worse on a GA.

Unless you drive a Subaru, gold rims are FTL all day, everyday. Style isn't bad, but don't get this color on a black car.

I read that 5 times before I realized you said Subaru, not Saturn. I was going to say.... SATURN??? WHY????????

Just take whatever I have left in it and pay yourself and your g/f. I think I owe her for a few weeks anyways. :angel

gao- if you do decide to get these are you going to change your accents to gold? It would make more sense.

I thought you were just tagging the other two. My bad.


I gave her the money, but she wasn't happy with Monopoly money.






On topic..... Gold rims/black car reminds me of this:

Black doesn't look good w/ any other color but chrome IMO.

So buy then and I'll trade you :D

How cheap are they. The style is great (like i said imitation volks), so if you can get them cheap enough get them powdercoated to the color of your choice.

You already have wheels, why dont you lower it and do a couple of other small mods?

Because i want something new and with the pot holes here in lower CT its not a good idea to lower it. Not to mention my apartment building has speed bumps which kill my suspension. Iv seen honda's teeter totter on them its kinda funny because they are so high!


And they do come in black with chrome lip.

You dont know potholes until you have driven in Chicago, the city, not the suburbs. Use your eyes and avoid them. Go over the speed bumps slow, thats what you are supposed to do anyways.

Another set of wheels is just a bad investment, there will always be something you find that you end up liking more than what you currently have. I dont know what else you have on your car, but maybe do something with the stereo or interior. Performance mods are usually the best $$ spent besides stereo stuff, for re-selling.

Black with chrome lip would be ok. But im telling you...powdercoating is cheap enough, if your in love with the style (which I def am), buy them, get them coated silver / gunmetal / any color you would like.

And even in gold, i think they would look much better than the ones you have.

There are a couple of black Nissans running around here that are black with light weight gold wheels and they look great. The car does need to be lowered, but I think the wheels would look really good. Chrome on black? I'm just not in to the chrome thing much unless it's luxury or BIG. Jus' my opinion.

I saw a Prelude here in Portland with those type wheels on it. They looked pretty sweet on that car, but I don't think they will look all that good on a GA not in Gold I thinks.

I'm going to just fix the curb rash on my old rims and powder coat them gloss black with polished lip.

Also good deal on motegi rims with good tires.
