Hi, I need help in my choice of wheel.

I own a red 1991 Toyota Celica GT-S. I love gold wheels and I want to know if it will be nice on my red car.

Please post pics of red car w/ gold rims or post your opinion about it.

Thanks

Pit

edit: this is bronze, not gold. I think bronze looks great on red cars

Hi, thanks for all the replies,

I like your wheels 19celica90. I would like some wheels like yours, chrome lip with gold color. But my car isn't the same red as you. Here a shoot of my car :

It will look fine, but IMO what makes the wheel on a car is not the color, but the type of spoke. What kind are you looking for? (i.e. 5 spoke,6,8,10, blah blah blah) and in what size?

look into rays engineering's G-Game 77w or 77w-viao. They come in a real dark gold, Jdm tight!

yeah I think gold can look great on red cars, usually a deeper red though, and black cars some times

gold looks good on dark reds, whites, blacks and some blues. pitcelica, my rims are called Azul Speedstars. I never really heard anything about that company but the rims are light as hell!! Are you looking for a 5, 6, 7 star?? I like the Rota Drag in gold too

19celica90,

no trying to jack the thread but, 19celica90 what suspension are you running and cms-gt4 it looks to be the spoiler from the 7th gen with the action package

19celica90,

Its the spoiler from a 00'+ Toyota Celica GT-S with the side panels molded in flush. Anyone looking to swap this onto their celica's its a pretty much direct swap. Obviously u need to drill new holes but it sits on the back with no gaps and looks factory!

19celica90,

These Azul Speedstar are exactly the rims that I need. The same as yours.

WheelsNext.com sale them at a really nice price : 700 $ US w/ 205-40-17 Nexen tires and shipping is included.

http://www.wheelsnext.com/default.cfm?action=dspWheel&MODEL=SPEEDSTAR&color=GOLD

For me, this is a nice deal. I'll certainly buy them soon.

My main question was if gold wheel look nice on a red car, but all of you guys, helped me in my decision : if I buy new wheels, I'll buy them in gold color and certainly those Azul Speedstar, because they are at a good price.

Thanks for all the replies!

Judging from the pictures in this thread (http://celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29213), I'd say I prefer bronze. But gold looks pretty good, too.

Gold 5 spoke with a polished lip will be pure sex.
Go for it.

gold doesn't look too bad on red cars. bronze is the way to go imo.

Its not RHD. Look at the decals. Its supposed to read "Team Venture Racing" however he just had the picture flipped horizontally.

Copy and paste the picture into Paint or whatever, and flip it horizontally, then you'll see :)

Take a look at the ignition and pedals. Looks RHD to me.

yes it is rhd I had the vinyl put on that way if you dont believe it, ask gt4rcdude, andy, or donteatbugs they all saw it first hand at nopi

Looks pretty legit, i must ask, did you do all the RHD conversion work? Must been a headache/money pit. Looks like it turned out great though! I also want to see your car still grrrr.

Sorry, :jacked:

Why would you put the decals on like that?
:wtf:

Mr. Babb
11-13-2007, 12:06 PM
I did like 95% of the work myself and it took about three months only working on it in the afternoons on weekdays It really didnt cost me anymore than a typical swap since I did most of the work but I spent alot of extra on little extra things like fmic, bc, afc, manifolds, etc.........

and the decals were like that because aguy in the clubs wife cut them and she thought it would be more JDM looking because thats what they do in Japan. I don't know I've taken them off because I changed car clubs

This looks like a bronze/gold combo.

On a side note... is it unhealthy that I know the tire by looking at the tread?

:laugh: I do the same thing. When checking out cars, I'll be like "Oooh nice rims" then go in for a closer look, then I see some cheap all-seasons and just shake my head.
