View Full Version : what color rims look best on white *post pics*

02-06-2008, 02:43 AM
so, im trying to get some ideas. i personally think silver looks the cleanest on a white car, and they are currently bronze, but i want them to be a bit more unique...

anyways, pictures always help :)
ive been trying to find a site that features all the custom volk colors, but i cant find any.

the wheels are 5 spoke

White on white is always sexy, or else gold...cant go wrong with silver.

i really don't like white on white unless they are OZ cronos

they are currently dark bronze, but they need to be re-coated, and i was thinking i might change the color so they are unique to my car. i like silver, but again, im aiming for something unique, and silver is kinda bland, but clean looking.

Sliver with chrome lip, chrome (sig), gunmetal with polished lip, deep dish wheels, etc.

eh, i don't really like chrome, they really can't be "polished", and they really dont have any dish to them

gunmetal with a silver lip is an idea. hmmm.

I didnt like chrome at first until i got these wheels i have on my car now. Im happy with.

02-06-2008, 04:29 AM
some sort of gold/bronze always compliment white, check out my rims in my garage, they're a sorta dirty gold color.

02-06-2008, 04:33 AM
im pretty sure the guy who's selling these to me will attempt to castrate me if i chrome them :ohyeah:

its really not my style anyways. i like bronze, but they were on his car in bronze, so everyone who doesn't know will think its his car and not mine

I think black with polished lip looks good on white, nice and sporty

i think black wheels on a white car look too tacky. it contrast too much

02-06-2008, 05:26 AM
agian, i really can't "polish" these wheels. i mean, maybe, but it would take ALOT of polishing and sandblasting to make them look decent.

anyone have any photos of a dark grey or gunmetal with a silver lip?

true, unless they got some decent tint to even it out imo

02-06-2008, 06:13 AM
yeah dood i think black rims look good on white. maybe if they wern't stock it'd look better. i went with powdered black stockers on black with black tint. it depends on what you like though.

or.. those volk rims i see on shit EX hatches...... the copper would look nice imo

02-06-2008, 06:30 AM
personally i like black rims on a white car and then with limo black tint, i think that looks the best but iv been told i am a such a "white boy" by all the "OGs" around here that i told i want to put black on a white car, atm im running steelies with white painted cheapo hubcaps and i think my car looks awesome, and with the price of rubber jumping up 10% again on the 1st i dont think i will be buying tires any time soon

02-06-2008, 08:10 AM
true, unless they got some decent tint to even it out imo

true. i don't have any tint, but i may get it tinted to the CO legal limit (i think its 28% on all sides). i really don't want darker tint that that because my eyesight isn't that good (20/15 with glasses, 20/150 L, 20/400 R without glasses), and it would suck to drive even the shortest distance with the tint any darker if my vision wasn't corrected. i don't know how i did it, but i don't have a vision restriction on my license, so i can technically drive without glasses, even though i never do.

however, black seems so, er, dull. the more i think about it, the more im liking the idea of a metallic grey with a silver lip. maybe just powder coat it grey, and than spray a couple coats of silver, and then clear coat the whole thing.

you could always go with the black witht he silver lip, Drag Wheels has alot of cool rims that are like that

02-06-2008, 09:30 AM
i already have the wheels picked out though, and i'll be getting them next weekend. one of a kind japanese wheels with 245/45/16 bfgoodrich g-Force T/A KD tires, with the perfect offset for celica's. ive only ever seen two sets.

02-06-2008, 10:26 AM
actually, im rethinking the white on white look
it would have to be a very glossy white though. hmmm

also, i found these two vendor ads with lots of volk colors. im kinda sad to say that i like the dark bronze the best. oh well, i guess im not technically coping him

the very dark glossy blue looks kinda cool. if my car was jet black, i think those would contrast it awesome. actually, think i could still pull off that kind of blue if my car had a fresh coat of lexus pearl white and a CS bumper to smooth out the front.

I've been going with White on White since I've owned the car. I do like the look and alot of people agree. But this summer I will be switching to a Black/Silver Wheel and see how thats goes.


New Wheels :

I say bronze Wheels or White Spokes.

02-06-2008, 08:57 PM
i think i see what will look odd with white wheels. theres ALOT of tire on these wheels, and because i really don't have anything to really to blend with the black, it will make the tires stick out more....

hmm, i think dark bronze is winning.

02-06-2008, 09:02 PM
hate the white on chrome....but gold on white specially pearl white is sexy.

02-06-2008, 11:54 PM
I have a white 1993 GT and I chose Motegi FF6 in white.

I think it looks awesome and it gives it a little "Rally" look.

Just my opinion.

02-07-2008, 12:16 AM
I think volk Mercury Silver is the best looking color on a white car. I have been trying to figure out where I can buy the paint.


I am a big fan of white on white though.
There is a really nice white GTS with a RC bumper and white OZ wheels somewhere on this site.

Bronze can look good too though.

nice use of sikx5's car

actually i got an idea. but for it to make sense, i'll have to show you what im getting.
Enkei RP-01's

after looking around, i found out that those same wheels came in a gloss black with a blue lip. what do you guys think?
i kinda like how its different, but its on the edge of being ricy imo

02-07-2008, 03:09 AM
Very Ricey. If you had a blue car that matched the lip, it might work but the "time attack" trend is on its way out and by the time you get them they will look out of style. Same thing happened to altezza tail lights.

It might be safest to get a black wheel with polished lip, or just black wheels.

02-07-2008, 03:48 AM
maybe i wasn't clear, sorry. im getting those bronze wheels that i posted the picture of.

i just was trying to think of a good color to switch them to since i would like them to be unique to my car. i may just leave them dark bronze though

02-07-2008, 06:17 PM
even with my ghetto white hubcaps i think the white on white looks awesome, maybe when everything else is done on my car ill go with the white, i still kinda have my heart set on the black with the polished lip, make sure you post pics up when you get them on, im headed to mexico for a week so when i get back ill be checking up on this thread lol
