Would it look gay to have white wheels on a white car?

I actually just saw this. Doesn't look too bad. I wouldn't have the action package. And I'd do some different stuff with various trim pieces. And minus the sticker. But not bad I think. I may have just answered my own question. http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/3281/3701/33201850002_large.jpg

I don't think so. The 4th gen I use to have had white wheels and I loved it.

I think they will look great on your car.

And that not biased at all. I honestly think they will look good.

I was trying to think of which car I'd put 'em on. I decided they'd look super-gay on a green car. I was sort of iffy on a white car. So I figured I'd ask. Lol

yes

i fail to see how white wheels make a car look more jetta-like :D unless the car is already a jetta. then the wheels may as well just be rainbow spirals.

I like the idea of a "white out" - and love the Toyota super-white color.

Yet I think some chrome accents really serve to "set off" the white theme.

But I don't think they'd look "ghey" - I just think they would be "washed out" - like almost unnoticeable.

Still - the above would depend on how clean and painted you had the brakes behind them - and how much the spokes on the wheels allowed all that to be seen.

They're Grot's wheels. So they'll be seen. I was actually thinking of keeping the majority of the car super white, then contrasting several bits with some black (to match the tires etc). Not an incredible amount of black. Just a little. ;)

Oh, and Karl... definitely not a jetta. Lol

PinoyGT4: Yeah, I stole his sig pic. He had it first. It's a joke on him being a popo. I keep meaning to change it, but I need a picture to do it. But definitely won't do red on red. So no worries.

^Screw this...get whitewalls! (and yes, you can still buy whitewall tires)

That should look pretty good (white w/black).

Phys. Dear John white walls? LOL yeah, that'd be awesome for a while. But then I'd have to white out my tail lights and tint the windows white too. Lol and get a white antenna. But thanks tho.

MCcelica, what are the specs (manufacturer, part no., etc.) of the wheels in your #2 post JPG?

I saw a set of those exact wheels on a white 5th Gen white convertible, and they looked great. I am restoring a 5th Gen white convertible, and the factory silver alloy wheels just don't look that good on it right now. I think the wheels you are looking at look great on a white convertible. Just want to know if I can still buy them somewhere.

oh nice!!!

it wont look bad if you put that on a white car..

since it has red decals... :D

why dont you try the matte bronze color of volk wheels?

i bet there are photoshop experts here.. so can you just ask a small favor and photoshop the color you'd want and put that on your car digitally? :biggthumpup:

anyhoo that's how we do it here in PI.. LOL!

93celicaconv: Sorry, I can't answer your question as the car in post #2 in this thread is not mine. It's just a googled image. The ones I'm getting are in post #21. But I hope that restoration goes well for you!

Pinoy: Yeah bro, the red decals is what really sold me. I really dig that. Hopefully I can find a discreet way to get those little pieces of the R's to stick back down. They look badass though. My only thing now is until I can get 'em on the car, I need to find a way to hide 'em from my lady. She's already trying to tell me how not to spend my money and I ain't even married yet! Lol!

I was thinking of putting old school solid white letter BFG radial t/a tires on my 8-6.

I still think some white letter tires with about a 55 series sidewall are awesome. The Mustang I sold a few years back had some massive Hoosiers with white letter tires.

little trick.. use some double adhesive and spray a little clear coat to help stick it down.. :biggthumpup:
