Poll: Black Or Silver Rims? Sun, 11 September 2005 15:02 Go to next message

Black or Silver Rims?[ 24 vote(s) ]
1.Silver 8 / 33%
2.Black 16 / 67%

Im having a spot of trouble deciding whether to go for the Black inner rim with polished lip, or to go silver inner rim with a polished lip.

i just bought these rims from a mate, and the paints pretty dodgy... so ive started stripping it back in preparation for re-application of black paint.

ive started disassembling the rims, since they are 2 piece.

sorry if the pictures seem out of whack, its my first time reducing the size of the pics, the quality is horredous!

For some reason they make me think of Simmon's.

I went black with the polished lip cause i'm sick of seeing silver and chrome rims/mags

Those are SSR Fins.
Did you get center caps .
They are not easy to get seperately.
Black or Silver depends on the color of the car.
If the car has Black accents then Black.
If silver and chrome accents then Silver.
I would Triple chrome them.

well, i could post a pic of my car, but they are only going on it temporarily,

these are for my new car, which i still havent even decided what it will be Confused

they wont be chrome, i dispise chrome rims.

they will either be black, silver, or gunmetal grey. the car MAY be a gloss black TA22...

Go for a mid-charcoal with a little bit of silver metallic in it. Suits nearly any paintjob on the planet, and hides brake-dust like a freakin trooper ! !

Hmmm, sounds like a plan, but i think it just simpler to get em painted black or silver, i can get pretty much any non metallic acrylic done for free, charcoal and gunmental etc. will cost $$$

might as well get em powder coated Razz

In that case, just get 'em to mix the black & silver together, and Presto - cheap-ass charcoal ! ! Maybe if they don't mix it thoroughly you'll get a mild silver-on-black candy effect!
