what color rim do you think will look best on a silver lude?

i had 17in. black ff7s with polished lip that looked nice.. but looking at 16in. subzeros.

here is my philosophy:

Silver car= silver/gunmetal rims

Black car= black w/ polished lip

white car= whit rims

every other color= silver/gunmetal

JDM lime green :eek:mg:

I think you should go with gloss black... it matches anything. But then again, it all depends on how you want the entire car to look in the end.

If you want a polished lip you need AT LEAST a 17" wheel to pull off the look.

Otherwise, go with steel grey, gunmetal, or black.
I agree... little wheels with polished lips look kind of funny in my opinion.

^ i agree.

i would go with black, silver, or gunmetal... in that order. i also wouldn't get a polished lip on a 16" wheel. 17" wheel.. go for it.

Here's my mirror black powdercoated stockers for reference... If I upgrade, it'll definitely be to 17 or 18" black wheels with a polished lip. Not plannin' on it anytime soon though.

Gold/Bronze rims are ghetto looking....

Silver looks good on any color. Black Rims with polished lips or gunmetal can look good depending on there style. Rims that are completly black look like spare tires from a distance....

White is something I would avoid also...

i wouldn't say gold/bronze are "ghetto" looking. just, imo, they don't belong on silver cars.


my old car.
