    New Rims

    So I was looking on craigslist and found some rims for cheap. Their rally blue, but they are the exact style that I wanted. The guy was only selling the set for $200 because the blue had little blemishes in the paint. But I was astonished at how good they look on my car. Im getting them painted gold soon. I threw them on just to see how they looked.

    I personally dont like the blue(thats why im getting them painted gold), But I wanna see what everyone thinks about it either being good deal or not even worth $200.

    Not bad. I think it'll look way better when you get them painted. Either way, good buy for only $200.

    Thanks yea when I saw it on craigslist the dude was selling them for $400 and he said $200 today so I had the money and needed rims so I just bought them.

    Cant wait to get them painted though. Im really either considering gold or white. Theres alot of people with blue wrx's with gold rims here (my old one had gold rims thats the only reason I wanna paint these gold) but no one has white... Ive looked some wrx's up with white rims they look sick.

    So now the question is White or Gold?

    Yeah hard to say whether it's a good deal without knowing what kind of rims they are.....

    Your preference, and yours alone...I think either looks good, but I'm partial to gold. However...white will be a ***** to keep clean if that matters to you

    I'd never do white because my silver wheels currently look gunmetal from break dust.

    If you still haven't painted them I can try to photoshop your picture with white rims.

    Dude, I am so sorry about the photoshop thing. My MacBook broke or something so I had to take it to the Apple store and the only way to recover my computer was to restart everything. I just got it back today. I'll try to photoshop it as soon as I install all my things again.
