    Black vs. Gold Rims

    So I'm getting new wheels for my blue 2013 WRX. The wheels that I'm planning to get look somewhat similer to the stock wheels( they are a little different though). They come in grey, black, and gold. Right now, I am leaning towards gold or black right now.

    And no cars look bad with black wheels.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.

    I'm getting some snow tires for the winter. In case it snows, and I have drive to work or school. They aren't going to have studs in them, but I just want them for better traction because it is hilly where I live and it is a mess to drive in the snow.

    These are the wheels i am thinking about

    In that case you do realize that the wheels will be destroyed by the salt & grime & rocks that are sprayed on the road? I'd get something cheap.

    Yeah, I'm not buying the most expensive wheels out there. The ones I posted are considered to be the cheaper ones I think, and they are all the same price ($115 each?).

    Then I'd go with a lighter color. I vote gold.

    Or buy a set of used wheels for the winter. There are plenty for sale on the forums or on your local CL. Sometimes with winter tires at a pretty good deal.

    No, no, no.

    Nice aftermarket wheels in summer time, OE in winter

    The only thing about those gold wheels that I dont like is the polished lip and sliver bolts
