    What do you think?

    not my car, just found the image with stock wheels - I dabble in gimp, thought I'd give some random ideas in my head a go...



    if one were to actually powdercoat his wheels WRB, I don't think the look would be hideous...

    I don't like it. I don't know why, but I Just don't like it. But that's my opinion, if you like it, great!

    EDIT:
    The image looks good, I just don't like the color. Give it a shot with purple

    I thnk I threw up in my mouth a little bit.....nope, it was a lot.

    Seriously, not many cars can get away with a blue car with gold wheels, but a Subaru can. However, blue on blue,methinks not so much. Im glad it's photoshopped. VERY VERY thankful.

    if you REALLY want to powder coat an aftermarket color.. the only two acceptable colors with blue are white wheels, or gold wheels. BUT I don't like the white on 16" wheels.

    hehe - I never thought something would get such a resounding negative response

    When I actually get my car, I'm probably putting white wheels on it, because I like that combination A LOT... I just wanted to see how this went over - apparently not well

    Once again I find myself entirely against the idea of painting stockers!

    06/07 stockers powdercoated white on SGM or WRB actually looks pretty good.
