I don't think gold wheels belong on any car.
This is a discussion on Gold wheels on silver car within the Suspension & Wheels forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; I don't think gold wheels belong on any car....
As a side question off topic,
when you got your 18s, was it like putting lead shoes on your car?
I REALLY want 18's, but I keep returning to the whole moment of inertia argument, and by rough calculation, the 17x7.5 rota torques have significantly less than my stock 17s and 18x8's.
Help me decide!!!

I kinda do and don't like it.
It's not TOO bad, however it looks much better with, say, black, blue, grey, etc...

Well here is my 08 with grey STI BBS rims on it (rims f.s.) I like gold on so but with silver grey car I don't really know.
I enjoy Silver with gold, but not as much as silver and silver. The gold is just so sexy and Impreza ready. I have seen most of the same combos on EVOs(white/G black/G silver/G) it just does not sit the same as gold on the Impreza. The only other cars that I have seen gold schemes were Caddys and LGTs, and one impala. But they were not silver. It is unusual and simply a Subaru Impreza rally inspired color in my heart. I would ride with gold on my Impreza no matter the color.

^^^^ Agreed, Gold wheels = Subaru coolness. Gold wheels are almost a "heritage" if you will.
I would have gold wheels on my car no matter what color the car was.
With that though..... I think it looks good, and that's certainly subject to different opinions.
Silver/silver looks good, classy.... but just doesn't make much of a "statement"
Silver/black or Gunmetal looks kinda ricey I think. Thats just me though. Maybe it's cause I'm old
Silver/gold still screams "Hey, look at me".... but not in a 15-year old pimply-faced teenager way.
