    wheel color, what's your opinion?

    hey guys i keep posting in here about random stuff but i was washing the wrx when i noticed that my black rota slipstreams are chipping HORRIBLY. especially on the inside. so I'm going to be sanding them and repainting. i can't seem to decide on a color so i wanted to start a thread with some people's opinions to maybe get my creativity goin a bit!
    my wrx is black and on occasion looks like it has a little blue tint. i don't want to go back to black rims the black on black is too mono-tone for me
    thanks in advance!

    black on black, black on white, black on gold, black on aqua or any bright color, depends on your style

    Post a pic of the wheels, as a reference (i realize i could google it, but it will make it easier for others) I think the design of the wheel also affects a good choice on color.

    regardless, black on gold is teh sex

    Ruh to the Roh raises a good point...black can handle almost any good color on it. I'd personally get a little frisky and go with a bright color!

    Depends on the wheels, but gold is usually a solid choice in my book.

    also, these photos dont really show the chipping because i plasti dipped all the noticible chip spots and the rest (on the inside) are covered by brake dust. anyways, like i posted before ive been thinking i want a bright color. but which color do you think would be best?

    That's not a civic, it's clearly a rally car! Look at the color! The wing!
