Painted rims white.

Postby 3s_woob » Tue Sep 21, 2004 12:56 pm

well i just loved the look of the factory jdm rims from 97-98 mr2. they're five spoke just like these gts rims but are white from factory and they're super rare... i believe that the celica ss-II had some too but i've only seen it in the hyper rev mag.

but here's the before pic...

and here's the after pics...

what do you guys think... it's kind of a hit and miss. some people like it the gunmetal and some people like the white. oh well just trying something different.

Yeah I'm going to go for the white being better.

OT: did you read Griffin's posts about his intake temps with the RC hood? You should really get the FMIC on there.

Looks good, but I'm still a bit partial to gunmetal.

Enjoy the war against brake dust! 8)

I like the white rims a lot, just be sure to keep them clean and get some wheel spacers!

I have NEVER liked the white rim look - and your car, my friend, (along w/ an alltrac for sale that had white rims on it) have nice looking rims on that car!

other than the fact that brake dust is going to suck, they actually look pretty sweet.
