Default WHITE WHEELS ON GREY SCOOB

Hi all,


Looking at changing the wheels on my GC8 type R.


Colour is RB5 Grey I believe.


And I am thinking of some Rays TE37 style wheels in white.


Has anyone got any pictures of this set up?


I think Grey or black maybe better suited, but would prefer to see pictures before deciding.




Many Thanks in advance.


PJ

If you use poorboys wheel sealent white alloys are a doddle to keep clean

Saying that...
Although I'd go for a DIFFRENT colour wheel if I had the rb5 gay I'd go for a bronze or anthracite colour in my opinion

Few members on here have alloys in that colour on there met grey classics look very nice in the bronze I think it's bustamoves classic or binnys one of them 2 gandu's anyway..

End of the day pal it's your car if you feel and know you want white alloys then get them regardless of other people's opinions as that's what they are only opinions it's what makes you happy as it's your car

I had white alloys on my 86F STi V5, the JDM cars had it before the RB5. But I have had white wheels on a number of my scoobs.

But Photobucket did me dry and the pictures are now gone!!!!!

Hi All,


I think without even seeing pictures of white wheels on a grey car, It just isn't going to look right, white looks great on a lot of coloured cars, red blue etc, but just don't think it's going to work on grey.


So just got to make my mind up on black, silver, or bronze me thinks.

Nothing wrong with white wheels or living on a council estate. I also suggest you stay in Spain

No worries mate, good luck deciding, i personally don't think you can go far wrong with white, black or bronze wheels on your colour of car.
