show car question
Just curious what you all think about rims on a 'show car'...and I mean, not for racing...almost strictly show. If the exterior is black...white rims? heavy duty chrome rims (like lexani's VP2 or another luxuary type)? gunmetal? 5 spoke? 6? lots of spokes? I'm havin the toughest time trying to decide...cause when it comes time to racing I could always put the stock rims back on... confused

For a black car, I would suggest 19 inch chrome rims, thats my Linked Image.

ok...just out of curiousity...I photochopped a pic of my Z and threw some Lexani VP (3pc) on them...

thumbsup or thumbsdown

They're chrome (but since I noticed the side of my car looked so dark, I darkened the rims up a lil bit...reflection n stuff)

Yeah that's a big thumbsdown for show go chrome but get sporty looking chrome rims. Lexani's are good rims but are not right for your car imo.

Sorry, those rims don't look good to me, I'd have to give them a thumbsdown
