i like the contrast of silver off of the black, plus i have those red tyc's so gunmetal or black rims might not flow w/o dark tails.

but i also like the gunmetal look. it flows and has the whole dark theme. but do you think i'd need to switch to black tyc's to support the dark look?

the gunmetal rims are TRdRida's, and I could buy them from him for an awesome price. no shipping, no waiting. he lives about 1 mile away from me. smile

the general idea of the first chop is to just show what silver looks like. i wouldn't be going for those rims specifically. as far as the 2nd, those are THE rims i would get, because they belong to Louie. anyway which ones?

What do you think about a gloss black 5 star with a polished lip? Always thought that looked good on black cars.

either would look good in the gunmetal finish, but i think the second rims look better on your car. I've seen them before on a silver celica, and that looked good, so i think it'd be even better on a black celica.

well i had them on my car for the last couple days and i don't like them quite as much as in the chop, so i'm not gonna take them.

there's another reason why too, but i shouldn't say just yet til its a done deal. let's just say i'm crossing back over to my roots again.
