LOL. I like them, but it would be cool to see what they look like without the inserts...

Without inserts ftw. They look a bit out of place/cheap. if they conformed with the shape of the rim, that is were roundish instead of straight, It would be much better. They look bolted on (which they are) and IMO thats not the best look for rims.<br>My .02

Re: (chromecarz00)

I think they ROCK either way! Since you are color blind I'd probably take the advice of all the Swedespeeders here, but in the end... its totally up to you!<p>Some people tell me that they dont really think my Hella Horns are as tight as I think they are... but its all about individualism buddy! <p>I say keep on rockin!<p>Oh yea, sick pics! That back ground really brings out the red! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

It's nice to have red accents, but a whole 5 spokes per wheel is just a little overbearing.

Take out the inserts and paint ur calipers red and I think you will get the perfect balance of red and your wheels will look clean!

I too, however, am somewhat colorblind so don't take my word for it.

Re: (Percy311)

It wasn't that bad, just take a saturday and do it, they look amazing afterward. Red looks great, but I have a weird thing that I don't like Christmas colors (green and red) unless it is Christmas and I have some small plans to have some green accents on my car so no red besides the mandatory tails. LOL. Call me crazy but that is just the way I am...
