Right now the car is all murdered out, with the exception of the stripes to break it up a bit. IMO they look great because they really 'POP' off the R.<p>Anyways, been thinking of going for a less conservative approach when it ccomes to wheel color on the R41's. Basically.... not silver, grey, black, any shade between grey and black.<p>You get the idea.<p>Any suggestions?

Re: Wheel Color (lan)

I've got Nordkap. That would just really throw people off.<p>Oddly enough, helmet and his Fikse orange wheel thread got me thinking about a new choice of colors...

Re: Wheel Color (xman03)

Chilled, got those wheels on a black Volvo? or can some chop some orange onto mine? I'm very curious as to how it would look now...<p>Picking up another set of R41's from Giraffe when I get settled in Colorado... so I want to go a totally different route with them. A bit more wild if you know what I mean<p>Orange wheels with color matched roof and trunk spoiler, and mirror caps might look kind kinda hot!<p>Now ya got me thinking...

Re: Wheel Color (Helmut Ranff)

Just a thought, but my buddy just almost bought a GSXR 750 that had a custom paint job to look like the fenders where glowing like hot steel. it looked beyond sick i am trying to find a pic. it'd be more expensive but would defiantly be something out there and different.<p><A HREF="http://shawngordon.vox.com/library/photo/6a00c2252082f08fdb00fae8c99cad000b.html" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://a5.vox.com/6a00c2252082f08fdb00fae8c99cad000b-500pi" BORDER="0"></A><br /><p><br><A HREF="http://shawngordon.vox.com/library/photo/6a00c2252082f08fdb00fad69824d70004.html" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://a7.vox.com/6a00c2252082f08fdb00fad69824d70004-500pi" BORDER="0"></A><br /><p><A HREF="http://shawngordon.vox.com/library/photo/6a00c2252082f08fdb00fad69824d70004.html" TARGET="_blank">Rims and discs reflecting wheel paint</A> from <A HREF="http://shawngordon.vox.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://shawngordon.vox.com/</A><p>not exactly the pics i was looking for ( yes its a toy car) but just for a visual aid. i think it'd be pretty trick, you could just get your black rims painted on the inside to liven things up and that'd save you some coin instead of getting new rims. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><i>Modified by Rally_Junky at 7:01 PM 6-8-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: Wheel Color (Rally_Junky)

I have been having urges to switch over to a red theme: red wheels, red stripes...

Re: Wheel Color (GiRaff3)

I really love the car blacked out, but now that I've got it where I like it...I see other cars blacked out, and I want to be different. Thats why I bought a R!

Re: (Chilled Man)

Bright orange wheels on a Sonic R would look absolutely WICKED IMO.<p>Only problem I see with doing the inside of the wheel, all the brake dust would keep them dirty all the time.

black wheels with chrome lip looks tacky and cheap imho. i think whatever color you do you need to match the stripes. dont get me wrong the stripes look awesome but you limit yourself in wheel color to pretty much dark wheels.
