    everything happens for a reason...

    yesterday i curbed 1 of my wheels... pi55ed me right off as they were immaculate and were very costly due to being refinished in pearlescent metallic white... but i decided i can't let it get me down so i've decided i'm going to refurb this wheel and respray the other wheel on the same side as this.. but do them in black. Basically one side of my car will have my wheels in pearlescent metallic white, the other side will have black... do u think this is gay or original? either way i'm doing it but just wondered on ur opinions! U'd never see a black wheel at the same time as a white one, it'd just depend what side of the car ur looking at.

    I think this would be like wearing one trainer and one Dr Martin, you either love it or hate it.

    My personal opinion would be just to get it sorted back to the wat it was

    it may be original but...

    I must say alot of people I know, WOULD see it as gay, good on you for willing to try it though.


    I'd just get it fixed back to the way it was.

    Put the two black on the front and the two white on the back, just blame the front ones on brake dust!

    apart from anything else i think the white wheels suit your mota perfectly so id keep them like that.

    up to you tho mate- its a brave move

    at the end of the day its not hard to spray them back to white again, so therefore, i think i will do them black... if its a gay move... so be it. People said modifying an estate was gay... not a single person thought it was a good idea. In america i've seen a few cars with different coloured wheels, in fact, i've seen some where the whole car is sprayed two different colours, one half blue, one half yellow for example, each side has different colour rims. :?

    I think i'll give it a shot, see how it comes out!

    I wouldnt sprayem black, you will lose the wheel into the car when looking at it, whites gonna make em stant out and show the size extra.
