Not me ;)

But you can't slap bronze wheels on any color car and expect to be a baller. You have to find the right rim and have the right color and type of car to pull it off.

usually black or blue is pretty good for gold rims.. I don't think it's a fad.. I thought gold rims got popular when the 2.5RS came out.

Well I hate chrome wheels! I am so sick and tired of them it's not funny! So I think bronze wheels are a fad but I think alot of people will still have them in say 5 years. The more and more fads come out the greater variety of wheel colours we have on the market and the less chrome we see :D

Those are ice wheels but they are too big. A 15" or 16" will save weight, cost less, and look better.

these are my favourite wheels and they don't come in 16" and 15" is too small

a 15inch with the right drop would look so much hotter than a 17 inch...trust me I am toying with so many wheels right now on my 96 Hatch...

unless you have larger brakes that need larger wheels...but...it IS your ride and not mine...

everything's a damn fad, just build your car how you like it.

I like the gold/bronze rims looks hawt! No fad, if poeple like the look it's always going to be "in". It's like the old school rims they were"in" then not in, then it now is a must have. The gold/bronze rims will be the same. UMMMMMMMM platform shoes & hooker boots :dunno:

yeah who cares if its a fad.. just get what you think looks good. Does it always have to be about fitting the mould?

All wheel colours are "fads" in one way or another. They are popular for a while then they go away for a while. It has always been like this. The only colour that never fades and comes back is the typical silver colour...

As long as car manufacturers keep bringing out gold wheels, they'll never go out of style :)

yes, they are polished, because Japanese tuning houses put $200 wheels on cars with $75,000+ invested into them :rolleyes: those are all chrome.
