Just wondering what people think. Gold wheels with a polished lip on a silver car. I have seen pictures I think it looks good but I could understand why it may not to other people.

What you should do is post up a few examples if you have any it will make deciding easier...

But I voted it looks good...I can picture your car with that set-up.

yea i agree with EK2.0, really need some examples and what kind of car are you thinking about putting em on?

THey look good. Get some 19 inch ADVAN Siennas GII if these are for a GS430. I have a pic of those wheels on a silver supercharged solara at home, they look hot.

I like it too :thumbsup:

My personal preference is for the gold to be a little more bronze then yellow if they are going to be put on a silver car.

DOOO it! I think it would look very nice

Sure, I think it'll look good. As you can see in the example above, the owner tied the bronze look in by having his door handles painted the same. Tying in the color on the car would be good too.

What colour is your interior? I think the gold might clash with anything too loud (like burgundy). The silver is a nice neutral colour and I think the combination looks swell. :thumbsup:

Depends on the wheel, bronze/gold typically only look good on dark colors, blacks and whites.

Something silver like this would look hawt, while maintaining the class.

IMO, with a silver car you would be better off going maybe with a gunmetal w/ polished lip. Gold clashes with the color of the car to much and looks out of place..
Alpha has them for his silver civic, and they look nice....

when i pictured it in my head, i thought it would look weird, but when i see a pic of it it honestly doesn't look too bad, but not something i would personally get, but hey, whatever you prefer, it's your car. i say do it if you want to! :thumbsup:

I think it would look awesome , I was going to put that kind of setup on my 7

i'm picking up some gold rims as well.
i can't wait! (no polished lip though, i might get it later!)
