This is really starting to bug me. this must be a trend or something. I got Black Rims with a polished lip 3 years ago. Now my car looks like every other import in Calgary. Has anyone else noticed this or am I just running into an unusual amount of people with this style of rim.

It's okay man, soon people will be sporting silver rims and you can get on with your life.

IT's like that with any trend, look at the fucking sloganizer sigs.

Has anyone else noticed this or am I just running into an unusual amount of people with this style of rim. That is the way it always works... If you want to be unique, you always gotta stay ahead of the game and change your wheels out fairly frequently and take chances on unproven styles. If you stumble onto something hot, it is a guarantee that other will do the same thing as time marches on.

I have been saying for 3 years that black rims are gonna get hot and it has. That is because it does look good! If you want to be original, you just gotta pull out the wallet and do something that nobody else is yet...

Or buy really expensive wheels from a reputable brand that is not just a trend name and drive a car that is rarely modified (or modified properly) :D

sell your wheels then, they arent permanant. buy some ssr mesh formulas

I did the big wheels, lowered stock bodywork look 12 years ago (mostly because I was broke ass). Now it's called the "clean" look. :rofl:

All my cars share that look still to this day heh.

Only way to be unique is buy wheels that the general population cannot afford to buy.

seriously though, your wheels are 3 years old. Some people change them every 6 months... Just think that you were ahead of your time... If you keep them long enough, they will go out of style and you will be unique again.

That works really well. Everyone asks me now where I got my OZ Monte Carlos from, if they're specials from OZ. They're just fucking old... back in the mid 90's, every car had OZ monte carlos, they made 'em even in 14" sizes!

You mean I can start rockin' the 16 year old 5 spoke American Racing rims and they'll be cool again? My father had them on our brand new '89 accord.. it was so :bigpimp:

Van wheels from the 80's. Powder-coat black, angle-grinder to the interesting bits. Kinda like black-with-polished-rims with a mullet.

Copper turns green with oxidation, you'd have to coat the wheels with saran wrap or something. Nice name by the way! :)

black polished lip is money, if its like 3 pc forged and painted black...but dont paint the faces of your velox rims painted black and have the rim polished it just looks stupid, if youre going to paint your wheels black, go all black

You know what they say "black looks good with everything" so someone got black rims and then BAM everyone else wanted em. I personally enjoy the silver rims. I enjoy mine very much, even tho its time to move to a different set of shoes.

I thought about getting black with a polished lip, but im actually a big fan right now of the rally look rims. Smaller 15-16" single five spoke rims with a bit of a dish on em. I enjoy the white and the gunmetal a lot. After painting my car silver I'll probably end up with gunmetal grey rims.

But I think we should all make bets on which color will be the next craze. I'm gonna say... Carbon Fibre!
