White on White - Yay or Nay?
My goal for the wheels was to powdercoat spokes black and dish white... tried doing it with plastidip but got lazy and never finished. I think that is still my plan but I don't hate this lol

What do you guys think?? I got my flamesuit on, fire away

I wanted to hate it, I really did...

Actually I think that looks great!

I like it man. Original for sure and that's key!

E_cox310 04-25-2013 09:49 PM

I like the original to be honest. The white doesn't look bad though.

mighted1987 04-25-2013 10:02 PM

not bad, would look better black spokes and white lips/dish like your planning!

Mighty 04-25-2013 10:10 PM

I definitely think the wheels need some black, but that car looks awesome.

Looks great. I once had a white Camaro with white wheels, I always liked that look. I shouldn't have looked though, you're giving me ideas.

I love your car dude, I prefer the way it looks now without the white rimes. Have you considered black rims with a silver lip?

Jay_C123 04-26-2013 05:15 PM

I honestly already thought to myself imma hate it but WOW man that actually looks CLEAN

The white on white looks great.

After my wheels were white, I've gotten a lot more compliments driving around. At the same time I'm sure 100x more people are in their cars going "RICEE!!!" lol

Some people will like it, others will not. I thought I would hate it but I didn't... didn't have time to finish it before Fabulous Ford so just rolled with it. Still on the fence though my original plan is still very possible since a local does good powdercoat for cheeeeaaap.

Hmm haven't thought of that. Interesting combo thanks! Gonna have my friend try to photochop it lol

I love white on white

I think the original plan would look gnarly :)

I love the whole paint set up on the car (black on white) but the rims are just not for me. I think the black on white rims would look great on your car but just a different set of rims. But its your car and it deffinitly stands out from the croud!

Woooooooooooooooooow thanks man!! That definitely just helped me make up my mind. I like the all white but dammmn gotta go with my original plan now that you gave me a visual image

I prefer the wheels as they are. Whatever you go with be sure to post some pics of the final design.

ImminentRueage 05-11-2013 02:59 PM

Not sure if you've gone through with this yet, but I think I'd at least do a rendering with a white center cap. Also White Calipers would look decent.

BleedinBlue 05-12-2013 02:10 PM

That's a really, really tough call between all three options. The current is gorgeous, but so is the white and black renditions. All three are stand outs and are/would be very unique.

Cockygt500 05-12-2013 02:18 PM

I think the all white rims look the best. Makes the whole car flow good and helps make the detail in the rims stand out. The black center seems to hide the detail on the spokes. Just my thoughts though.
