Grey car red wheels?
« on: October 15, 2009, 07:19:08 pm »
I know I'm probably going to get some abuse for saying this but...I can't help wondering what this would look like. If I was to SS my grey Abarth I think I'd consider powder coating the wheels red. I like the titaniums but think they look abit dull on the grey car compaired to the petals and 10 spokes. I also like the white wheels but don't think they'd stay very white. Hmmm could be the poor (wo)man's GT3 maybe :whistle:

    While we are on the subject of red wheels, I'm probably going to get some abuse for this as well, Bosso nova White red stripes and the Petal wheels (dark grey painted part) painted red?

    Any one good with paint shop?

    Red wheels, now there's a novel idea :whistle: You'll have Mick along in a minute ;D
    I think it would look good on the White (it does on mine and Micks) but I'm not 100% about the grey. Everyones taste is different so just do what you feel :thumb:

    Do you mean this?

    I thought leave the polished parts and paint the rest

    the karl schnorr tuned car had red wheels, although the car was white and they weren't ss style, it gives you a rough idea how it would look.

    I've seen one white German A500 with red Oz 35th Anniversary wheels. Quite interesting look.

    The wheels are these:
