Question What color rims with Red PT?

I own a red PT and I have a set of Koni Zero-Ins after having them for over a year I have seen many many cars with the same rims including another PT!

I want to just have them Powder Coated a single color anyone have any ideas?

I'm leaning towards neon yellow rims or Gold. I love the neon yellow on red cars! Kinda looking for something unique to slap on my baby!

Thanks in advance,

Jimmy.

Also, post pics!

IMO, chrome looks good on any color. But if you got a theme going on already, add to that theme. For example: "Murdering out" go with black rims, "Bling" chrome, "VIP" polish usually, "Stock look" silver, "JDM" any color not already mentioned lol.

I would stick with something that doesnt really ever go out of style, aluminum, chrome etc.

The murdered look is a fad imho, just like it was the fad to have the rims that keep on spinning when you stop.

However I have seen some cars on youtube that are black with a lime green that I thought looked good, not sure if it is a fad thing cause I dont see it alot.

Good luck

If you want to be different then you are on the right track with the neon. Only a few would do those for obvious reasons. Or spend the money for a set that most can't or wont afford. Murdered, well even those that can't afford rims pull there hubcaps off and run ther stock black steels and they think there style'n! Enough said!

There ought to be a law against ricing out a Cruiser. I'm not against yellow wheels, but only a Honsububishi.



The above is just the opinion of an old grouch. Your opinion may differ.

One thing I found out, you have to have your car's accessories match the wheels, otherwise it looks odd. On mine, I'm moving away from more chrome simply because I like the satin black wheels, however the polished shaved edge does go well with the rest of the car, and the black wheels sort of give it the matched set look - Shoes match the Hat....

Oh, also the reason I switched from the Chrome tails to the Bermuda Blacks is they match the wheels and top much better...



Also, based on our earlier PM conversation, you need to think about the finish - i.e. flat, satin, gloss, semi-gloss, etc.

I am wanting a gloss finish. I am actually trying to stay away from chrome... to me it's too flashy (which is probably the point) I like colors that stick out, but chrome is to much for me.
