The more I look at them the more I also think that lighter is the way to go. Having said that....what I know about wheels or any external mods could be written on an Amoeba's Beret label :wacko:

 

I seem to be going in a different direction to everyone else - hoping that size doesn't matter :blush:

They look lovely on black! but again I wonder how they'd do on gunmetal like the bronze ones.... will add them to the list of colours to photoshop later this weekend :)

I am not loving that, I feel that because your zed is gm you should be trying to lift the colour of the wheels slightly, rather than making them darker. Would you not consider a nice bright colour? :)

 

+1 :thumbs:

 

Gold or Bronze rims make me think of Scoobys :surrender: .... and you dont drive one of them :lol:

When you starting mentioning shadow chrome i was thinking, oh no, way to go to ruin the look of the car, but to be honest i think it looks really good, i reckon going brighter is a better move than going darker. Not sure about the purple myself. Shadow chrome is the way to go.

Had a play in aperture as I wanted to steal your great side on shot, only fair to share my highly amateur efforts. Hope you don't mind me butchering your work, I'm only just getting used to using it.

0% finance on a mountain bike! :scare:

 

How much was it? One of those seriously uprated ones? Last time I had a bike, was when I was 12, so I'm totally out of it. I remember trek doing some for nearly a grand. How much more expensive can they be? Unless you are a professional sportsperson?

Here's a couple of grey photoshops i did on mine... Been thinking about doing it for an eternity, but nothing ever happens :D

 

I've had dark wheels on every car i've owned... but there's something about the silver rays that just... works...

A lot more expensive! An average to low spec full suspension MTB is usually around £2k if you ride regularly. Mine was £3900! I could have spent a lot more, believe me. Sounds crazy but when you do it several times a week and putting it through a lot of abuse, you really do notice where the money goes. A professional downhill racer could easily have a bike valued at £6000 +

 

Great photoshops guys, I think bronze is still my favourite but that last grey one looks great too. Still undecided!

The poll is currently sat at a 50/50 split, which is really helpful :lol:

 

I know changing the colour of your wheels is often an alternative to getting new rims (and the cheaper of the two), believe me I've considered chaging the colour of mine a lot, but I honestly think the standard colour of the Rays looks best on a GM car.

 

Except for maybe in Manphibian's pics..... I'm 50/50 after seeing those :stir:

Have a look at Whackywill's as well - he has gold wheels (but on a black zed) - but you could photoshop the wheels straight over :)

Only problem with gold/bronze wheels is that it is typically a Subaru thing... I myself have a Gunmetal 350Z (04 plate) and I am toying with ideas on what colour to have them done in. i was thinking a slightly darker shade of grey to the bodywork maybe...

I was ready to say no... until I saw the picture! Actually looks really good, quite subtle but quite nice.

 

 

edit: oops looks like my vote made it go 50/50 again! haha
