IMHO I think that on the right car they can look good but can seriously spoil the look of a car if it doesn't suit it. You have to take extra special care of them aswell, not really everyday wheels, just for shows, etc. If you can remember what mine look like round the rim then you'll know what I'm on about.
You've got some ideas of designs I take it, why not post up some piccies
I love'm a little chrome detailing (very little, not too much) and then the car stands out, my car can take it, though I have none, but it takes a good deal of skill and judgement not to make the car look like a trinket for a cheap jewellery stall.
On some cars they look awesome (in that new Nelly music video - the one with the fit lass from Destiny's Child ! there is a Merc with HUGE chrome wheels - and it looks stunning), on other cars they look terrible.
Would need to see what wheels you were thinking of before i can vote.....
The team dynamics chrome look isnt a true chrome finish as such, looks nice and shiny but isn't chrome, if it was 18's priced for 1.1k would be a bargin.
Si, chrome is really only a show thing as the width of tyre the skyline uses it won't be long before they stone chip and then start to flake or weather quickly. As said sure ppl with a split rim and diamond cut finish etc can vouch that they look nice for a short time, unless u use the car twice a year they get haggered quickly!
Think wisly before spending the cash, get some mag alloys or carbon jobs mate! Nice and light!
Your just gonna have to wait and see, bit of a big job like but i think it may be worth it!!! Hopefully I will have it finished for the meet on the 20th, but you wont be there will you kempy???? Didnt think u were going.....
Si, we're gonna try to get there, as I said in the other thread we are going away for the night but we will try to get back (Can't pass up Sunday pub lunch now, can I, especially if I get Sue to drive)
reminds me of Americans driving some sort of Lexus (aka Toyota; just a little more expensive ). Many of them have these chrome wheels; too flashy/too MaxPower for me but then again you can't argue about taste can you :smokin: so get them if you want them and to heck with people who don't like 'em (like me :smokin: ).
