Calling All Rim Specialists!!

Hey!

I've got a 2003 Toyota Corolla, I'm looking to put rims on her (She's completely stock right now)

My dilemma...I'm not sure what rims will match.

She is "champagne" which is a beige/tan/gold colour, and I'm not completely convinced that chrome matches gold

please help me out,

Razz

I have found that black SRT4 wheels go along with beige cars very nicely. :wink2:

depends waht car it is. The corolla is a bit of a bubble compared to the streamline EM2. I like black wheels because they are discreet and not in-your-face.

THey're also played out IMO.

They stand out more than regular silver wheels imo lol

I don't think they stand out at all. Not only is everyone doing it, the wheels get hidden w/the tires. Take both Newyorker's and my car for example. Light colored paint+black wheels=invisible wheels.

I suppose it looks better than just taking the wheelcap out and revealing the steel factory ugly ass wheels as some people do anyways.

Maybe it's just me personally. I pay attention to people's wheels and such...most people don't, maybe.

Chrome matches gold fine. Just don't get anything larger than 16" or 17", otherwise you'd run the risk of looking silly. Small cars and big wheels don't really mix well, at least in my view. And in many cases anything larger than 19" looks silly on any private vehicle.

Five spoke alloys are always a popular and attractive choice.

Personally, I don't think it looks any different from that. If I have dark wheels, the "rims" need to be polished, like this:

Personally, I think black on black is unattractive. Heck, even 14" or 15" PepBoys' spinning hub caps. Gee Mary.

If you want to have black on black, might as well take out the stock hub caps and turn them into sleepers.
