My current wheels: 15x6.5 Real Racing R2 forged, 9.5 lbs.



What do you guys think of gold chaps on my car? Does it clash with my Zoom mirrors (do I need Runabouts for gold wheels?)

They clash a little bit, but by the time you get brake dust on them, it won't matter. Personally, I'd get something a little darker.

Gold and green does look nice but I agree the combination doesn't really suit the carbon zoom mirrors as well. You either have to get gold plated mirrors to match or go with either the silver or gunmetal wheel like you've shown.

I'd paint the mirrors BRG and keep the gold chaps, but I'm WAY biased towards that look. :oops:

Oh no...I'd stay with Gunmetal or Gold. Shame you cant get them in Bronze.

Greg,

Looks to me that the gold centers with the polished lip have a brighter look. If I were in your place I'd have a set of chrome runabout mirrors to go with the brighter wheels - just to complete the look.

But heck, they look pretty good the way you've presented them with the carbon fiber mirrors you've got.

Go for it!

Greg, you can check out Sid's FS Thread to see what Joey is talking about. UBER pimp looking wheels, IMHO.
