Hey all,

I have white wheels on my silver Skyline, and as my old silver Skyline with white wheels proved, their a bitch to keep clean. Also, my rear pads are some kind of VERY dusty performance pad, so even though I washed it on Friday, the rear wheels are already grey with dust.

So, I made a photoshop of the car with black wheels, and was just wondering what you guys thought about it. I also cleared the indicator and shaved the GT badge. I think it looks pretty good!

The white Enkei's are awesome wheels. If you did paint them I'd do them more of a matte black but personally I wouldn't change the colour, just wash the wheels more often then the whole car, doesn't take THAT long!

The problem is, it looks exactly like my old car. I never loved the old white wheels, I just bought them because they were available at the time.
These wheels will become my race wheels when I can afford some others and when I start to take it out a bit more, so they'll fill up with dust pretty quickly. Plus I like the dark sinister look the black rims give it.

Let us know if you do Rhys. I know a guy that does top work, a lil expensive but he fixes any gutter rash/dents/scrapes, completely buffs them back and then paints them, looks killer.
