New rims?

Post by MattyHills87 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 12:31 pm

My first post! :shock: So iv had my Astra SRI 1.4 since 2016 when the new number plate came out (66), Now i am thinking adding to it for the looks, With tinted rear windows, Maybe get a exhaust on it as well sometime with a air filter before i get the ECU mapped.. But i was thinking about getting these 18" Rims (pic below of new rims)i have 17" atm what do you guys think ? or getting pure black rims be better ?


This is my car atm nothing added all just stock as you would buy it.

I dislike red inside the rim, all black looks better for me.

Actually, I agree with Alanw and really like the red trim on the alloys shown. I think all black comes in to its own when you have other black trim on your car, otherwise, they look too prominent. The red just takes away too stark a contrast, IMO.

All very personal, though!

That's what I wanted to know. All black or the little bit of red go with the car, but silver rims looking at the pic of my car, might go better due to the car been red and has the silver lining over the doors. 😂

Silver rims all the way, but I am 'old fashioned' like that. I think the wheel gets lost in the arch if it is too dark, although I have put shadow chrome on a couple of cars in the past
