View Full Version : Gold or Bronze on SSM tC
12-08-2005, 12:05 AM
Just as the title states how do you guys think gold or bronze wheels would look on a silver tC. Im sitting in bed with a bad sprained ankle tossing the idea around. Either a 5 spoke wheel or something like that in either 17 or 18 inch size with a trd drop on a silver tc. Would it look good or do you guys think itll look like garbage. Like i said im just tossing the idea around. :eyebrow: Maybe if you guys could someone could photoshop one or if anyone has pictures of one. Thanks for the help.

Not even a yay or nay for it huh? ok lol

go gold ftw!
bronze is almost always second to gold for every color imo.

I gotta find some nice gold wheels now. Thanks for the opinion and does ftw stand for what i think it does?

ftw = for tha win!
btw, anything with a nice polished lip will work. heck, even a straight gold wheel would look great. im picturing these right here:
now, you dont have to shell out an arm and a leg for these cuz many companies make the same looking wheel. 17x8 or something like that would be perfect and just plain amazing.

dont do it. would you wear a gold and silver chain at the same time. I wouldnt think so. there are tons of other colors to choose from for a SSM, but anything gold just wouldnt look good.

I thought about it too...
I seen a silver 350 with gold wheels.... and it was hott!!!
The again... it was a 350... so I guess its hott by default.
go for it and post soem pics. Help me out

Ive been thinking and i might do it. I mean if i dont like it ill just sell them thats all i mean its not like i have to be commited to them. Ill have them a little after christmas ill post pics of it when i do it. It may just look ok.

Gold = Flashy (Show), Unique
Bronze = Sleeper/Racing Inspired
I would go for gold, just my 2 cents between the two colors. I went w/Silver rims though for my SSM. There are pics in my website link.

I dont know im so torn now im thining of silver rims. I really wish i could just make up my mind i dont know why its so hard for me to decide i really dont lol. I know itll be after the holidays but now im not sure what kind of wheels to go with. Lol i wish it was like regualr shopping wish i could pull my car in and try different ones on but i cant. Ill decide one day

Yeah, I had the same feelings before I went w/mine. It took me awhile to research what would look good and then just being patient to get them (2 1/2 Months).
My alternate..... Silver or Gunmetal Volk GT-7!!! Then I saw someone on here w/them or some knock off so I went w/some unique but expensive! :nails:

If i decide to go 17's what offset should i get? whats the stock 17's offset does anyone know?
12-16-2005, 10:58 PM
There should be a sticky in the General tC forum, but I believe it is a +45mm offset.

So what would a 17x7 with a 40 offset look like....im sorry for these questions im just not good with offsets. Thanks. Would it look like stock almost? How does offset work the higher the number the more itll stick out or the further in it sits?

It will probably be close to OEM.
Here is some resouce information http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/brochure/info/tmpInfoWheelOffsets.jsp
same related info here...
The experts can chime in here if they want. I'd say stay away from negative offsets, no real use of going into staggered fitment unless you are going widebody or lots of money on your hand for maintenance.
