OBP - How Low Can He Go??

Default Opinions - Purple Rims?

Hey guys, the last few days Ive been thinking that I need SOMETHING NEW on the Subie... I have an 06 WRX OBP, Im debating back and forth of what to do before I go crazy or get bored. lol. I currently have purple suede interior (headliner, panels, etc) and need something Fresh/New...

Currently It looks Like this... 17'' Drag Rims with low profile tires...



Im starting to think I need to go bigger or do something different, a little more aggressive... Which brings me to this. I have 4 options -

1.) Purple Rims like this color/style, keeping the 17's, possibly keeping the chrome lip?... or no...


or



2.) Getting new 18'' rims and tires - selling my current setup - and painting the new 18''s purple (same color)

3.) Paint them GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD, keeping the 17's, but then would not match my purple suede interior/theme. This is basically what my current setup would look like if Gold



4.) Or to just keep them how they look now, but keep in mind... I wanna do something different/new...



Opinons? Dont forget to vote

3: LA Lakers, LSU & the Minnesota Vikings think purple & gold go together.
so did my old HS, in fact.

vote?
poll, pole and poal not found.

seriously, it's your car - do what you want.
it's not like any of the people who come in this thread and scream "nooooooo!" will ever see the car in person.
do what makes you happy.

ekw said it perfectly its your car do what you want and i agree with that completley. personally im not a fan of the purple at all. the gold i like. or even what you have now. personally if your windows are tinted ( which i think they are cause your from AZ ) and i was walking by your car randomly i wouldnt look inside if you had tinted windows id check out the outside so it doesnt really matter if you have a purple headliner or not.

I'm new and posts are not enough to vote directly. Haha, anyhow, I can still vote through reply!
Keep the 17's, Paint them Purple, if I were you.
That's nice and would be more convenient for modification, I'm not a troublesome person! Anyhow, still depends on your own opinion.

I would like it, something different.

When I saw this thread, I thought of hella flush with stretched tires, and bright wheels.
Don't do that.
