Default Poll. Wheel color

Hi guys and gals,

I have been looking for a while for used 15" rally wheels with no luck. I want to use my almost new studded snows tires over the 4/2 pots. If I bite the bullet and buy new Enki's I can't really decide between white or gold for my car (white).

My question is which color do you think would be easier to sell when the time comes?

Thanks for your opinion.

I think gold on white looks awesome.
Ask Drakar, white on white look amazing, but is a bitch to keep clean. I would think gold would be easier for resale in the future also.


What enkei's would you be getting?

I would think that gold would be easier then white since it seems to be like a Subaru staple of sorts.

As a plus they hide dirt/brake dust better. You can also just not clean them and do what I do and call that color brake dust bronze.

I just assumed the quote was for the RC-G4. Have always run steelies in the past for the bounce off curb factor. If I go this route I will need take good care of them.

wouldn't it be cheaper to get tires that fit the stock rims?

2000 rims are the same as 2001, right? 2001 clears FHI 4 pots....
then get some bling summer rims.
