    Could you live with white wheels?

    So I'm thinking about getting some new wheels this summer for my gti. I really like the look of these and I can get a pretty good deal on them. The question is which finish? They offer the same wheel in a few colors and I'm really leaning on white. My car is sequoia green right now but it will be a darker almost jaguar green over the next winter. Any thoughts? Maybe some other wheels in white that may look good on it? Here are some photos for reference.

    Very difficult to pull off white or black wheels IMO.

    Yeah I agree on the white or black. I'm sick of seeing black so they're pretty much out. White looks good if you do it properly. The issue is too if I change my mind, and I will later down the road white is harder to resell. Green and gold has been done A LOT but it does look good. Decisions, decisions.

    The bottom ones look good. That or colour matched spokes and polished lips (I know they're 1-piece wheels, so quite a bit more work involved with that route).

    Perhaps, before spending money on new wheels, it would probably be a better idea to Photoshop them. That's how I picked my wheels. Got a pick, Pshop them on my car, purchased them

    Thanks yo!

    Here are my "fully assembled" modes of transportation. Unfortunately, the one with white wheels was too slow so it is still under the knife!
