What color?

Alright I'm not sure... I thinK I've decided on the GT4 wheels. They are basically Ford GT replicas. I just don't know which color to get them in... Chrome or Hypercoating. The site describes their hypercoating as a liquid mercury in that it changes shades of grey depending on how the light is hitting it. I'm tempted to go chrome cuz I think I might get the car repainted in Black in the future. But still not sure. So lets here youre thoughts. Here's a link to both wheels. They have pictures on the site.

I was thinking the same thing. You should put some pictures of your car in your gallery. Another vote for black here... color dependant.

It would depend on the color of your car, weather where you live, whether or not they salt the roads, do you use it for daily driver, is it parked inside a garage most of the time and how meticulous you are about cleaning and maintenance.

ahah. Alright. The Tbird is Red. It's illegal to salt the roads in Washington state so no salt but it is my DD and it is cleaned usually every weekend as long as it's warm. I think I might try and find some cheap winter tires for her and slap them on the old wheels and use that for the winter. Easier that way you know. And I can't put pics up... I'm deployed Anyway you all have a good one.

I figuredyou'd ***** about wanting to change the car to black. And Chrome on a black car is beautiful. Chrome period is beautiful not ugly at all.

go to the inner city and look at some caprices, you'll get sick of chrome very quick.


as for the color, black tbirds are a dime a dozen(not that they are bad), but bright red is rare to see on V8 birds.
