Getting back to working on my saab 900 spg and I was thinking of addressing the rims and tyres. 16inch rims are just about dead for decent tyre choices and I think that 17"s might work well, even on such an old bodystyle. The trouble is, the rims I like, the OZ Racing Leggenda are only available in Flat Black or Gloss White.

You are watching: White car black wheels

I do not want to do "murdered out", while that look might look good, it"s a pain to keep clean and might attract the wrong attention. What do people think of gloss white on a black car?

Here it is an on Black fiat 500

edit

Funny enough, I found a black SPG with white 17" rims. I think looks pretty nice

I like the white wheels. I"ve started to cringe every time I see black wheels - very over done and most detract from the cars look instead of enhance it

Very over done is right.

I think with white on black, the style of the Fiat"s wheels above are more suited than the Saab. Something about fewer, larger spokes on the wheel looks a little strange with white on black.

That"s just my opinion though and I"m certainly no stylist. Go for what you like!


I"m glad you mentioned "gloss" white. I really don"t mind black or white wheels as long as they are gloss.


I had them for track/autocross. They looked good buy boy did they get dirty fast, especially with any kind of aggressive brake pads....


In reply to irish44j:

Brake dust is a badge of honor, though. I"m amused by how my drive to our local rallycross site makes my Volvo"s silver wheels brown by the time I get there.

well, the wheels that are on the fiat are what I am considering for my Saab, so we agree there. I think rally wheels suit the swede well considering the history they have in rallying.

Thankyou everyone, I was just unsure how it would look. I do not see white wheels on cars around here very often, so I had no metrics to go against in my decision.


Useless without a BTCC Dymag search. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=dymag+btcc&id=35FD735E9EB3A47100438B0DF79C502F033633BD&FORM=IQFRBA Actually that's a pretty crap first search except for the best action pic of a Cavalier you'll ever see.

My winter wheels are white. I only got them because they were the cheapest available at the time, but I don"t hate the look.

Plus eleventy bazillion. I hate black rims. I like white rims on many cars. I think they"d look good on a black car.


They"re not too bad.

I"ve also started to become a big fan of seeing bronze wheels on black cars. Idk why.

White wheels are best.

I am sticking with 15s on my Saab.

Tire rack shows 41 options for 16s with a number of summer performance options, that doesn"t seem too limited.
