Gold/Bronze Rims - Test Fitting?

Hey, just wondering if someone in the GTA has gold/bronze rims that I can have test fitted on my car. I would need to try on like 1-2 rims max.

Looking to see what red on gold/bronze actually looks like.

I prefer multi-spoke OZ/Enkei style.

Or, if you have a red brz/frs with gold/bronze rims than that makes things easier and I would just like to see them in person on a red twin.

Thanks

Not too sold on the gold, but the bronze looks pretty sexy.

gold and red needs to be done right, or it'll look tacky like the very first photo above

this guy has it done right. @nomuken Just look at that gorgeous.

I've got bronze ones... not sure when, but you could try them against your car sometime.

Where did you buy the plastidip in that color?
I want to try for fun, looks surprisingly good. Also how many coats?

And thanks for the pictures guys...I think I'll plasti dip my stock first to get a real feel because I noticed some styles don't worry for me in gold, while some others look cool.

Will try the simplest alternative first, plasti dip because I'm liking what i see.

I don't know about "tacky", more like epic build. Been watching this thread since I joined.

The first picture looks tacky cuz the wheels are poking out and no stance. This is the same car now, could use some red Brembo caliper covers.

To each their own, I guess...

But I think that looks horrible.

The "gold" diffuser kit, the black vinyl'd section on the trunk...

There's just way too much going on. It's very busy.

Again, to each their own. If the driver is happy with his car, more power to him!

The wheels don't look bad though; I guess I should mention that since it's kind of the focal point of this thread LOL.

Not my car, but in a pile of pictures I've taken over the years:



This one is my car, with bronze wheels (if you want to photoshop the wheels)

A friend of mine from Montreal has a good hook up as he does a bunch of plasti dip work. Just shop around locally for the best prices.
The Vintage Gold is a metallic and costs more.

Send me a message and I can give you some pro tips
