I'm with everyone else. Mount those on your car and post pics. That purple is awesome.

I agree with most here. Mount them. If you can't tell the difference between the color of the rims and the color of your car, and you think it looks good, then who cares what anyone else thinks. It will certainly be unique and perhaps make a statement.

I would add a purple racing strip or two to tie in the wheel color. For some of us it would be our worst nightmare, but hey, why not give it a try.

I agree with most here...they are a sweet shade of purple. I have no color sense so not sure what goes, but damn they are sexy.

I'm going to approach this via complete idiocy: The wheel color are a very appealing and bold royal purple (meaningless to you). based on shitty googling:

http://www.colourblindawareness.org/...our-blindness/
http://health.howstuffworks.com/huma...blindness2.htm

I am assuming you have either Deuteranopia or Protanopia... Imagine the wheel's 'purple' to be a shiny and reflective version of yellow (based on shitty google, both forms of color blindness can still distinguish some shades of yellow from brown/blue/bleh).

in terms of dark brown (1) to neon yellow (10), I'd subjectively say its about a 7.5 due to the glossy coat finish. I think the wheels provide decent contrast via ultramarine (4) from a shiny perspective.

That said, I personally would not rock purple on ultramarine, but I think the others that previously voiced out would love seeing such a bold combo and would definitely go against the generic/norms of black/bronze/gold/etc.

Hopefully someone else here more skillful than I could photoshop the purple to an equivalent intensity of yellow so you can have a better idea of how purple-y it looks.

p.s. mount the suckers and post pics.

I think the problem for him his, that color looks the same as several other colors including ultramarine so he can't decipher the difference or the way it would look to other people on his car.

Yup. I knew they were purple when I bought them. Bought them from a member here and got a great deal on the wheels+tires so it was almost a no brainer. Plus even though I can't see purple, I really do like the colour (I can't distinguish it from blue but to me, it's a really nice shade of blue) and I knew they would be very aggressive on an ultramarine.

My only reason for this thread is that as much as I might think something looks good or not, my colour matching skills aren't that great for obvious reasons, so while I may like what I see, it might be completely obscene to people with normal vision.

And I know people are going to say "Who cares what other people think? It's your car. If you like it, do it. To each their own" but this comes down to more about an impairment that I have instead of "personal preference".

But as a lot of you have suggested, I will lower my car when I get the springs and mount the wheels on there to see how the car sits and looks with them on. Then I will ask for the opinion again!

All different shades, though. Just can't tell some colours apart.
