New wheels - colour choices and spacers

Just picked up a new set of wheels. Keep them gold or go silver ?

Also due to the size and offset and the PP front suspension I will need to run 8mm spacers up front. Should I run spacers on all 4 corners or just the fronts.

Thanks

fyi, that getcoloreffects.com site got blocked by my browser addon:

" Title: uBlock filters – Badware risks

! The purpose is to at least ensure a user is warned of the risks ahead."


i vote pink as well. or lime green.

silver is boring. silver is average. silver is typical. silver is a camry, it's the safe option. be a shining star of color.

Silver goes well with your paint color. If it was my car, I would choose silver, but I think it needs to be accompanied by a 1" drop.

Btw, how did you change the color of your wheels like that? I'd like to do the same to my own to help myself make decisions lol.

Black would look cool

Check your wheels can run spacers, I had 2 sets of wheels that wouldn’t fit spacers under 20mm as the recess for the studs were further out than where they needed to be, and so the stud would hit and prevent the wheel being bolted on.

You should definitely run spacers on the rear, and a larger spacer at that as the wheel doesn’t poke out of the guard as much as the front

Silver, because I'm old. Nice wheels btw.

And yes spacers all around with appropriate studs.

For spacers, you can use a slip-on up to 3mm the way the car sits. Any slip-on spacer thicker than 3mm and under 10mm, you need extended wheel studs.


Spacers 10mm or thicker, you should get bolt-on spacers.

I prefer silver, all though a bronze or gunmetal could work.. I like darker color wheels.


ARP extended wheel studs will give you room for slip on spacers. 2.5" is perfect for what you are after, I run 8mm spacers with plenty of threads.

You should be removing the rear hub to install studs but it's possible to install them without removing if you are willing to do some trimming, by cutting the nipple off at the end of the stud.

Run spacers all around with proper stud length. Either color looks okay but I'd probably just keep them gold if the wheels are already gold.
