    "you guys are mean...my friend's gonna do the painting and he's a professional". Love that quite. But seriously...SO do it...get tired of it in 6 months when you see posers with cars NOT decent like yours overdoing it...then change it & try different caps + wheel color.
    Easy way to change the look of that 1952 Chevy. Since the car looks done otherwise. Why ask for advice? Not a big undertaking it's hard to redo later.
    Try living in Las Vegas - holy crap...
    "my car's a '50s custom...It should do well in the Viva Las Vegas show this year", a guy told me once.
    ...well ((and it was a '67 Chevy truck with bad primer job and red (Chevy Rallye!)) wheels...no, it's not 1950s anything.
    Oh! But if you put skulls OR LOTS of Iron Crosses...you're golden! Remember teh Scheider Cams logo? Now every fake "chopper" builder shirt they sell at JC Penney has a rip off of that cross logo as their logo.
    that as their logo!

  10. Here's my red wheels. Come on.......are they that bad? They came with the new Coker tires that I bought from my Dad. Sh!t, 5 powdercoated rims and 5 Coker classic radials with ribbed trim rings and spider caps for the price of 3 of the tires. Priceless! Well....not really, but a hell of a deal.

    Oh no, those first posters said the red wheels where NOT nice....I think they are wrong.
    And who cares what they think...it's your car build it how you want it...and if they don't like what you build, don't worry , they'll let you know. Oh and I have red wheels too.
     
  16. WTF!!!

    mine!

    Weren't red wheels an easy way "back then" to make your car stand out... tradition has to be worth something ...Is it because there are so many the some here hates 'em? Some people don't like the Beatles either, or Santa Claus, or Farrah's poster go figure...[​IMG]

    Here's mine... with a bright red interior it's pretty hard to say anything BUT red wheels would look as good IMO. I have toyed with the idea of painting them creme, but that's become about as cliche as red IMO.

    It seems many of you do not use red wheels....well that makes them uncommon and unique. I think I will get a set of red wheels and be different. Thanks!
