IMHO, gold rims are ugly on any color car. But even more so on a silver car.

wouldn't look bad imo if you went with a classic design like BBS mesh, and if it was more of a low profile gold, not like the gold on stock subaru's, but darker it would look good on a tastefully modded car. just my two cents

I think gold rims only works on white or black cars

I dont think it looks that good on a silver car but thats only my opinion =D

On a Impreza thats a different case

There were 2 cars at bimmerfest similar to what you're looking for. A 1 series coupe, silver with gold rims, and a Z4 M coupe, some sort of grey with gold rims

I'm curious to see how gold would look. I have silver Work VS-XX sitting at home, I just need to get my tires mounted on them.

And just because I do not take pictures and show the world, it does not mean my car is not modded.
