    Wondering what this would look like?

    Im getting my inspiration from this, except not the whole wheel, i just want the lip. Toyota Supra: New pictures =D - Houston-Imports.com

    The last pisture is my "photoshopped" version, and it looks like sh**. Some one please do me a better job. And it doesnt particularly have to be on that picture, as i stole it of google images anyway, and i think itd look better on a white dsm as well.

    Personally both look hideous.

    If you really like the idea instead of doing a full lip just do a small stripe like this(click for a larger image):

    I dont care for the blue strip, it doesnt match with the car. maybe if the car was white it would more.

    Kinda clashes with the Red tails, and doesnt look as aggressive as red.


    The black and blue, looks pretty decent though.

    Look into konig daylites. I was considering getting some for my GST for when I get it painted.

    I feel that you would need some nicer aftermarket wheels to pull the blue lip off. Wouldnt look good with the stock wheels

    I agree. I also don't think it would good on that car unless the the wheels were black.

    Agreed with both of those statement, although i think polished aluminum spoke with the blue lip would look the best. Im not a big fan of black wheels.

    I think personally if any lip is going to be painted it should only be done on a high offset wheel with a large lip, otherwise just go with a strip or don't do it at all. Car looks good as is.

    I think they would look okay if you put some blue vinyl or stripe down the side of the car other than that it would just look strange.

    Go get some blue vinyl fine-line masking tape from a body shop supplier. you can test out the colored lip with it ceaply and easily removable if you don't like.

    If you end up going with the blue, it would def. be a good idea to paint the rest of the rim black. I think the white is what makes it look bad.

    Nice! My friend bought a set of gunmetal rims with a red stripe for his 200SX. I like this style as it adds color, but nothing overkill.

    Thanks, like u said, its nothing to crazy. I didn't want like an aqua blue as it would stick out like a soar thumb. Some under hood stuff is blue and so are my calipers so i figured why not.

    I saw some Rays Gram lites that were gold with blue accents on them and they were pretty sweet looking, I am looking into getting a set.

    Personally I think it looks terrible unless the wheels are black... Or your car is white.
