gunmetal is veryverydark grey.

the real question is what do YOU want to get? if you ask us what you SHOULD get, then we'll be the ones modifying your car...not you.

so the real question is what do YOU like?

no chrome!!! Chrome's more for luxury cars... you got a 'rolla, racing rims will give it a nice sporty look. by the way, what color is your corolla?

You don't want black cause then all the fucking ricers will be like OH THAT'S SO JDM!!! You don't want silver really cause it's not that original. I'd go with gunmetal. So smoooth.:boink:

It's really your preference in color. Picking a certain color doesn't mean ricers will be on your nuts either. Pick what you like, but chrome is heavier. I'd go with a lighter wheel for the obvious reason of the car being a Corolla. Black on black does look nice though...as long as the hubcaps aren't ripped off to give the appearance of black rims. :lol:

I find this funny that silver is unoriginal but you suggest gunmetal?? EVERYONE on here suggests gun metal. Just like any stock car on here 80% of people will post: "needs rims, tint, drop." LOL like if it doesn't have one of these things then it isn't being proerly modded:rolleyes: :lol:

Here's some pics to give you an idea of what the rms might look like:
Bronze:


18" "racing" (probably cast though so fairly heavy)


silver racing style with lip:


Chrome:

I don't have rims tint or drop... so my car isn't properly modded.:( :lol:

Now BRONZE is original and looks very good. Especially with black.

Personally, I like the look of gunmetal or graphite (on dark colors), especially with a polished lip. Like these Konig Holes:

Well you could do a whacky thing, take a set of racing wheels, and take off the paint, polish them and then get them sprayed with clearcoat. Now you have a set of mirrorshiny racing wheels. :D
