If you're talking green wheels, it's been done. I kinda like it.

Let me guess, you found some guy selling 04 BBS and didn't bother to ask if they'd been painted?

They were blue metallic last week. I guess I could explain. One of my buddies have been talking about painting his wheels green for like the past 6 months but never had the balls to pull it off. So, to spite him, another friend painted his wheels purple. Yet another friend joined in and painted his hot pink. Strangely enough the hot pink on his car looked great.

I said, hell with it, I repaint my rims (touch up) every year anyway. So I painted mine blue metallic. Well, they turned out better than I thought they would. Two more friends join our painting frenzy which include highlighter yellow and bright orange. I decided mine was too subtle, and went super neon green. Now we're just way to amused with ourselves and our bravery is causing more people to join. It's an epidemic.

None of these are photoshopped including the 1st one I posted. All this emerged over a period of about 6 weeks. There are more, but that's all I could find on FB.









Oh, and my buddy finally grew a pair and went thru with it .

To be perfectly honest, I was going for something completely obnoxious. Seeing the expressions of laughter, disgust, amazement, and even hate are just so gratifying.

Be careful, it's all fun and games until you are installing underglow and spinners and you realize that at some point you became a full blown ricer.

I suppose that would depend on one's definition of a ricer. Would it not?
