Ladies and gentleman,

I just found out my build "freezes" today. I'm still in doubt about wheels. The car is white the wheels are Carrera 20". I can't decide between shiny black and platinum. I don't want the flat black or the silver. First I was shiny black and then I saw pictures of a white GT4 with platinum carrera rims and I changed my build to the platinum. Any thoughts, etc. would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Curtis

I think you made the right choice: platinum wheels should perfectly suit your white GTS. At least, this is what I would do if it was my build.

Ditto. White with Platinum wheels is sweet!

Well I have a white GTS with the satin black and they look amazing because all the trim is matte black from the factory. Unless you ordered the gloss black trim pkg. The black is the perfect complement because there is no dark grey anywhere on my car. I must disagree the platinum satin wheels look dull. just my opinion. Go with what you like.

I chose black satin for my build but of the two you're considering I'd go platinum. I think the gloss black with polished edge is starting to look a bit dated.

Another vote for black satin. On white it works well and meshes with the matte black exterior trim pieces. The platinum still works for white but the pop is not as significant.

I had platinum wheels on my 14CS (platinum silver exterior). I would say platinum gives a more "classy" look and black satin a more edgy look. Guess I am getting more edgy as I age :hilarious:

I have a Boss 302 which has the shiny black rims and I like them on that car. The satin black, to me, bespeak more of a competition type rim much as one expect to find on a GT4. Anyway, the deal is done and it is : Platinum.

Thanks to all for their input.

I feel the same way about it.
