Re: Painted rims white with blue anodized valve stems

hmm I've seen many different cars and color combos and bronze works best with blue imo but maybe black. Any sample pics with the the dr31s or rota torque replicas?

Re: Painted rims white with blue anodized valve stems

Looks good I want to see them on the car...White really is a b**** to keep clean. I didn't realize it until I did mine haha. Just get good brake pads to keep the dust down...

Re: Painted rims white with blue anodized valve stems

They aren't rota replicas... dr31's and rota torques are both replicas of Work Emotion CR Kai's.

Here are my dr31's. 17x8 bronze wrapped in 225/45/17 P6000's



I know they arent on a black prelude or 4th gen, but its what they look like in real life as opposed to the manufactures website. Hope it helps a little in the decision process.

Re: Painted rims white with blue anodized valve stems

thanks bro and I just replaced my front brakes not too long ago...got new oem discs and got EBC greenstuff which supposedly create low brake dust. But yea the two fronts are mounted and I'm getting compliments where ever I go but also questions on why only the front twos...but yea I'll post pics once I get it somewhat clean...maybe a quick trip to brown bear and get it pressure washed cause of the crappy weather...all the crap from the road is sticking a bit.
