Gunmetal or silver Rewinds on a yellow car?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've decided to buy 15x7 Konig Rewinds. Just wondering which color you would pick? I have the factory yellowish/green tint looking color. I can't decide on gunmetal with a polished lip or silver with a polished lip.

The car is all stock body wise.

I think the silver will make the car look classier, but the gunmetal may make it look more track/race car tough. But would the gunmetal clash with the yellow? Which do you think would look better?

Thanks for the opinions,

Jay

MMmmm.. I personally think gunmetal looks MEAN :) especially on yellow

but if you want a nice "cruise" look.. and for occasional shows... silver will look great.

gunmetal grabs more attention

I hear that. I think if it ever stops snowing enough for me to pull the z out of the garage i need to snap a side shot and photoshop them on to see the difference. I just can't picture them in my mind.

I definately love the mean look, but i like that clean look as well. Arg, decisions decisions!

Keep the advice coming, and if you know of any pics of gunmetal or silver wheels on a yellow 240 (They dont have to be rewinds but similar) send them my way.

Thanks,

Jay

Edit: Victor you beat me to it! Nice looking z.

Hmmm if it were my car I'd go Silver but the gun metal gray would look really good too. As Alfa said it's your choice you have to be happy with it.

Photoshop is a good idea but sometimes you need to see in person.

Here's a shot of my car. It's not the lime yellow, it's the more true yellow color with silver Panasports. Not exactly the same, but it should give you a pretty good idea. The gun metal Rewinds look like my Pana's with a healthy dose of brake dust. Personally, I like the silver look a lot better.

Fine looking ride there Marty! Its nice to see another early 240Z in such nice shape. I have an early 240 myself...popped out of the factory 3215 cars before yours. Is this a shoot of you drag racing your toy?

Jayru.....I think you should forget the Rewinds and go with 22" spinner type bling bling wheels! Oh, and don't forget to get the 130 db sub woofers so you can annoy everyone around you. ROFLROFLROFL Just kidding of course...Silver looks like the general consensus!!!

Silver IMO; the gunmetal wheels always look dirty to me. The silver looks clean and crisp.

Exactly! On a race Z, the gunmetal looks perfect, nice and aggressive. Street Z's, the silver looks best.

Thanks. I love the early 240Z's. I have a very early '70 also. Drag racing???!! No way!!! That is a shot of me leaving the pit lane at Road America. It's a 4 mile, 14 turn road course, where a Z belongs! I participated in the October SpeedSeekers event. You get 5 twenty minute sessions out on the track. No speed limits, passing if the guy in front of you waves you by. Most people are pretty good about that. It is huge amounts of fun! It really amazes me how well the old 240's handle, even with the stock suspension. However, I am upgrading that over the winter with PU bushings, MSA lowering springs and adjustable Illuminas. Can't wait to get it back out on the track to test out the new goodies. This winter is killing me.

Check out my gallery. I just posted pics of the silver 15" Rewinds I recently mounted on my red '71 240. I had a hard time deciding whether to get gunmetal but from all the attention i get now driving around with the silvers, id definitely say go silver.

I'd have to say don't go gunmetal. But I have seen a photoshopped image that Gav240Z has done that makes Watanbe's look wicked with just a slight hint of gun metal.

Have a look in his gallery, I think they are in there. See if you like them that colour.

I'm all for a slight difference in colour to make them look half track & half road. But it is your wallet!
