Hi guys, I want to pimp my car up with a fancy bodyshell and some chrome rims.. not for racing, but just so it can look cool on display in my lounge. I've found some pretty sick bodyshell artists but cant find any chrome/alloy rims.

Any ideas?


Thanks in advance ;)

lol, you can MAKE some display rims but not to drive - you'd have to dye some shiney rims (like the kit B4 ones), dye them black. Then airbrush (or spray can) chrome paint, like that from alclad. Would be able to get a chromey finish but it would wear off and look utterly pants if you tried to drive it.

Can you know longer get alloys rims? I used to race about 15 years ago and they were quite popular to actually race with back then.. I had some pepperpot alloys on my pro cat lol..

Surely somewhere sells them? I want chromes :(

Its for my B4 though so would need thinner ones on the front.. plus those do look a little tacky haha! Surely someone, somewhere sells high quality alloys rims..
