ITT: Car mods/shit it general you hate.
I fucking hate black wheels with silver lips. They are just fuckin ugly and always cheap looking, even if they're name brand.
Holy shit so much this
Especially when it has those little silver nuts around the edge like in that picture. Looks so cheesy. Also I hate smoked tails/headlights on anything not black, looks horrible
Fuck, so much of what the OP said. I hate those lips. Every single ricer has them, I don't get it, is it cheaper to make a wheel if you dont paint the lip?
Hated mod? Plasti dip, sure you can take it off and a lot of people say "it's easy to take off!" no. After a summer or two, depending on where you live, it's gonna be REALLY hard to take off. Where a pressure washer won't help you either, and getting every little piece out of the corners is satan's curse for plasti dipping. I had to debadge a whole car to get rid of the plasti dip off the badges.
Holy fuck every time I find an EG Civic on craigslist it looks like this; what would make you thing that cutting your springs and leaving everything else stock would look good?
damn I have black wheels with a polished lip and those 'little silver nuts around the edge'
I will admit those wheels in OP's pic do look trashy, but I think its down to the car you put them on, with the right wheels on the right car the black/silver can look pretty decent.
Type R, Evolution, GT-R, STi, etc. on base models. Bonus autism points for shit not lining up well.
Debadging on the other hand is fine. Lose the "XR6 Turbo" and your Falcon no longer exists to police.
Polished aluminum lip here
Does it look like shit? Be honest
I think it looks fine.
my favorite rims have always been black CCW Classics with a black lip instead of silver, now that an anon has pointed out the 'little silver nuts around the edge' they are always going to bother me.
A proper piece of metal, chromed or polished on the lip, with flat black paint, it actually impressive. The problem is you can chrome plastic now, and a black finish is cheap. So what once was an impressive feat of industry, is now the standard style of plastic cell phones.. It's.... complicated, nuanced... something most people are not.
>on anything not black, looks horrible
except for when it doesn't
your car looks straight up retarded
and you painted your grill black how original(!?)
I'm so fucking tired of seeing people paint or plastidip their shitbox wheels (actually usually just the hubcaps) black. It looks so fucking tacky and doesn't look "sporty" at all.
I swear every Mexican in my area who drives a 90s Silverado/Tahoe/Suburban has installed these tacky fucking lights (usually older than pic). Altezza-style lights are horrible in general, but IMO these are some of the worst. Nothing about those GM trucks is aesthetically suited to circular lights.
