Retro boss wheels

Sesshomurai

Here's a quicky PS I did to show my upcoming 2013 LS with white racing rims (like the original).

What do you think?

Can you display more of a profile shot?

Here's a side shot, but because I couldn't edit the wheels much, it looks more fake.

Nice but I don't think those look anything like the originals. The Boss wheels are much closer, find a set and paint them white.

I like the idea of painted wheels for track cars. I think the white with yellow looks not bad at all. Definitely not a "cruisin'" street-car look - more for track, but I intend to have different wheel sets for track and street, etc.

Too Hot for the Boss!
Why not just contact Panasport (original wheel manufacturer) and ask them to make a run of them?

I think they only build up to 16" wheels right now, but if you could get them to do a run of 18" wheels, that would work great on the track. I'd go with a flat black or argent color which hides the brake dust :)
 
Why not try those wheels in a natural aluminum color, or a color to match the stripe? Are the street BOSS wheels changing also?

Can they paint them the same reflective color as the 13 stripes? Not sure that it would look good, but it would be interesting to see.

I had white wheels on my all white 1991 SHO and that's the one and only time I'll have white wheels on a car. ;)

The SHO!!!!!! I loved that car! I had three of them. A '90, '91, and '93. The '90 was all done up. 3.2 swap, brakes, suspension, exhaust, tune. That car is the father of the modern sports sedan.... It was brilliant!

The 1985 BMW M5 is the Father of all sports sedans but the SHO cars were pretty cool too! White wheels are retro 80's a set of Panasports would be awesome retro '69-'70.

Mine was similar to this one and had white mirrors and the power bulge hood. That Yamaha motor was fun.

I'll have to disagree - IMO I like 5 DOT 0's current wheels much more than the white. Too much accent color make it look too much like a cute show car, not the track beast that it is ! Also, if you track a car and have white painted wheels then you likely have a complex that forces you to make life extremely hard on yourself ! ;D

5 DOT 0 still has the best looking wheels I've seen on a Boss.
