Anyone seen any good ideas on how to make a steelie rim look nice? Not talking just about re-painting them. Any creative ideas?



I prefer not to take the trip to walmart and buy wheel covers :P

Dude you just cannot compare anything to spinner hub caps... Just make the trip to Autozone now and save us all the time of this thread.

dip them in chrome!!! lol

some chrome dipped steelies would be the shit.

seriously bag and drag the body rails with some steelies.

I am personally not a big fan of the steelies, but the lower you go the better they look, imho.

I keep thinking about 17x7 or 16x7 steelies with satin black centers and satin red barrels. Would be great winter wheels with some skinny snow tires.

i'd love to get a set of the fat 5-spoke a8 spare wheels (all black w/ hazard stickers). i'd even leave the stickers on (but change to a better tire of course).

what color is your car? black with a time attack lip would look cool on some cars.

make your own spinners out of tin-foil and christmas ornaments.

Man.... A4's just can NOT pull off that look (at least from the pics I've seen). The body is too rounded.
