Here is my Elegy "Super Taxi"...

After painting my car that truck was the first "personal vehicle" that I came across.  Thought it was pretty odd! 

 

 

 

 

And here is the Elegy with some wear and tear.

Not enough chrome rims in this game tbh.

 

You're stuck with GT Chrome or Split Ten.

I completely agree with you OP.

 

I cringe everytime I see it. Bright green rims on a chrome Buggati or a black Range Rover with red rims + custom tires.

 

Most peoples taste in cars and clothes is horrendous and GTA proves that. Maybe I shouldn't say horrendous, unique is a little more fitting. Still though...

 

Actually there is a use for them. I created a baja style vehicle and very often they use tacky colors on these vehicles to make them visible / stand out. So I made mine bright red with bright green rims. It's tacky but that's the point of that particular vehicle. :)

I can't believe people are actually bothered by te fact that someone has different tastes than them! Good heavens the worlds coming to an end!

Seriously if you don't like it don't insult people that do. Everyone has their own personal tastes. Make a poll.

I don't know if it counts as "colored" wheels, but I love the red stripe tires on my Bati. It looks like a "normal" bike tire, but with a red stripe going around the inside of the wheel. I don't know if you can change the stripe's color, but it looks sexy anyway.

The truck isn't mine.  The Elegy is.

 

 

I wanted my car to be as tacky as a Los Santos Taxi.

completely agree that any rim color other than a metal finish, black, or white (in some circumstances) look tacky as f*ck.

 

Although, in cases where you can paint an area of the rim rather than the entire thing, it can look decent if done right.

Not knowing how to spell while trying to talk trash about others is tacky.

With some vehicles/paint jobs, coloured rims are the way to go.

They look tacky as hell!  Why do people do this? I will go as far as white cos they look pretty nice with some low riders and black cos they go well with most cars but orange, green, blue etc... seriously uncool!

That is what the new thing in real life, the kids rolling the streets it their ratte-can beaters with the brightest color of Plastidip they can find.

Seriously though, go look at a few car magazines. This look has been around a long time.

 

I know this, just dropping my opinion on the matter lol

 

I dont understand how this is a topic let alone 6 pages in. 1st of all who are you to decide what is tacky and what isnt, in real life or a video game, that right, you are nobody. 2nd WAKE UP, its a video game, NOT real life.  Have fun with it. Enjoy the pretty colors. Stop being so boring. Look at me with my black car with black rims, i look so bad ass sitting here in this virtual world lolololol

Lol stfu dude

 

Nice response, very well thought out and intelligent. My point is people take video games way to seriously these days and beyond that what looks good to one person may not be the same for everyone bc we are all different so why bash it? im sure some things you do ppl think are lame. Im tired of seeing a chrome adder in every mission i join , it doesnt look good to me personally but to each his own, im sure some ppl love the chrome adder. It would be really boring if every1 had the same plain ass car. IRL id never have colored rims or most of the other stupid looking mods in this game, but thats just it, its a game, have fun, do things you wouldnt do irl, its entertainment, an escape from real life.

 

Sorry but video games are to be taken seriously if you are a competative gamer! When tournaments pay out 1m prizes do you think they say "dude don't take this seriously, it's just a game" no, no they wont

 

obviously you only read the 1st line. Regardless, this isn't a competitive game. Its GTA and you are bashing ppl bc they don't use only black rims. You think colored rims are tacky, I think you are boring as hell.  Besides the majority of players out there are not competitive gamers winning millions in tourneys, its a very small percentage.  IF you are a "competitive gamer" aiming to make money off of gaming then I don't know why you would be playing with regular scrubs anyway, that wont help you get any better. I never understood the concept of MLG tho tbh, who the hell wants to watch some1 else play a video game. ITs not like professional sports, any1 can do it. Even fat nerds who sit on the couch all day. See, even you have hope.

I agree with the OP. It is hilarious seeing all the tacky cars of Los Santos roaming about, especially when it's one of my friends. 

Colored rims only work with certain cars and color schemes. That is all it's about. Some of my own examples of proper rims below.

Personally I wished R* would've added a lot more chrome rims or at least the option to color them chrome like we can the body.  Regardless,  colored rims aren't crappy. Your self centered outlook on this is whats crappy.  You and the other guy who agrees with you.  Black and white only?  What are you guys 50 or something?  lol  You have your taste and other ppl have theirs.  Accept it and respect it and quit trying to pass your opinion off as fact or the standard.  I do admit that sometimes I run across some horrible color combinations but that's due to the owner not the rims being colored.  When the colors are coordinated properly tho the cars look nice.  You just have no sense of today's car modding.

that doesnt make sense colored rims were huge in the late 70's 80's and 90's.

 

i can recall a certain XW falcon GT from wollongong that is silver with red rims, its a early 90's car. looks awesome. still around today with the red simmons B45's.

Why do people care so much about whether or not their cars look good to others? Of course it's fun to show them off and get some looks but in the end you are the one that owns it, and is stuck looking at it all the time. You should just pick what colors you like and roll with it, regardless of the haters. What might be classy to you may not be classy to someone else, etc. can't please em all!
