Well i went out and compared them tonight. The difference is very great. I think the new shade would look good on a white or gold car, but my green car really needs more color in the wheels, like the originals. I don't know what to do now.

Goodbye corroded wheels! WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!.

Anybody got pristine centercaps?
Good buy on the Getto Golds. I have a set of 4 center caps that I got of a 93SSE with the getto golds from a local wrecker last month. They are not in pristine condition but if you are interested let me know.

The blemishes you see are just fingerprints cause they're pretty dusty.

Wow those look really nice. I would probably keep my rims if they looked like that.
