If I pick up this Suzuka I've been looking at I'm going to get the Ap2 rims Powder coated or I may just buy a set of works or something.

Anyway what color combos look the best with suzuka? I've seen some gold/bronze, black, and white.

If I ever get aftermarket wheels I'd probably want something in white, like on the ASM S2.

To be honest I hate white wheels, they show dirt far too much. Matte black sounds sexy. I've always liked flat purple as weird as that sounds- and would look

I've been thinking the samething here.. I've looked at countless sets of wheels and have no idea what I want. However I do think black look best on Suzuka Blue..

matter of taste but.. black look more aggressive than clean. To me stock ap2 wheels with nice drop look just perfect. Otherwise rpf1 in silver.

AP2 wheels look wierd to me on Suzuka Blue. I don't know why I feel that way but since I got my S2k I haven't wanted them like I did before I picked up the car.

Ya most of the aftermarket wheels i've seen on suzukas have been bronze. I wonder how DARK ruby would look or PENNY... Suzuka is so F-ing hard to match.

I love my gunmetal AP2V1 wheels, especially that tinge of blue they have in the sunlight. More pics here, before I painted the center caps.

I have always enjoyed the way the gold wheels on WRXs and STIs looked, and my cousin had gold wheels on his Suzuka. To me, it had that rally-esque quality about it. I get that vibe from bronze wheels too. White wheels look plastic to me, and black wheels haven't ever been flashy enough. Silver is a safe choice, and gunmetal is harder to pull off on a car like that because it tends to look like a dirty silver wheel. This is of course just my opinion.

I'm big on black wheels... IMO, gloss black w/ polished lip for black cars... matte black on anything else. You just can't go wrong!
Having said that, I've seen some Suzukas sporting white, bronze and gunmetal.. and they all looked good

Here's mine on a set of gold LMs. Can't go wrong w/ a set of ap2v2 w/ a nice drop and some spacers to widen the stance a little.

Close, but not "quite" suzuka blue. It's a very finicky colour to capture.

I think it looks pretty good tho. :tipwink:

Nice choices, How about penny or ruby, like i mentioned earlier. I'm having a hard time picturing the ruby on suzuka but I feel like it would be BADDDDDD ASSSS

I was wondering the same thing! i have a new to me 2002 blue s2000 and was thinking about getting some black rims that are used! I have always had bright color rims and was thinking how does black rims look on this color blue? I would like to see some pictures of blue 2000s with black rims.
