    those rims have too much pink maybe tape off the spokes and paint the outer rim purple, if you can find one that closely matches the body color, or vice versa the spokes in purple and the outer rim left pink

    i`m sure that whatever wheels you put on it will look good but as long as the wife is happy that's what matters , right. I checked out your other low rider build too. it looks like its going to be just as nice as this one. i`m more into off road stuff but I may have to try something like this myself. perhaps a low rider rally car. something good on road but still able to do some light off road duty too.

    those are an interesting design and they don't look too bad. my only worry would be how strong are those tabs, but since its an on road/drifter they shouldn`t be much of an issue, and once you get the offset where you want it a little glue will take care of any strength issues anyway.

    they would look better chrome but then you could try that chrome spray paint, maybe pick up a can and experiment on some old wheels or try some of that bare metal foil that the plastic model guys use for their chrome trim, that is if you have the time and patients to do it
