Well I have been looking around for quite some time for whitewall inserts.. i have been searching for just a fat whitewall, but i stumbled upon these and now i just don't know.

Either way i'll be getting one of the 2 styles below, so dont bother going on about how they are gay or crap or that i should get real whitewalling done.






They are the 2 choices, a fat whitewalls with all white. or a strip of black between the rim and the whitewall making it look thinner. I just don't know which way to go :hmmm:

Any input or experience would be great

Cheers

well i put the pic of my wheels in to show how they will look fully polished. its just a matter of getting time to do all of them.

not planning on getting chasers any time soon. i'd like to keep the stocko calais ones on there.

im really leaning towards the first ones now.

bit of a drama for you to consider
in brisbane a girl i know has a lowlux (hold the applause)
anyway she fitted whitewalls anyway long story short got defected
because the tyres didnt meet the load rating capacity
she went back to the tyre shop and they said they told her and tuff bickies
but is something to be aware of anyway

oh really? That sounds strange. I can't see how portawalls would affect the load rating. I have stock suspension and big fat tires. not low profile or anything.

could it possibly because she was driving a lowlux? or they said it was specifically for the whitewalls
