Default Gold Rims?


I need new tires for my 2003 Blazer, but I want to get new rims too. My stock rims are pitted. I wanted black rims, but I can't find the exact size. I had no idea it was so hard to find the right rims! My current specs are 16x8 rim, 5x120.65mm bolt pattern, 6.4mm offset. The closest non-factory wheel I could find to those specs differed only becuz the offset is 0mm. Is that "significant"? 6.4 lousy mm? I talked to a guy at the Goodyear store and he told me he doesn't mess with rims anymore becuz everything but original equipment is crap and made overseas. Sooo, I started looking for remanufactured rims and found some. One set is gold-colored! I don't think I've seen such a thing. A "factory" gold rim? Should I trust this? Would it last, and stay gold (it's more gold-ish than gold, I think). I think it might look good on my black Extreme.

I had considered those for my blazer, as it is dark green metallic. Gold pairs well with dark colors, especially green.
Please post pics if you go that route!!

I have seen very few gold rims on S-Series trucks...but they do exist! More so on the 95-97 Jimmys and Bravadas, but I have seen 02 ZR2s with goldies.

Hope they turn out really nice for you.

GreenBlazer, you should get the gold too.
