New shoes for Red Rover

I'm sure some of you guys won't like this but I think it turned out great!!!!!! It's pretty hard to find 18" or 20" wheels that look good and don't cost an arm and a leg so I started looking at other options.

I looked on Craigslist and found a set of curbed up wheels that were already powder coated white with white center caps. I bought them for $300 with rubber. I just sold the rubber for $300 so I pretty much got the rims for free! I ended up getting the wheels re-powdercoated white and that hid all the curb rash. I had a set of Nitto Terrafirm tires from a previous truck I had so I put those on the RR wheels. Then I bought Bulldog hub adapters so I could install Range Rover wheels on the D90 and here she is.....

She drives straight and the stance sticks out perfect!! I'm super happy with the look, it's almost like a toy car lol

I generally try to steer clear of discussions like this as it's kinda poor form and to each his own. Maybe it's the shitty day I had but that just doesn't look good. Sorry.

However that really is a smokin' deal. Those are RRS rims, right?

I actually think you need to paint the grill and headlight surrounds white to complete the look

I was out running. Only just saw this. Each to their own. A lot of people round here like the traditional looks. If the look makes the owner happy then I'm happy for him. Looks like he did a quality job ... Just hope he kept the original rims for when he comes to sell it ...

Glad you like it, but I thought rovers were supposed to wear boots not heels.

Forget the wheels. Can we discuss your hood letters and their spacing.

I was thinking that too. White grille and you might be able to pull those wheels off. It's just horrendously unbalanced as it is now.

Unless you go with black wheels. But I think you're committed now

I actually like the idea of 18s (20s not so much), and may one day get a set of Mondials in black. The white is just so white!
