i have a few pics in my gallery... do you think white walls in 245/35/19s would look good on my EF/EL Fairmont..? They seem to give the impression that the rims are bigger.. :wink: seem to also be all the rage atm and do look "pimp".. 8-)

IMHO they look good on classics, especially old muscle like mustangs etc, but on new cars i think it'd look pretty s**t. but like phong said, photoshop it and see how it goes.

might also be a bit overkill on your white car

definetly not on newer cars.

Whitwalls looks tops on the older cars, but the look s**t on the newer ones IMO.

Would look very tacky.

I hope you people arent all thinking of the old thick stripe white walls?

coz there are also white walls with a thin stripe thats about 10mm thick and doesnt look too bad (my opinion though)

but i heard they are worth quite a bit per tyre from a couple of people

i actually thought about this once but dropped the idea once i found a cheap new set of Dunlop SP3000A

i agree with johnny, if its the thin white strip, it could look good, spose it has to be thin on a 19" tyre but as long as its not the whole sidewall it could look good.
