Talk me out of white wheels

A couple of weeks back I thought of doing a radio flyer wagon JK.

Pretty simple; Take my red Jeep and change out the stock tire/wheels to a 15" white soft 8 style wheel and mount 33" KM2s on. Custom Radio Flyer decals would go where the Rubicon stickers are placed...


I really want to give it a shot; but afraid I will hate it. Any internet discouragement would be appreciated.

Have you ever seen any vehicle with radio flyer on the side that looked cool?

Do whatever the hell you want and screw what other people think. (that's what "angry eyes" guy did)

Done right it could look pretty cool.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99Ę a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

That will be the stupidest, gheyest looking Jeep in the entire world

In all honesty, if you do it and hate it you'll have less than $200 bucks invested and it would be super easy to change back. I say if you wanna do it, go for it.

Yeah that is also part of the concern. It seems like if you could mix Rock Red and Flame Red it would be the perfect color. Will probably dust off photoshop tomorrowand see how bad it would look.

Either way, I still am kind of hungry for some white wheels.

I'm in the "go for it" school. It doesn't look so permanent that you can't bring it back fairly cheaply.

Rob's got it right. Starsky and Hutch was the movie, not Dodgeball.
