Should I Replace the Stripes?

i got white rims with silver stripes.. i want to remove the silver stripes and go with white ones.. but my question is should i just do racing stripes like i already have or the small fender stripes.. OR maybe some stripes similar to Brian had on the silver skyline in F&F
also.. i wanna get a big decal of the tattoo on my back but cant decide where to put it.. one on each side of the car OR back glass
Current Look with white rims and silver stripes

Brian's car

tattoo

well fast and furious is lame x 7 so don't copy anything they do, second I like the stripes, but they could be a little more pointed on the hood...maybe like an ACR Viper <3

I say, the less amount of decals, the better.

after install I think I paid ~$110 for mine. If I were to do it again, I'd go with a little thicker (but only by maybe an inch), but I love how they really change the look of the car. I get a lot of compliments on my stripes, it went from teenage girl yellow to a sporty yellow. lol

I do get teased over my steelies though...but all in time, all in time.

Keep stock stripes on hood, top and deck.... NO fender or side stripes. Leave same color you have, not worth changing.

I'd say they look best as is, and spend the money elsewhere. there's much better things you could use that money for.
