did you paint the rims your self? and is there a chrome around the rim? how did you do that? Also what paint did you use and how many coats and how? My car is this color ( check pic below) would it look good if I paint the rims black like on your car>?

Not sure...I only went this route while I gather funds for new wheels. As bad as my bottle caps looked, I had nothing to lose.

Funny enough I was really thinking about going gold, but black was available and easy to work with...thanks...I hope to have her running better, but only time will tell.

A new exhaust tucked under the back will top it off.

Black rims on a black car is my cup of tea.

Black on black through out. Awesome. I think gold rims on a black car look awesome too. I have two sets of those same rims and I'm looking to not spend much money on my new toy so I'll be copying you for sure. I'll do black on one set and gold on the other. How'd you get the chrome lip?

Anyways looks BA
