if you have it done professionally it will look good. if you're just gonna run to home depot and start sparying them without even taking the tires off then its gonna look ugly. black rims on red cars dont look bad at all IMO.

i think black rims on a red car look pimp. this summer, im gonna get some black rims with a silver lip. i just dont think the design i have now would look good if i painted it.

your welcome, btw, if you want to save money, you can buy crappy rims for 500 like primax or something, and paint it black or something

Have seen a few factory rims painted gunmetal and black. They all looked good from a distance. However, up close, only one set looked good. Don't know how it was done but it looked original not spray can.

if you plan on painting use dupli-colors new high performance rim paint. i just saw it last week and a few people on SH sent my pics of them trying it and it looks quite well. still deciding if im goin to do it :confused

I keep hearing about painting rims. I cant imagine it would hold up very well would it? Rocks, gravel and such wont knock it off? Up here in PA it would be gone in a second from the road salt. Why not spend a few bucks and have them powdercoated or anodized?

Mine held up fine and I drove it through the whole winter. My rims were also exposed to a shit load of salt. :cry

As long as you take your time painting them and don't take any shortcuts you'll be fine. :tu

I'll find a better picture when I get home.
