Time to Refinish Wheels - need color advice
 
4 Attachment(s)
So when this semester is over, summer will be on me, and I want to refinish the m68s I recently picked up. These are going to be on the car probably forever, they are light and I love the design. Anyway, they came to me with some damage but its not much, however i want to refinish and paint them this summer....


So i am down to 3 basic choices : hyper silver, gun metal, matte black. here is the PS on my car. Feel free to submit other color choice but please provide a PS with your color choice. a crazy color is not out of the questions just want to see what it looks like.

no way. I really like them and they were cheap with good tires. the only thing i would trade to would be kosies, or dforce LTW.

but that hyper black, i am not sure where to find paint like that.

btw does anyone know where to get different colors high temp paint other than autozone?

Hey some people like stock? nothing wrong with that. Personally i think hyper Black. Matte black i think are for cars going in the aggresive direction. Especially on a beautiful color like alpine white

the car is moderatly tucked. and the color is definitly TiAg. not white :shhh:

and it gets autoxed a lot and most of the mods are performance oriented not style....

but thanks for the vote. :thumbsup:

you guys dont think that the contrast provided by darker wheels sets the car off? plus brake dust is a PITA to deal with....

nowerelsetoroam 04-03-2010 04:41 PM

oo forgot bout dust
gunmetal also looks good
