Anyone have or seen black v spoke wheels?
I have a 2002 330ci and it has the sport package with the //m 18inch v-spoke wheels. I am seriously considering painting them black because new rims are out of my price range right now. Any one do this or have pictures of what it would look like? Anything helps, thanks!

go for it ive seen them black before they look good. just make sure its done right and it should look awesome

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:01 PM

Do you think a matte black powder coat would look good?

CWest22 11-02-2011 11:04 PM

what color is your car? Texas huh?

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:04 PM

Alpine white, and yeah Texas haha

CWest22 11-02-2011 11:07 PM

id do a comparison with a semi gloss matte, and a straight matte. yea im from houston but stuck in idaho.lol

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:08 PM

Good idea, didn't think of that haha. Thanks! And yeah Texas is where it's at !

CWest22 11-02-2011 11:10 PM

lol for sure, im my opinion the semi gloss matte will look better due to how the alpine white just shines!

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:11 PM

That's very true, im going to search for prices tomorrow! Thanks so much!

No problem post up some pics if you get it done. my car has black rims

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:17 PM

Painted? And has it held up well?

CWest22 11-02-2011 11:20 PM

came like this when i bought it but i paint so any curb check is painted by me and holds up. If they strip the crome and prime and paint it will come out right. if there just alloy have them scuff everything because i believe there is some kinda coat over the alloy then prime and paint

Zach330ci 11-02-2011 11:27 PM
