Default Which color should I paint my wheels?

The clear on my current rims is starting to peel. So I'm trying to decide on which color to paint them. So can someone please make two versions. One with the rims all black, and the other with the rims all gunmetal. And if anybody has any thoughts/suggestions/ideas feel free to post up. Thanks

P.S. I'm aware that my wheel gap is absolutely horrible

And some of you might know Sonny's car from over at CGP. I have really never been a fan of the black on white. But lately is has kinda grown on me.

Haha thanks for the obnoxious color choices Rebel.

White is just a little too bright for me... And bronze could possibly work as long as it was dark enough. Not sure if it would look quite right on a prix though. But from everything I've seen so far, black is for sure my favorite.

I like white rims on white cars... esp if they look like plastic wheels, kinda like s00ls sig. The shiney ones tho, maybe id go with black. Either way should be good, white or black.

keep in mind they're going to look like shit if you dont keep them clean if you go white. on top of that is the white spray paint going to be able to take so much cleaning?


i say black....i love it on my car.

I'd say that there is a 99.99% chance of me going with flat black.
