see, i like those alot. But what i was gonna try and do was to get a little cheaper pair so that i could still buy winter tires for my stock rims because the salt and snow is harsh on rims here in Iowa.

Oh man, I feel like this post is just for me. I have no problem with rattle can spray jobs as long as you accept it as that and nothing more. They'll never be perfect like a professional job, and they'll be more difficult to keep clean, but I can easily touch up or change my mind on a color over a weekend. Takes some practice to get right, but can look pretty good. Here are some photos. Each one was sprayed over with a gloss clear coat for wheels by Duplicolor.

Duplicolor Wheel-Coating - Graphite



Rustolium Metallic - Black Night Metallic



Rustolium Marking - Fluorescent Green



Rustolium Metallic - Blue Cobalt Metallic




For WRB, I'd pick gold, dark bronze, black to gunmetal color, or just something wild.. like HOT PINK.

Those look great! I like 17"x7" or 17"x7.5" rims. I still recommend the tire and size. Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec tires 225/45/17.

For winter on stock rims I'm running Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 205/55R16. It just doesn't get any better.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

find a front shot of the rims on a website and save them to the computer.then open a pic of your car in paint,copy the pics of the wheels,paste in paint then just overlay on your rims. thats the quick and "half ass way" to get an idea what they would look like. thats what i did a while back in another post about me thinking about going with orange rims.
thanks for the comments
