So I Finally Got Some New Rims

Yesterday I planned on going to school then heading over to the tire shop to put on these new rims. On my way to school my spare popped on me and I had to tow it and miss school. Luckly my teachers are nice and will let me make up whatever I missed.

Anyways, I only got these for 200$ + tax. They are discontinued but that doesnt matter much to me, im pretty broke because of less work and more school.

One person told me my cracked rim is unfixable though another guy at the tire shop is taking it to a friend of his to see if he can weld it back together!


Not bad for only 200$, though im really gonna need to get used to not having black rims, it jsut looks weird since I was going for an all black look.


Now what id like to know, how would spray painting them look? Would it be better to just leave them as it is? Im not sure how the finished look would be. messy? clean? depends?

thanks

just a thought..if you have a lowes or home depot there try a paint called platic dip..its really easy to paint with and really easy to removed.i use it for my wheels during the winter to protect them from salt..then in the spring you just peel it off..its kinda like a rubber but its paint..made to come off.

Plus its really hard to get a good paint to stick when your dealing with chrome..plati coat is the way to go bro...lol
