Thumbs up Rims

Ok guys, I plan on getting rims but not exactly in the near future as I'm broke as a joke. Anyways, take a look at my ride and give me ideas to what color I should paint my stockers. I'm not quite sure what color to paint them so I'm up for suggestions, haters, and photo-shoppers! And if you can, tell me how much you thinka paint shop would charger me for it.

Maybe paint them all black.
Or all white, to white out that beast!

I would keep the stock and paint them either gunmetal or graphite.

I was really thinkin about doin all white but I think the brake dust would be HORRIBLE. I like the graphite gunmetal idea but I like the all black best i think. I wish I could get some stock SS rims in gunmetal, that'd be SWEET!

Have you checked into powdercoating? I know a few people that've done that

You have good rims man, just paint them. Check out my rims...painted them black, im gonna end up putting a red ring around them where the silver is to give it a little different look.

Gunmetal would look best, but white would look OK.. When wheels are off, upgrade to CERAMIC pads. Brake dust will almost be non-existant. I have a set of good used oem G5 GT oem rims, if interested.

Why not just save the money it would cost to have them painted and put it towards the new rims you plan on getting?

If your dead set on getting them painted in the meantime though, I'd go with either all black or black with a white lip.
