Painting My Rims

im having my friend paint my msr 045's
he does the right procedure. sanding them primer them and painting them with proper wheel paint

but im not sure if i should do black with red stripe or black with chrome stripe

heres my car


im lowering in the spring with sportlines so dont worry about the gap i have now because it will be gone

but what do you think i should do.

mmm I would spend the money and powdercoat them. As far as color goes maybe a black lip and silver core? You should go look at different colors and see what looks good.

powder coating would be soo much and i know thats the way to do it but it would probaly cost more than the actual rims cost.

I decided to be different from all the other 045 owners and just paint them fully black. And than have my calipers red. Will look alot better because all the other black 045s have red or chrome stripe so im going to just do mine black
