I want to paint my alloy rims and I was wanting to know what everyone thought about my color choice. My car is a fully loaded 2007 Black SES with black and grey leather interior. I was thinking doing the rims in white. Tell me what you think.

gunmetal grey. Everyone else is gonna say black but I hate black rims. I think white would look like a penguin. I personally like a bronze or gold with a black as well. Check home page for ride of the month pics, black car with gold rims

Even with my interior being grey and black. I would think grey would make it look almost drab looking.

White, no way IMO.
I would go with Bronze or Grey.

what do you guys think about white?

penguin ^^^. I say way too much contrast. Bronze or grey for a clean subtle look
back in black

absolutely not white. It would stay white for about 5 minutes on the road.

Bronze would look tough. I just don't like those silver rims.

Leave white for the white rides lol.
I remember a guy who got bronze wheels on his black SES. Looks pretty cool and factory looking.

If you enjoy cleaning your wheels.Go ahead do white.Brake dust will show up quick and stain easily.

I'm a fan of Smoke, maybe the gunmetal grey.

how are you painting them? duplicolor makes a wheel paint. go with graphite/gunmetal

Personally, I would call around to a few places that anodize aluminum and have it done that way. Painting wheels never works out right, its too easily chipped off. Powder coating works also, and its pretty tough. But anodizing is the longest lasting.

Powder Coating is rediculously expensive. I don't know about anodizing.

I am going to be using the duplicolor paint. I think I am going to go with Bronze. The grey, gunmental, graphite or black will make them kind of blend in versus stand out some.

bronze would look sexy on black.
i have white rims... and yes, its a FEMALE DOG cleaning them! they were already painted white before i got them.... love the way it looks tho [^]
