i'd do it... but have it powdercaoted... it'll be well worth the investment...

its one thing to paint your rims one color yourself... but trying to tape.. paint... change colors... retape... paint more....

better off just letting a professional do it so that they'll look sexy forevers.

I would make the red lip thinner. There is someone on here that has a set of 5 spoke SVTs done like that and they look hot.

damn you are a SUPER copy cat ;) LOL!!! It's cool blue you already know I like it :) But word to the wise if you go all the way into the lip a bit there be prepared to clean the rims almost daily...so get them powdercoated...or at least the black PC then do a vinyl lip like I did.

^^^you know how much I clean the car anyways....

I would prolly try to get the black rims and to a lip red.....I will most likely stick with the bronze, but it's worth posting cause it looks NASTY...


yeah, I just took the lip into where the painted line is on the rim...I like it deeper like that.
