Smile Wheel Painting Opinions and Help

okay, so I need those wonderful photoshop ppl to do me a huge favor by more easily showing me how these 3 options would look on my car. All will be done by complete powder coating. Also the Lugnuts will be the Red Acorn ones.

1st - Whole rim Mirror Black
2nd - Mirror Black Center w/ Silver lip
3rd - Mirror Black Center w/ Red Lip

And here are photo's for you guys to work with. I would greatly appreciate it and Thank you very much in advance. Just need to see what it would look like before I start powdercoating and find out I don't like the look of them.

Tried to take few pix for you guys to work with.

No lip at all.

This is just my thoughts so take it for what its worth. I wouldnt spend the money on having those wheels powdercoated. After all there not anything super fancy. Just paint them yourself with wheel paint. If you do the correct prep, the paint will hold up very well. Plus if they do get curb rash, you can touch it up yourself very easily.

Now on color, black will make those wheels look even smaller then they already do. A brighter color will make the appear bigger, as it will draw out to the eye. I think that gold, bronze, or red would look super hot.

Lastly Im going to move this thread into the Photo & Camera Fanatics Thread, as that where PS request belong.

yeah, opinions are great whether they aren't wat I was looking for. So thanks very much, I just didn't know how bronze rims would look on it, so never really pulled that idea into thread. So maybe someone can try a bronze on the pic of my car and we can see how it looks.

Thanks again for the thoughts.

yeah, i'll have to find a pic of a white one with bronze or gold rims. Really its just having some fun while i wait for that tax check to come in to get the Euro-Edition 17's. So this will also help me decide on which color to order on those so then i don't get them here and not like them and have them powdercoated to some other color.

Not really I just know they were. I also know those who own them covet them. IF you get eaps that arent gold you can easily paint or powder coat them. People do it all the time. I wish you luck with the choice it is a very tough one. I'm thinking about painting my second set of stock wheels I have but cant decide. I have so many ideas I want to try!
