I'm thinking either white, or black. Suggestions?

i wouldnt paint them personally. and running a 70s is going to throw your speed off about 5 mph, and since its a bigger tire, when your going say 70 your speedo will say 65. if you do paint them, make sure to scuff the hell out of em with some 320 grit, then 500 grit and a wire brush. then some primer, sand more, filler priimer, sand more, base coat, and clear. any less than that and wheels wont withstand more than a few months if your lucky before they chip. good luck
