Wheel mod

Saw these the other day and they look fantastic. I was wondering of we could get a similar effect on the sport wheels or st wheels.


Anyone good with photo shop?

Those are 22's I believe off the Edge Sports. Wrong bolt pattern and probably way too big but do look damn sexy.

They didn't ask to put those wheels on the car, but they wanted to paint the sport wheels or the ST wheels in a similar manner, but yeah those wheels won't bolt on these cars.

I guess you could do something like this with the sport wheels. Not sure how you would get the glossy effect though as most people who paint their wheels use that Plasti-Dip stuff which is matte. A wheel shop could possibly help you

Its either paint and clear coat or plasti dip+ their glossifier to act as a clear coat for some shine.

I say give this a try OP! If you don't like it you can just peel it off. Shouldn't cost too much either
