Has nothing to do with Monster. Just a color combination that I always like.

All primered up:





I love that color. I'm thinking of painting the inside of the rim a different color - it may end up being this primer color.

I just thought of something. Do them like the SES Fiesta wheels (15 spoke wheels) dark gray inside spokes and a slightly lighter gray on the face of the spoke.

That's a thought. I think I'm going black with the inner rim either green or the primer green color.

Gloss black and paint your front brake calipers green.

The calipers green has been an idea for a while, but at the same time, I don't really want to draw attention to my stock calipers, haha. Although, they do need a paint of some kind since you can see them so well with the 5 spokes.

Drawing attention to stock wheel is no different, IMO.

I say go pink.

SVT's are a pretty good looking stock wheel, that the average driver would not recognize as stock, most people tell me "Nice Cobras".

Last I checked, the 5 spoke SVT's never came on the mk2 Focus, so it is not a stock wheel (for this generation). Every body who has seen them on my car asked what kind they were and were a bit shocked when I said that they were older Focus wheels. Stock, no. Close to stock, yes, depending on who you are speaking with. Thanks for the suggestion for pink though.

Not bad this far. This is without any clear coat yet.

Not bad looking. I was wondering what you meant by painting the inside of the wheel green.
