black wheels on a white car always looks sick. I did the diy mod. Wasnt too bad. I kinda did my own stuff instead. i had a few chips so i bondo'd them, primed, painted, then clear coated. I only did that much work because i was painting my car at the time also. Heres a pic of my wheels before and after.





i'm pleased with the turnout. I've driven in all types of weather and they are still in perfect shape.

These are my stock wheels so I am a bit worried about the smaller spacings between spokes

It will just take longer time to sand...
what I will worry is the center cap...
