Wheel help--paint scheme

oh and aslo here is my car as it sits now-- what should I do with the wheels --paint or upgrade to rotas (I do have twins on the way )



leave them -the way they are or paint
if painting them-- is there a how to and what color would look good

The tires from the 15x6.5's will fit on the 15x7.5 wheels. Might set the car lower buy a very small amount, same tire stretching to a wider wheel. In Maine for state inspection we have to be careful about tire size, the car can be flunked for not matching the size listed on the door jam. For your second question, I'd say paint. There nice looking wheels and you'll need the money! Believe me, I have 4 kids.

There might be a how to but i love black wheels with a polished lip on black fofo's. Just tape the lip on the wheels all up nice and neat. take your time. sand them down, primer them, paint them, then clear coat them. My buddy just did this and used dupli color (i think thats what its called) from auto zone. they came out really really nice. i was very surprised

Seeing as how you have twins on the way the choice should be simple. Just paint your current wheels seeing as how they aren't in bad shape. Unless there is something that I can't see. And I like the idea that pitchedblack04 gave with the black wheels and polished lip. I have that with my DP12s, polished lip and all black wheel Soon to have pictures up of my completed ride for this year and you will see what I mean by the black and polished lip
