The thing I don't like about the painted pocket wheels is the shape of the spokes where they meet in the center. They look like separate pieces stuck together. I thought the way the spokes on the others just flow into the center looks better, but would make the two-tone treatment pretty tricky. Looks like it wasn't the problem I thought it would be, because you ran the silver stripes all the way to the center cap, rather then trying to copy the U-shape on the painted-pocket wheels like I was imagining. (Duh. Why didn't I think of that?)

What do you think of painting the fog light bezels to match the wheels?

@arco-zakus
That's such a good idea! I was thinking on getting the black fog lights bezels but SG paint to match could look better!

@1slofofo
