Should I Tint/Paint Rims?

Here is my car both stock with no tint and then a photoshop of it with tint and painted black stock rims with a silver stripe around the edge. Let me know what you think!

tint it and paint the rims, but in my opinion you should just go all black with those stockers

If was mine I would maybe just tint the windows or just save up the money to buy some bigger 17" wheels, like maybe the svt euro wheels. I just really dont like those stock wheels at all

Cool color btw.

My opinion, just tint the windows. The wheels would look to awkward painted black, especially with stock ride height.

That color has a lot of potential for some awesome custom work

Agreed. Tint looks good and so would some all black wheels.

tint is a no-brainer. the rims...eh...idk, could go either way. i do think though, that leaving some silver on those would look better than all-black.
