Once you go black....

OK, is this really even a contest?

Go black young man! I have a silver 2003 FSVT with the black EAP wheels. I took off the Dark Argent (aka Grey) wheels and the car now looks meaty and agressive.

Whatever color you decide to go with, go with powder coating and a satin finish (v. flat or glossy).

If you want a snapshot of my vehicle to see what black wheels on silver body looks like, I'd be happy to send you one. Email me at [email protected]

Trust me, you will not be disappointed with Black wheels.

Yes, in retrospect, I guess bronze would be OK. Especially, if one accessorized with a matching red, white, and blue cape and a gold headband!

And Jetrinka, I'm willing to bet you $5 that my UPS truck can beat up your UPS truck! ;-)

faster_than_u, OK I guess I could also agree that white would look good as well. I am also very proud to say that I am one of 'your 8%.' Rap music should only be permitted when injected into metalcore; otherwise, it's just trash.

jbodin - what software did you use to do that?
Most folks would use Photoshop -- I use Paint Shop Pro, which is very similar to Photoshop.

A very nice, full-featured and best of all FREE alternative is a neat little program called Gimp:

Very nice program, compares well to things like Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop, slick and easy to use, hard to believe it's free.

I used Photobucket to post the pictures -- I used Paint Shop Pro to EDIT the images and do the color manipulation and such.

Glad to help!

On the subject of wheels, trboescortgeorge requested that I do some image manipulation for him to show him what his blue SVT would look like with black wheels, so I hope you don't mind a little thread-jacking (though this is still on-topic since we're talking wheel colors and such, I suppose):

I kind of like this look with a red lip -- probably tougher (or pricier) to achieve, though:
