OK i am deciding if i should get my wheels powdered coated to match my roof racks and other stuff i all ready have painted or i just might do the brake calipers and call it good
here is a photo for reference
^photoshopped lower and painted wheels
and yes it will be lowered like this very soon im working on the coilovers

Honestly, i really like it. Do it. Maybe keep the calipers black? Looks very clean to me.

yeah if i paint the wheels im gonna do them white or silver (the calipers)

do the wheels, looks nice

Wheels for sure. CC's too, but just IMO. Looks sick.

08-15-2010, 10:48 PM
hell yea, wheels look great.

I would do the calipers black. Bring out the wheels, dont draw your attention to the caliper

i am kinda worried about them being to dark or to light or glossy what do you thing a about a candy type thing where its more on top of the silver not covering it
i dont wanna make it super orange

Car looks real clean like that. Don't do the calipers though, it adds a little too much flash, and will take away from your wheels.

i really like it as well. Definitely do it and post pics after.

08-16-2010, 11:22 AM
i'd say calipers orange and wheels black

08-16-2010, 11:50 AM
I think it'll only look good if you can make it that exact color you photoshopped, cause that looks sick and matches the roof racks perfectly .

no black wheels i HATE black wheels
and yeah i have a color that matchs perfectly but see i dont want the color to complty cover the wheel i want it more like a dark tint or a candy over the silver i think or i just should paint them all the way and call it done
