Looks great! Especially with the black car! I actually like your stock wheels more that mine! But I obviously like my FR500's better than all the above lol :winks

Beats the price of new rims until you can put some $$ into some you like.

You took a chance and it looks like it worked out for you. Good job!:bigthumbsup

yessir, and yea ur prob about to say its gonna crack and chip. but i did use some high quality clear coat. i sprayed this stuff in water and it actually made a thin barrier almost like plastic wrap, and it was so easy to paint the rims i didnt cover up the tire just spayed away thn wiped off the paint on the tire. so could always do a better job lata if i wanted to.

real nice man, good job! Now ust get some tri-pony spinners and it will look killer! Question, did you pre-sand the rims so the paint sticks longer?

I used dupi color on my spoiler. It actually comes damn close to matching.

PS. I bought some black dupi color paint and some clear coat. I'm Going to follow your example. It looks great and I think black rims would look nice on my car.
