nah i like the chrome, but if i put a black vinyl on there u wouldnt be able to see it, i was thinking red pontiac symbol, make them look like they are supposed to be on there

You can get a carbon fiber or chrome or any combination vinyl. I think it would look sick.

i might just put one on and see how it looks and if i dont like it ill peel it off and clean the wheel up

i do my own vinyl work so it will cost me practically nothing to do this and i have alot of colors including chrome, but i think red would look good since it will be able to be seen

black would flow with the car though

Good choice with red to compliment the calipers. Grafxwerks can do a red on black background too if you wanted another choice.

i think it would look cool, but i'd change the chrome to black. then the pontiac symbol over that.

That wheel makes your rotors look small.
I agree w/ sik, red compliments the caliper.

good point sik, it would accent the caliper nice.

OT: Holy wheel gap, lower that thing!

Since you can cut your own vinyl, just try a couple different combinations, just do it on 1 wheel at a time though, if you don't like it, peal it off and try something different.

Make five of them into a red star pattern pointing at each spoke.

by make your own do you mean with a plotter or do you mean you just cut them out by hand?

I think a black center with red pontiac logo would look sweet.

Vinyl cutter. Just a cutter, its not a printer/cutter combo.
