Opinions on Black Stock Rims

I photoshoped my stock rims black and I am debating doing it. Looking for opinions on the look. I also photoshopped my calipers red which I will for sure be doing, just seeing opinions on the black rims.

Photoshopped


Non-Photoshopped

Nice photo shop skills.

Just buy a set of nice wheels instead. It will look better. Stock wheels look trashy.

New rims are out of the question right now due to money. Eventually I want some AT Italia INOX so im not going to buy rims until id have the funds for those. Plus my tires are brand new practically. So for right now just seeing if its a good idea to paint my stock rims.

you can get "plasti-dip" at homedepot now. it goes on like spray paint, its cheap like spray paint, but it turns to a rubberized coating when dry. so if you dont like it, wait till it dries, and you can actually peel it off. its very popular around here. i've even sprayed a friends stock rims with black p-dip. they looked pretty good. (it wasn't a GA though) and if you change your mind, its easy to peel off.

its hard to go wrong for $6.

My plan is to plasti-dip the rims if I did this. I'm on the fence about it and before I spend the time and little bit of money on it was looking to see if anyone swayed me one way or the other.

IMO, forget the Italia rims - I agree they look the best looking, but you don't want to be buying discontinued rims, a close find I think may work are these, (http://bit.ly/173zzjJ)

As far as the paint goes, spend the money elsewhere, plastidip is cheap, but it won't last, comes off too easily and gets dirty with a lot of difficulty to clean. Better off putting the $40 worth of cans into a new rims fund.

Props on the photoshop skills, wish I could do that. As stated above, I'd leave them the way they are until you get the funs, but I know how it is to have your vehicle look the same for long periods of time.

Side note, you could plasti-dip them for winter and peal it off after that way you get a taste of how it looks and how cleaning them goes for you. Just a thought.

Be different, paint them a gunmetal color. People painting stock wheels black 1. Look ugly as sht 2. They're a dime a dozen

I bought cans of white plasti dip last year. I returned all of it. I also had a g2 yellow caliper kit. But decided i needed the money for college and returned it all :/
