Another painted rims post.

Got tired of my powder coated gray rims so I painted them dark gun metal metallic. They came out pretty good I think.

Looks great, only advice i would have is just paint the center caps and match as well as you can. Would look much better solid.

BTW I wish I could do a custom color on my car

RL I taped up two of the caps and painted them and installed them on one side and left the other two alone and installed them. Looked at them both ways. It was a difficult to decide. After looking at both ways, I just felt that the colored caps were just too much Dark Gunmetal. However if in the future I want to go that way it is easy enough to do.

I like the rims a lot...looks nice. About a year ago when I felt like I had cash burning a hole in my pocket I was strongly considering looking into buying a set of Ap2 wheels that had been powder coated/painted gun metal grey. Lookin good
