painting my rims

Okay guys... I want to paint the stock rims on my 1994 Mustang. I know many will say just get new rims. Not in the budget right now as that money is going to actually paint my car (trust me, it needs it bad). What color should I paint the wheels? Black, Gun Metal or Silver... Thanks guys!!!

Right now it is an ugly Fuschia purplish paintjob. It is scratched old and flaking. It will end up being either black or a burgundy/wine color.

Plastidip! Looks great and it's cheap. I just did my bullits yesterday. Only took two and a half cans and couple of hours

Get a stock for color like that cherry red on the new edges. Those look badass. But black would look good too man. If I were you I wouldn't paint the rims, just save that money for new ones. Youll be surprised on Craigslist, people sell old stock GT rims for cheap.
