Getting my wheels painted!

I was washing my car last week and I noticed that my brembo pkg wheels are pitting pretty bad... I noticed it a while back n was gonna let it go but it's gotten worse since.. So went down to the dealership the other day n I'm in w a few of the guys down there pretty well.. SO I got them talked into painting my wheels black for me.. So excited hopefully gettin it done next week!!

Re: Getting my wheels painted!

I've never been a fan of the whole 'stealth' gig -which to me, usually means a set of black wheels, smoked lens covers, etc. I'm a fan of 'visibility', myself. I think-at the risk of stating the obvious-that it is strictly a personal preference/choice. I do also think that the "C" stripes ona Grabber Blue car would be sharp!

Prolly just wheels n stripes... I don't want stealthy I want NASTY lol.. Maybe a trunk lid filler n that's all I want I think the tail lights n everything else is too much.. I'm just obsessed w black wheels... Had two diff sets on my 04 GT..

I think that will look sharp on our car-given the exterior color!
