Should i paint my rims?

I got this mustang march 23rd.

I love it but i would love to have black rims on it too.


I am also thinking about putting a yellow stripe or red stripe on it. There is already black stripe with words mustang on the side but you cant even see it unless you really try to look. What idiots at ford decided to put a black strip on a black car.



What do you guys think i should do to it... should i just get the black rims and leave it blacked out.


I remember looking at a website where you could see pictures of different cars that people have moded. You could select any car and see what people did to them.

I vote....powder coat yours black or go with new black rims. A yellow stripe does stand out but Hertz rents yellow on black Mustangs with an off-center stripe. I'd stay away from that look.

Blacked out is nice but really up to you. Just google black mustang with xxxxx stripes and you can see what others have done and decide for yourself. Nice ride btw

Iv painted mine and I loved them. My suggestion would be to not do all black. Go black with another color around the outside

I have basically the same car as you and I'm going to so tint with the stock rims. The stockers have really grown on me although if you do decide to black them out make sure you either prep them or get them professionally done or else they will peel and eventually look horrible

Plasti dip them, that way you can get a good feel for it and if you dont like it then you caan peel it off. But if you do like it you can then go on to actually powdercoat them. Good luck hope you like it!
