I know you said if you got the gold it wouldnt match the interior, but gold n purple, being the right shades, go really good together! Just add a little tiny bit of gold accents on the inside, and it would look awesome!

Gold rims ftwww!

Those are DR9's right?
Paint them, I would like to see what it looks like.

Thinking of painting my DR9 lip red, But a dark purple may look real good.

just paint the 17s purple cause that seems to be what you want! if you paint the whole thing and lose the chrome lip it could look really sick! just my .02

I would try it. I have painted my 5 zigens twice already (flat black and now white) and I am thinking about doing them in cosmic blue (my 06 wrx is also OBP) next. If you dont like it just change to a different color...

Keep the 17's, Paint them Purple, if I were you.
That's nice and would be more convenient for modification, I'm not a troublesome person! Anyhow, still depends on your own opinion.
thanks man, It would definally save me time, convienience, and money if i just kept and painted the 17's, at this point... i think i just might

Purple is my favorite color, so I'm a little bit bias. Perhaps even a darker purple?

I like the purple with the chrome lip. Helps to break up and differentiate between the dark area of the wheel and the dark paint of the car.

If you're going to do the purple get it all purple. Don't leave the lip Chrome that just takes away from it.
