Default Dont want to buy new rims, What do you think of this?

I dont really feel like buying new rims so i was thinking about painting my stock ones. Now this is a really crappy photoshop so keep that in mind, and the color would match the color of the car WRB.

i gunmetal looks great on WRB.

but if you were to do the blue, i think it would look a little better if you did the entire wheels the WRB color opposed to the big lip.

but id say bright gold or a dark graphite/gunmetal.
my .02

good luck painting the wheels

Duplicolor Bronze.

It's damn sexy.

Gold wouldn't look too bad, either.

+1 for Duplicolor bronze.

The WRB wheels may be a little too much blue. But hey, try it if you want. You can always re-do the wheels later.

i think the general consensus is to leave the wrb on the body and keep it off the wheels. i have gunmetal on my wrb and absolutely love it. check out the wrb gallery and get some ideas.

I like that last one. The general consensus is to to leave your wheels alone. Do what you want. Its your car...

There's a reason for that.

I just don't understand why someone would be willing to spend the money on a CF hood and CF trunk (also worthless mods, btw) and not be willing to spend $1000 or less on a set of decent wheels and tires. If the wheels were decent looking, they would look infinitely better than painted stock wheels.

Then again, any mod can be a worthless mod. Supposing he isn't going to mod his car other than painting his stock rims, I don't see any harm. However if he's gonna be getting crazy body kits and various CF parts, then i wouldn't think it would be in right taste to stick w/ the stock wheels.

Just because someone doesn't like a particular mod doesn't mean it's worthless. It obviously meant something to him to have a CF hood and trunk instead of wheels. Just like the stock late-90s Accords I see running around town with gigantic aluminum spoilers and such. Definitely not what I would do, but it obviously does something for the owner of the car...

But I'd have to agree with y0gfx to a point. If there was a crazy full body kit on the car, I'd probably be incline to ask why spend all that $$ and time on dress-up without stepping up to wheels, too?

But for now, as the car is, paint the wheels whatever color. If there's a CF hood and trunk, I'd lean towards gunmetal. But hey, it's not my car. If the guy wants to paint the wheels a green and orange swirl, so be it. If I don't like it, that's my problem. If the owner likes it, it isn't worhtless.

You might as well take the Subaru badge off and put on a Honda badge. Jk. The stock wheels look fine as it is. Dont do anything to it
