    Painting My Wheels

    I'm thinking of painting the wheels of my car black with a red borderline. What do you guys think? Appreciate your feedback.
    I'm attaching a photoshoped pics of the wheels after painting.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    The combo bites a bit with the yellow calipers, no?

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I could make it all black, but I thought the red border will give it a more modern look.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I think you should do whatever you want with it, it is after all, your car. But in my personal opinion, I would not paint them. Or if you do paint them, paint them all black. But that's just me, you do what you want.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I start to like painted wheels in back with the border matches the color of the car.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    Makes the car look plasticky. Looks like a cheap toycar IMO.
    If you want something special, you might consider other rims.
    I dunno if standard CGT rims are the best around, buyt they are not the coolest IMO.
    Or you can get you car personalized with your initials, or maybe a golden eagle on the front hood?

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I would leave them alone , would worked better with red calipers imo..

    throt..

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    i'd leave it as it is, i think it looks great with the stock rims

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    ...it would look good if the rims were polished, instead of Red.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    don't do it!! looks terrible!

    there is another thread showing a black cgt with painted rims, but on that car the rims are only partly painted.. and match the rest of the car..

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    Here maybe this pic will clear things up for you;)

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    i was refering to this...

    Aww, it's cruel to run down golden eagles!

    Maybe that's what the guy with the pheasant in his car was trying to do!

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    How about some of >these< ?

    Perhaps Dr Phil could do a quick photoshop to illustrate.

    (Yes, I'm in a silly mood.)

    I think all black would look best, aside from stock. Can you photoshop all black rims, with no colored borders?

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I love painted rims!!!!!!

    PAINT IT!!!!

    ciaoo

    Breaker one-niner, breaker one-niner.
    Dis here Doc Piddy glidin along the boulevard of Tarmac City.
    I got a smokey on my tail, a polarbear on my back door and feel like cruisin for a bruisin.
    Now I just need myself a Sally Field in a pair of wedding panties and I'm all set. Yeehaw!

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    Black rims is a federal offense IMO.
    Looks like youre running on steel winter rims.

    Otherwise you might wanna consult "Queer eye for the straight CGT owner"...?

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    lol, is that CGT a photoshop or did someone really do that to their car Doc?!

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    LOL Dr.P! Ooh, I think I just wet m'self.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I'm with the majority. Does nothing for the looks.

    Thats a photoshop - but there's probably some texas billionaire somewhere who would do this for real. Trust me.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    How bout a bling-version?
    Here's a gangsta-redneck-porn wholesaler combo I thought would play well.



    Re: Painting My Wheels

    LOL ,, Extremely bad and extremely sad..

    throt..

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    This is actually quite cool, I've never been a huge fan of painted wheels but in the case of the CGT, it seems the outer part is left in metal which gives it a unique feel and look, I like it.
    Ha, I think it would look nice, the only thing I'm not sure about is, as it's been mentionned, is the clash between the yellow calipers and the red rims.

    The color boarder on the rims and color calipers will make them different.

    Re: Painting My Wheels

    I hate you Dr. Phil

    Now that my kids saw your photoshop pic they are screaming and saying yeah daddy yeah... paint your car the same way.
