Painting stock rims? What colour is good for blue lude?

Hey guys, was thinking of painting my stock rims for my 97 SI blue lude... cause i don't like my current rims atm.

i don't want to do them black cause atm i don't really like the look.

was thinking gold, or gunmetal or like bronze...
what do you guys recommend.. or should i just keep them silver.

oh if anyone has any pics of like painted stock rims on a blue lude would be nice to see. Saw the other painted stock rims thread of black on black but didn't want to post in that.

Re: Painting stock rims? What colour is good for blue lude?



this is what they look like, think i might go gold, gotta go buy stuff and start sanding i guess...

thanks for replies guys

edit: sigh i haven't been free lately and sanding is more of a pain then i thought, anyways i was wondering if anyone was free and kind enough.... if they could photoshop gold onto this prelude for me, this is not my car, but i think it'd be very similar when i put my stockies on. I would like to see what it would sortave look like before forking out money for paint.
