SH rims painted white?

Anyone have pics of SH wheels painted white? I've tried looking around without any luck.

I don't like my black enkei's anymore and want to put the SH wheels back on, but I can't decide if i want to leave them silver or have my buddy paint them white... I have a white pearl lude..

I'm kinda leaning towards just leaving them silver myself, you guys probably just convinced me.

I need new tires too, thinking about lower profile, 45 instead of 50?

Its on stock suspension... thoughts?

215/45/16 will be fine. I have 215/50/16 and I'm lowered and occasionally if I turn in somewhere really awkwardly and sorta fast, it scrubs the fenderwell. I wanted 45's but they didn't have any and I really needed to get tires that day. I wouldn't have that problem if I coulda gotten 45's.

The thing with white wheels is that you need to be prepared to clean them every day or they look like crap. They turn black quickly with brake dust, and if it's left on there you'll never get it off.

I'm leaving em silver guys thanks. Half the reason i want to get rid of the wheels I have is cause I hate cleaning them, pain in the ass.

Here are the tires I'm getting for the SH wheels, I can't wait.

I like the tread :) The wheels should be lighter, and more quick on its feet at low speeds, compared to my 17's.

Falken Azenis RT-615
