help, opinion on rim color

For a black 5th gen lude. what color should i powdercoat my rims, bronze or gold. My clearcoat is coming off so i'm just going to have them coated. I cant decide, so i just need a little push.

Re: help, opinion on rim color

The color is titanium right now but 5zigen did a poor job with the clearcoat flaking. Picture below. (this is one of the better rims, but on the other 3, it has really bad flaking around the lip). It's also going to be slammed on some Koni/GC, so I'm starting to move towards Bronze. Polish zigens, i just can't see. Purple with a black lip is too much for me. I want a more sophisticated ride. lol. Thanks for all the input though. Any other thoughts?

Re: help, opinion on rim color

polished would be awesome but maintenance would suck. do whatever color you want man, its your ride. i went from black to white wheels, and i never thought id rock white wheels. i like em better too

Re: help, opinion on rim color

Bronze or white would honestly look the sickest...Bronze would require the least "maintenance". But a glossy, clear-coated white wouldn't need much work either...What requires maintenance is matte black with a red lip...Lol holy ****, my buddy is ALWAYS re-spraying his EVO rims that have this set-up.

Re: help, opinion on rim color

If your getting polished, make sure you get those BLOX Chromoly Lug Nuts...Expensive as **** (for lug nuts) but they really look nice with chrome.

Here's a link: BLOX Racing Chromoly Lug Nut | Password JDM

Those are actually a good price for good lugnuts, you should check out Project Kics lugnuts then try to tell me Blox are expensive.

Project's are like $200...And honestly, I don't know what justifies a company to mark them up so high, lol. I usually just get Muteki's or BLOX's...Project's have always caught my eye; but not for $200.

Re: help, opinion on rim color

those chromoly's would look much better against a polished wheel then red. if you end up going bronze then red would look good.

Re: help, opinion on rim color

my vot is polish with the blox ligs. they look simple and clean. it will turn heads, and at the same time lay low and be low pro. if you want to stand out i would say got whte with red lugs, but i dont know how these rims look white. i would polish and then you dont need to wory about paint flaking either. just my 2 cents
