gold or black?

I'm not sure if I should bother or not... but the silver just looks boring.

if I do go gold I'll get "emery gold" (kind of has a green tinge to it)



yes/no? would it just say "please give me speeding tickets?"

You might want to consider saving the time and money for new wheels. But, if I had to pick I would say black cause I don't think that gold goes with dark colors.

I like the idea of painting the wheels gold, just make sure to take your time on em cause I've seen some hack jobs before. Let us know how they come out

if i were you, i would do black. black on black is sex and with the stock wheels, it would look more aftermarket then gold. although that gold is really sick looking. i would def suggest the playing card method when painting them, just wedge a card between the tire and rim and line it all the way around. ive painted my rotas 3 diff colors and it turns out really good, just take ur time.

I have black rims on a DGM WRX and nothing beats the color combo. I'd go with gold rims on a blue or white WRX.

the good thing about painting your own rims, if you end up not likeing it, just sand it off and try a difrent color! ;D
