i'm getting tired of the bland anthracite color on my SSR competitions, and i'm getting some new tires soon so i'm comtemplating color options. i've always wanted a set of wheels like no others so i'm going the anti-gunmetal route. all these colors would be non-metallic, i've always liked the look of solid enamel colors for wheels.

these will be going on an 04 aspen white STi, so i figure i can pull off any color. and the fire truck green is like the almost flourescent green some fire trucks are painted now adays. let me hear some opinions too. :D

i'm gonna be rocking these on the street and track, w/ some new Kumho MX's. and i'm leaning more towards a blue hue in my mind right now. although the fire truck green seems tempting i think i'll stay somewhat saneish for now.

i guess the only question remains, should i do the sky blue or look for something a bit darker more like a true blue? :confused:

If I got a set of wildly painted wheels it would strictly be fore a track/auto-x set. :)

A guy in the DC area painted his wheels orange on his black Camero. It made me think of halloween.

chameleon paint would be fun, but i'm going for the solid enamel look this time around.

i'm painting my Comps' so i don't have to get another set of wheels, i never liked the anthracite, even after i first got the wheels. it's just kind of bland compared to some wheel finishes.

and you couldn't pay me to rock rotas' even if they were painted some different color. :lol:

i'm still leaning toward the sky blue more so than the green, but time will tell. i'm going to start sanding and masking this weekend. :tup:

well after all the other color suggestions i went w/ a medium blue. the color looks a bit darker in person, and should darken a bit more as the piant cures. i like them, typical colors be damned, pigeon hole that. :lol: blue FTW!!!!!!!!!





i just seems like a cop-out when people paint their wheels a "custom" typical color like silver or gun metal, its like repainting your car a "custom" shade of an OEM paint color that originally came on the car.!?
