I don't think the matte black fits LMs too well... I really like regular finish on them. Your car does look very handsome w/matte black wheels tho.

hm, i believe it's better to keep the lip unpainted... therefore your rims will look decent... if it's like this, your rims looks smaller than 18".

matte black CENTER would've been nice....but powdercoating it entirely kinda makes the rims look hella smaller for some reason.

props on the effort tho!

I thought a painted center is what you were going to do as well (i.e. - "Derrick").
