you know what would look nice, get a 2 tone paint job. Maybe brush the face and gloss black or anthracite the inner parts. That would be the first and I'd imagine it looking very clean!

Need a bigger pic. are those lms? I love gloss black wheels, but I have a feeling it might not work for these wheels.

Will you only be painting the face or the lip also.

Need some bigger pics and info.

no way man, the only thing i would consider, is having them diamond black, as if you bought them from bbs that way, i think the gloss black should be a no go
