photoshop request! colored style 162 on SGM

can someone please photoshop these pics

really love these wheels and want to enjoy them for sometime before i go in the market for wheels. so i want to paint them , i added 15mm spacers in the rear. Soon i am going to put 10mm in the front.

as we all know sparkling graphite metallic is one of the hardest colors to get wheels for, so i really need help with this so i can decide what color to paint them.

i do not want black!

i was thinking, gunmetal, copper,bronze,a goldish bronze , nothing bright

can anyone help me out? i know we have a handful of people who are good with photoshop, just need someone who can spare a small amount of time for this !

thanks

there's a guy on here with SGM that powder coated them gunmetal and it looked really good, I searched but couldn't find the thread. Here's a guy that did black...

I agree the 162's look better in gray though, in fact I often leave the brake dust on my wheels so they look darker lol

just download the gimp and do it yourself? Gimp is free and does everything Photoshop does.
I'd do it for you but I just don't have time.

Hellloooo...

So i'm feeling generous, hope these are ok - if you want another colour it'll take me 20secs so best thing is post a picture of the colour (just the colour) and i'll match it.






Hope thats helpful mate, certainly killed time at work!
