Cool car! This is Rustoleum dark machine gray out of a rattle can.
it looks fine the way it is!! if you dont like it, then a nice creme would look good!
The old wheel color thread. I'm gonna go get some popcorn. Anyone want anything ?
^^^ Yeah grab me a beer and some red krylon..
Anytime there is a what color wheel questions you can bet the bank that it is a FNG. Who gives a crap what color you paint your wheels. It's your car you need to decide what color to use. Jeesh do you have someone pick out your cloths also?
have you been huffin the paint again? or do you just enjoy people hating on you?
Bubble Gum Pink.
Personally, I like a nice tartan plaid. The only problem is that shaking the can to stir it up causes all the lines to come out all screwed up. I think there MUST be a cure for this.
There is a special machine, hard to find, very expensive.
I think pink with purple dots and use a brush to apply
just coat them in blue chassis grease
There is a cure to make your plaid spray paint acclimate properly. Bugs Bunny did it. Use the search function!
Be the first person ever to have Red wheels on a car.....
lol i love this site
wait you mean spray painting my(rims)lol i mean wheels red or green is not cool
Damn! Welcome to the HAMB. It's a tough crowd as you can tell.
I haven't been here long myself but I think you have to start out a question like that with:
"I can't decide what color to paint the wheels on this bitch so I wanted to get a couple of opinions. Yeah, I know it's my car and I can do what I want. I'm just askin' so do me a favor, if you feel like giving me some grief just shut the fuck up. Now, what's your opinion? I'm thinking chartreuse...etc...etc."
Well said Saxman, why can't people give the man ideas, and if you don't have any, well go to the next thread. I vote for the cream color, or a light green.
With a classy ride like that I would go with cream and some burgundy accents....and for the love of CHRIST do not paint those stupid things res, lime green or any other color that you see every tard with a rattle can doing!!
Gloss black wheels go with any color. Here's my old truck with Duplicolor gloss black and Duplicolor clear.
BTW, nice car and nice pin-up art! It's a tough decision on the wheel color. A cream would definitely be nice. Perhaps a light green or a medium blue. Of course there is always red. It's not real original but it's traditional and it looks good. Personally I like the cream or just gloss black.
Blast them, and let them get rusty.......
ya, an offwhite/cream would probably look pretty slick, and if not, paint em a different color, its just spray paint..
I heard that there was only one color for wheels and that being red. NOT, I went with Krylon True Blue and added a good layer of Krylon clear coat over that. They have been on my daily driver for six years and still true blue. I did this thinking if I powder coated them and didn't like them I would be stuck for about $40 per rim to coat. so I tried Krylon first.
A deep burgundy might work,
Can we raise up the post above so the drop is about 4 inches less?! I think we might be on to something there!
I`m feelin the lime green !!@#!#!$@
The monster wa
Mark , Nice car ! I would tie it in with something else ! Whats the deal with the bumper and grille ? If you are going to leave them that color dont touch your wheels . It looks fine . It may look funny if you paint them . But what do I know Im only a FNG. The only reason my cars look so good is because of other peoples cars !!! LOL
Traditional Theres That word again. And of course the people who go along with the word to tell you what it is and how you to accomplish it.
Red, green or any other supposed over done color are done so much because they look good, plain and simple. It blows when people knock something because they cant stand how popular it is.
I like the look of the burgundy wheels in the pic above. But there is nothing wrong with red or what ever color wheels you want.
