Ok guys I have a 2003 Liquid Grey ZX3 with smoked bumper lenses, soon to be tinted windows, glossy black trim pieces that all gives off a grey/black scheme. I want to stand out more so I was thinking about painting my factory 16" wheels gunmetal grey. It would go with the scheme and be a little different too. Only thing is I have never seen this done on my wheels on my color car so not sure how it would look. What do you guys think?

The sister version of my tribal


GuttedHatch's (what was he thinking
)


And mine , its not stock wheels but you get the idea


I hope I helped you out,
If you have a link to a pic of your car I can Photoshop any color you want your rims / windows or anything.(I use photoshop for a living so it wont be hard)

Cheers

Thanks for the help man! I have decided to take the plunge and do it. I have 3 cans of Duplicolor gun metal wheel paint and 2 cans of their clear coat for wheels. I also have a can of grey high temp primer. Think I will need any more paint then that? I might go and get another can of clear and maybe 1 more can of primer and paint just to be safe. I don't want to start this project and not be able to finish and have to drive with some wheels gunmetal and the others silver....hehe.
