Re: should i paint my steelies

I wouldn't paint the steelies, because kinda see that as a waste. If it is really bothering you than by all means, go for it.

Re: should i paint my steelies

well one hub is a lil scratched and i thought that possibly the blacked steelies will give me a slight idea for what the black rims would look like in a way.

Re: should i paint my steelies

NO! Just accept the fact that. Some are Balla's and some are not, right now you are not. If you paint them then you become a ricer or poser. Now if you paint them and then use the car for auto x then that is ok. Just do not rock painted steelies on the public roads.

Re: should i paint my steelies

^^ freeloader......

i think the painted steelies shouldnt matter if your gona get rims anyway. you painted STEELIES black...its not liek u tried painting them white with a red lip or anything. it looks the same to me.. i dont think it makes u a poser or ricer or w.e...how the hell does that even count as rice? if u paint them and auto-x then its ok and if u drive on the street its not?? wtf?? what if he drives to auto x.....with painted steelies. so hes on the street as a rice for a while, then wen he gets to the track hes automagically cool? gimme a break.

Re: should i paint my steelies

What you need to do is go to wal-mart and get some chrome paint.. then some painters tape.. then you need to tape off the steelies in the design of the 00si rims and get to painting.


Have a good day.

Re: should i paint my steelies

Yes he does, It is just that some people use the stock for auto x because they don't want to messup their aftermarket wheels. Also that the steelies are lighter than say some 18's. So for that reason if he wanted to paint the wheels then cool and yes if he puts them on the car and drives to the event it would be ok. He has them on for a purpose but if he paints them and tries to pull them off as aftermarket then he is the poser or ricer. If he paints them Anitfreeze green as a joke then that would be funny.

.......................HE IS PAINTING...HIS STEELIES...BLACK.................................. ............. how is that even remotely close to pulling off them off as aftermarket. like someone is really gona come up to him and say hey what kind of wheels are those...i have some that look just liek that but theyre under my hubcaps... u cant be f*dfging serious man. it is not for the purpose of auto x or looking cool, he is simply painting them temporarily so hes not drivinig with rusted and dirty looking steelies. he wants an idea of how black rims look on his car.. are u kidding me? do u really gota be that defensive over something so stupid?? u need to chill man, i apologize for the guy who started this thread for not being as much of a cool speed racer auto x car god like you...thanks anyway for trying to make me look bad.

Re: should i paint my steelies

^^^I think that someone has their pantys in a wod..... I have never entered my car in an auto x event. So where I am a god I do not understand. Also, I was just stating my opinion, as he asked for from the title. Yes, I was serious, I have seen people paint the stock steelies and try to pull them off as bullet hole rims. I did not know the original posters intentions, I was just trying to warn him from the get go. If all he want to do is hide the ugly under the cap then go for it.

Last thing please learn how to type, or where you just too pissed to care?

Re: should i paint my steelies

You know what I say.....paint them.

You should paint them because I think through life we all frequently forget about having a sense of humor.

If you just paint them black then it wouldn't make any difference at all. If you paint them black with a chrome lip, it would be interesting, if you painted them with a spiral going toward the middle, that would be hilarious. Like this, paint this on your rim:
