Painted hubcaps

Hey, i was wondering if anyone has any pics of painted hubcaps on a 7thgen. I know this is a stupid question, and im sure it looks gay, but i was just wondering.

I have yet to see a 7th gen with those, but I can tell you I have seen cars with painted hubcaps, mainly Mirages and 5th-6th gens...
It depends on the color of the car, style of hubcap and if the finishing on the paint is good, but I have seen many that look very nice.
I personally wouldn't do it, but...

eh i dunno .. in my opinion I think it looks kind of beat. If you have a decent amount of breakdust buildup on it, just repaint them silver again. Painting them any other color just makes it look really cheap. The same goes for taking off the hubcaps and just going with black steelies... it's better left stock with normal painted hubcaps.

I have mine painted black, and my car is ssm. I've never gotten bad comments, in fact most people think they are rims. I just did it because I don't like the hub cap look but I also don't like the blank steel wheel look either.

Found this Civic a while ago. Doesn't look bad.. actually looks good.

I usually see people without hubcaps instead of painting them.

*Not my Civic! I wish I could remember whos it was so I could give them credit. Awesome Civic!*

not everyone can save the $500 - $1500. like students (not me ), or people who just dont have the money, or want to spend that much.

Alright I'll give it to that owner, that doesn't look that bad. They look like more of a gunmetal color then black.
