Might powdercoat my rims, what do you guys think?

I'm thinking of getting my rims powder coated this summer after i get my car repainted. Heres what I cam up with so far in the chop I did. I want a black rim with a silver lip what do you guys think honestly? Oh yh and don't mind the tinted headlights I got bored and choped those as well as a drop and window tint but just look at the rims and the color of the car. Thanx


Original Rims

If he did that you wouldnt notice the black lip because of the color of the tires...

how about bronze? that would look nice on those rims.

IMO the rims you have would probably look good with one color.

^ I'm getting a quote from a local shop to powder coat but otherwise I was going to paint them in the paint booth where my dad works with some heavy duty gloss black paint they use to paint parts for machines. They are jus summer rims so they're not exposed to a lot of elements like road salt. The tires are 205/40/17. Thanks for the input! i'm gonna do it for sure just not sure if i'll powdercoat

Thanks. Front window has 20% down the whole thing and a limo (approx 7%) strip on the top. All other windows are 7% as well.

Nice attempt, but that looks a lot more brown then bronze. If it ended up looking like that, i'd say go wtih gunmetal. *blah*
