Painting my old rims

So I decided that I'm finally going to fix my rims up and repaint them. I've come up with a few different options, take a look below and let me know what you think. Please ignore the old pics and photoshop work. I plan on going with the Dupli-color wheel paint in silver or charcoal or a combination of the two.

POSITIVE feedback is appreciated. I know a few of you already dislike the style of the rims, you guys can keep your opinions to yourself.

Re: Painting my old rims

Got to go with #2.

# 3 lookis too much like a steelie with a hubcap and #4 you lose all the detail of the rim.
