i think you shoulda kept chrome "A" and the outline of the grill other than that looks really good. hey take a pic of the wheel paint i been wanting to do my oem 17s gunmetal my car is green and i think would look nice with a darker rim tone.

here is the picture of my painted rims... it came out lot darker than what it is... maybe it's my post processing... lol if you wanted to know the actual paint can itself... it's dupri color gunmetal... they only have 4 colors for wheels: black, silver, gunmetal, and clear coat.

Clear coat isn't really a color..:laugh:

But I like the rims. Gona be doing mine gunmetal as well. Yours looks really black. How many coats did you do? And did you add a clear coat?

I still have to do my chrome delete for my car.

yea i got rid of most of the chrome too... i just gotta vinyl the window trim and i think imma go with color matched handle chrome. Yea i only did like 2 coats on the wheels without clear coat... it has hits metalic flat look... i really like it. :) one thing i shouldve done is lower it a little more... looks almost stock doesnt it? it's lowered on H&R 1.3 front and 1.2 in the back... shouldve gone with eibachs...
