Default What color to refinsh my wheels?

I have some TE-37s knock offs that I have been using for winter rims for the past 3 winters now. They are starting to show their age, so I was going to get them refinished. Right now they are black with a chrome lip, and my car is a true red.

What color should I do them? Green, orange, blue? Don't really care as they are my winter wheels, so I'm willing to do something different lol.

How much do you want to spend? You could get the lip powdercoated candy red and then do the inside a black chrome or a matte black color.

If you dont want to spend a lot and just want to spray paint them then idk lol.

Just figured i throw out that idea.

Cost is not an issue since I have access to sandblasting and powdercoating equipment.

Nice. Me too. lol. Matte Black centers and a Dark Candy red lip would pop i think. Or you could do a chrome base with 120% gloss trans black over it. That would stand out too. Deff different.

Also you could try black centers with a silver vein on the lip with a candy red over that. Ask your powdercoater. That would look sick too.

Only concern with white is how hard it would be to keep clean. I can see it staining easy.

Yeah thats why im not doing mine that color anymore. Would be nice though. Im sitting on a few pounds of pearl white now lol. Other options are mirror black or black chrome. Those are really cool too. Sounds like you want something really loud like that orange or green though.. hmm.

Doesn't necessarily need to be loud. The wheels right now are black with a chrome lip, my summer wheels are black with a red lip. Just looking for something different.
