Swapped the rear disc brakes and replaced the bushings on the trailing arms ect

New wheels! What color should I powdercoat them? Was thinking a flat to semi gloss black?

Don't paint those rims black, they're gonna look like spare tires. I'd say go with a slightly darker shade of silver, like so.

Gunmetal or anthracite on the wheels. Car looks great, even if it had half the miles...wow!

I like Nar's sugestion, a darker gray. But a nice silver would be timeless or a shade of bronze/gold would pop with you color.

Thank you for all the replies.

Was planning on running the black drop lug nuts as well, Im leaning more twords a darker grey but almost black. Trying to keep it classy, not to loud but with a unique look. TOUGH CHOICES!!!!! lol

I always have trouble visualizing the way they will look on the car. Even with my rough photoshop skills I've made little progress.

I do kinda like the gunmetal or darker grey look though

I photoshopped my car with black rims...it looked awesome! Then I painted one of the wheels...it looked terrible! I think you'll be happy with some form of gunmetal. You can do a poll and get the community opinion :-)b
