I've been thinking about painting my stock steelies. I can't really justify new wheels with another kid on the way. This is a quick photoshop, just wanted to get opinions. In this pic its painted steelies with chrome beauty rings.
Not half bad. You could probably play around a bit more with colors but it's really not a bad idea. The chrome rings will really make stand out too. Where would you get those rings anyways or would you make em yourself?
It is a question of tastes, but the color shown with white..... not my cup of tea. Straight black (no chrome rings) looks good and maybe some other bright color if you put it somewhere else on the car too (pin stripe.... decal... something!), but by themselves, looks funky to me!
I like the steelys when I had my on I painted them red and put the stock caps on and painted them black it looked good. I also agree with defjake I think if you use that bright of a color yo should use the same color somewhere else on the car so they dont look out of place.
i like the rendering. if i were to go steelies, i'd certainly go with the chrome dress up rings too. as for the color, personally, i'd go with a gunmetal/graphite gray, so they'd stand out a bit more but without being "too stock" looking. if you sprayed 'em with another coat of black and a few coats of clear, i think it would look better than the current black, which seems to fade and become a more flat black.
