Should i paint my rims?

so everyone who talks to me about my jeep tells me i need black rims. i know my jeep's "theme" is pretty much 'lots of black'... but rims too?





anyone want to photo shop? was thinking it would have to be flat black. Either all black, or just the "star" and not the lip.

any input? i personally think i like the contrast from the rims...

Re: Should i paint my rims?

IMO I think it would be too much. Just add some stillen Headlight Covers and Smoked Fogs like what Scott got.

Re: Should i paint my rims?

They would make your wheels look a lil smaller, IDK what to call this color though.. I think it looks cool though

thanks man, i gotta say...it keeps the jeep so much cooler, and its BAD ASS now just waiting to get pulled over.

do you think a simple satin black would give that look? should i get them painted? or powder coated?

Re: Should i paint my rims?

I'd definitely go for either gun metal gray or matte black!
