    Painted OEM alloys

    These are one of the few factory alloys I like,however I need to be just a little different. I'm thinking about taking them to Wheel Medic and having them painted white and a red accent stripe painted around the circumference of the lip about 1/4 in wide

    Here's an example Volk CE28N Time Attack White with red stripe.jpg

    agree.


    and as a suggestion, you might want to invest in real aftermarket wheels you like and keep the OEM wheels as beater wheels/winter wheels. IMO it will look better

    Well i guess it really depends on how you want your car to look. More sporty ricey type or keep the car too its name and class.

    there was a photochop somewhere of BBS LM's on a ILX, it looked good, but those wheels are so played out. So many nice wheels to choose from these days, look beyond LM's

    If you wanna paint the OE wheels id use Plasti-dip man, then if you dont likey just take it off..........Played out wheels? man every wheel is played these days, from the Vdub guys to the Lexus to Honda guys every wheel/colour combo has been done and over done a million times, its what looks good to you that matters

    I like the factor alloys... I think if you're a white wheel guy.. it stands out like CRAZY. Me personally? I'd like a charcoal high gloss finish.
