So i just picked up a set of 04 WRX rims from jeff. They are going to be my winter rims.

Im looking to have some fun with these! I was thinking of painting them some crazy colors or what not. Help me pick out a color for these bad boys to rock for the winter!

As of right now they are painted a mustard yellow color.

:twisted:

If they're just your winter set, I wouldn't even bother painting them. They'll spend most of the winter covered in road salt, so I wouldn't spend the time or money painting them. That's just my opinion. Do what you prefer! :mrgreen:

Flat black is pretty easy to paint an looks good.

Grey is cool too.

everyone's doing green and orange......i'm a simple guy, I voted for flat black.

I'm guessing your car is white? I think i saw a pic a while ago...

If you want to do it right, do it pink. Winter sucks and nothing will brighten your mood and sparkle your day unless you can go outside and see those beautiful pink rims. Just saying...

That would be so JDM... DO IT!!!

But honestly, you should go with orange marker paint, it would be one of a kind...

Holy crap! pink is still in the lead!

I got to admit, i would rock the pink, i think im tuff enough :lol:

But the hunter orange is also bad to the bone on white.

My pick would be lime green. It's pretty crazy but at the same time it's really kick ass too. 8)

I'd probably paint them gold. I don't see a point in doing it a silly color. That or flat black so you can't see em from a distance haha. Sorry guys I'm a huge non fan of stock wheels lol. But hey if you decide to go pink and you find some pink paint that works well on wheels... do me a favor and let me know :(

It was :( because I can't find pink wheel paint, and I don't want to pay alot to paint my ugly wheels I have now.

It will cost maybe $20-$30 for paint, clear/sealer, and sand paper or pad. Its fairly inexpensive to paint
