Color question

I have the Dixon Bros Racing prerunner bumper and wanted the creme color paint, but it looks too goofy with nothing else the creme color. I don't know what else I can get/paint to match, I planning on making rock sliders this coming summer and matching the paint. I found these mean wheels that I probably won't get, just want to see the opinions if I would get these and paint the ring on the wheel the creme color the same as the bumper.

I plan on turning it into a prerunner after college here in a year or a few. The bumper does look big, but after some long travel and at least 33's and fiberglass it won't look big. It's going to be like this for a while though.
I don't want the 'plain' black bumper like everyone else...I want something different and crazy, which is what it is, I personally like the color scheme but I definately need some more of the color to balance it.

Mike (Drayke) has those and painted them, I suggest talking to him on aim or w/e about it.

I'd suggest getting some of those double beadlocks from AEV or HighImpact.net

Get that bumper powder coated black and call it a day.

I wouldn't even bother with those fake beadlock wheels either.

buy that last set of sliders that GIL has over at RRP, get those powder coated creme.

i like what you got going, i think it will look hot once you get some LT and 33s.

That's an idea, I was going to make my own rock sliders, but i'll check those out.

Thanks for the good comment!
