Icon5 Did a PS on the bimmer

So I'm tossing the idea around to paint my wheels on the car. I did a quick PS on it. It doesn't look great, but I believe I am going to do it. What do you think? I would do gloss black if I do it.

They are actual wheels. They came of a e46 3 series.

I already got the new headlights on. I'm putting the black corners on tonight while doing an oil change and I just ordered these tail lights.

The only thing I don't like about painted wheels is the durability. Sure you can repaint them, but it's a pain. Stock is so easy.

Sorry, but I that looks like crap with the rims painted. If it were mine, I'd leave the wheels stock, or save up and find a better looking black after-market rim.

X2 almost, leave the wheels aluminum, they car looks good as is…

Painted the car starts to look like a Rice Burner, unless that is where you want to be.

I agree. It is a clean, good looking car. Start doing things like painting the wheels and it's going to look like a 17 year old's car in my opinion.
