What do you think of this color combo?

I have the lighter silver ranger with a fairly gloss black canopy and the flat black bumpers. I was thinking of painting my wheels black with Duplicolor Engine Enamel in Gloss black (seen pics on this site). You guys think it will look good with the other two shades of black since they will all be slightly different? Also I have the 7 spoke wheel with the big plastic cap in the middle, think that will look ok? Thanks!

Sorry i didnt reply to your pm. They were starting to chip so i sprayed them with truck bed liner. If i had to do it over again i would do it with Rustoleum semi glosswith Amazon.com: Rust-Oleum 239107 Professional Spray Paint, Semi-Gloss Black, 15-Ounce: Home Improvement or better yet VHT epoxy paint this stuff lays down really smooth and has super nice finish VHT Epoxy All Weather Paint.

there is a picture on my origianl post at the top now. thanks for the reply on the diffrent paints and what happend to yours. im notlooking for a gloss finish, moreso what your looked like before, which of the paints you recommended would be best do you figure? anybody else with input would be appreciated, i want a more bad *** look but i have no money :)

and before anybody comments on the gayness of the canopy, I know but i need it to move soon. after that i will be getting a cab high colormatched one.

I think painting the wheels would be alright, BUT you'd have to repaint the bumpers to match. Def do that.

It might not look too bad. From the pic i cant tell what is glossy or not. I say go for it. Those wheels look good in black.

yeah the camper is lame but i need it for its size right now. like i said it will be a color matched cab high one eventually, or once I dont need it I will probably take it off, as I think trucks look better w/o a canopy. Anybody have a pic of these wheels painted?
