As for color matching stuff on my car to the wheels- not a huge fan of that, as its kinda rice. I might do a front emblem after I do my grill mod

Obviously they aren't the same on a physical level. Are you dense? Or do you believe that I am?



The point I'm trying to make is that you need to CHANGE THE COLOR of other things on the car to match, otherwise I think it just looks out of place.

Painted my wheels....

Watch your mouth- saying plastic dip is "one in the same" is being dense. Of course it's changing the color, but it's like saying finger painting is as good as fine art.
I'm loving the color on the wheels- def not boring as I've seen most wheels

I'm actually loving the color- didn't want to go red or blue like most, but wanted something to pop. Btw- love your build man

Appreciated!!

It certainly pops, no doubt about that. Just isnt a colour i would pick for your paint colour. On a white or black car the colour would work much better IMO.

@Nihilus & @Hoyta you two play nice

Definitely agree with these looking a ton better against a white car.
