im keeping my fat 5s for winter wheels since they have brand new tires on them, but since they arent in the best of shape i want to fix them up a bit and give em a new coat of paint. keep in mind, this winter when the wheels go back on, THE CAR WILL BE BLACK. so what color/combination do you guys think would look good? if you'd like to photoshop something up for me, feel free to ;)


heres a reference

i agree, unless maybe i could keep the polished lip but in my case my lip has plenty of imperfections already so itd need to be painted regardless.

i was kinda leaning towards gold but idk how thatd look on that wheel

Ive never seen gold fat 5's but i think it would look pretty good on a black car. Cuz...well....gold wheels on black cars look like sex.

I think fat fives would probably come out looking pretty horrid in a true gold color. I'd say leave them how they are.

Too bad about painting that car black. That's the color I'd want an Integra if I got one. :( I knew a guy in high school with a coupe the same color and I was so pissed when he put it up for sale right after I bought a car.

see i was kinda thinking the same thing as you amy about the gold just not looking right, i think bc there is so much wheel on fat 5's (not really "spokes" persay) even tho typically gold wheels on black cars look great imo. if need be ill just repaint them entirely silver bc they DO need it, i was just hoping to do a darker color

If you do anything... make it a little understated. PM Eran and ask him about that "certain color" he wanted to paint his wheels awhile back. He can give you all the info you need and I think it'd look a lot better than gold on those wheels (you said it perfectly... way too much wheel). It'd look good on a black car and it'd help cover up some imperfections probably.

I think this will cover up some imperfections and also give you the color change you seem to want.

My wheels have some curbing but it's been filed down and smoothed out before being painted.

too much bling for me



plus there is curb rash that would be hard to fix and still keep polished
