    your wheels look really nice the way you have them now IMO. i'd go with the exhaust/reflash.

    The painted stockers look good. Wheels were one of the last things I did on my car. Get the power first. You won't regret it.

    3 cans of duplicolor spray paint FTW!! i dont remember what the color code for the paint was, but its the closest i could find to gunmetal. just clean the rim and lay it flat. poke 3x5 index cards all the way around the rim and spray. thanks for the comments on the wheels btw

    go with stage 2, you'll enjoy it a lot more than some new wheels.

    did you do any surface prep work? or just clean real well?


    I fuggin LOVE the way your wheels turn out.....Have been kicking around the idea of gunmetal on my CGM, but hadnt seen a pic until yours

    also, did you spay the entire inside of the wheel as well? seems like that'd be the best idea..

    thanks bro, naw i didnt even prep the wheels. just a real good cleaning poke 3x5 index cards all the was around the tire and started painting. yeah i painted the inside also. umm the only big issue with painting your wheels are the rock chips. i just got my new wheels so my stockers are sitting in my garage. they are 5zigen proracer GN+ in 17x7.5
