ID:	143649. I have a '11 WRX Hatch RED. I have made the side emblems black already along with red/ black front/rear emblems. Car is also 20% tinted around.

    I am thinking black rims but gold intrigues me. What do you guys think?!?! I know there is a search feature but I wanted to make a "poll" on what you all think!

    Ok go.... Black or gold!!

    CHIVE ON!!

    I'm going to do the VHT engine enamel.

    I'm doing it in the process of the thread "paint rims for $60".
    Seems like it will weather the seasons a little better. Eventually I will powder coat.

    White could be interesting.

    That was me 2 years ago but my car see a lot of miles so i gets a little more abuse from the road.
    If you paint them take the time to sand and prime them a few times. Also make sure you let the paint cure for a day.
    The VHT is a nicer color since it a little darker then the Grimmspeed gold I think It would look good with the red. While you have the wheels off paint the calipers.
    At times I wish I plasti dipped them wheels a lot easier but if I had the choice I would powder coat them.

    Great info, thanks! That link was good to look at too! I like the suggestion you had with the calipers too.

    Honestly i think both would look good. Cant go wrong with black on a read car. And I have a friend who had a 06/07 wrx with gold xxr 522 wheels on it. I thought it would look terrible, but i really liked it once i saw it in person. Now red on gold looks sexy to me. Gold got my vote!
