    Painting the volks

    I curbed one of my rims and the other got owned by a pot hole so I was thinking about painting them because its impossible to fix the anodized bronze finish.

    Can you guys photoshop different colors that would look good on wrb? I was thinking the prodrive anthracite would look good.

    I actually thought about that. Black on black looks good, silver on silver looks good, so logically blue on blue should look good. Anyway, it would probably look weird because blue isn't a traditional rim color, I'm looking for more like a darkish gray or maybe silver?

    Those look pretty cool, do you have a picture of them on a car or a better picture of the color?

    i think you SHOULD: save up and just buy replacements.

    i think you SHOULDN'T: paint them blue

    painting them dark would be ok, but kind of a shame since they'll lose their Volk bling.

    p.s. i also think you SHOULD: be more careful with those pretty wheels

    Yeah I got them a little after I got the car so I wasn't really used to parking it and such. I might just buy some replacements, but they are pricey.

    Normally I'd agree with everyone about not painting Volks...but if he's damaged them and it'd be too hard to match the bronze...I totally support it
