    Custom Wheel Q's

    I really like the Enkei RPF1's but I want a polished or silver lip on the gold or black wheel and obviously they don't make those so what is the better option to do?

    Buy the wheels and have a professional polish the lip and outer edge?

    buy the wheels and have them stripped and powder coated with the lip and outer edge being silver?

    Here is a quick picture I edited on my computer of the gold with the silver or polished lip.

    Meh. Not a fan of polished lips and I think that would look goofy on a black car. However, if you must, I'd go get them powder coated. They will hold up a whole lot better in Iowa where the weather is less than nice.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    I plan on using the stockers for winter, and the enkei's for summer so they wouldn't see salt and snow. I like the black with a polished lip better but with the program I have it was easier to edit the gold. I think the black would look better on my black car...I don't like all black wheels with no separation between the tire and wheel. The polished lip gives it a nice separation IMO
