    I got my wheels back from the painter and finished up the Calipers too. I am not sure if I should keep the red or switch it to black. Any thoughts?:tup::tdown:

    Wow, the rims came out great! Love the color. I think red would look nice if you had some better looking calipers but since they're stock, I'd paint it black.

    Perfect choice on painting. Powdercoating sucks. I did it and regret it. What it cost you to paint the rims?

    Rims look great and I think with the stock brakes I would go black or silver calipers. If you had BBK then red would be the choice.

    It ended up being about 300. that includes the mounting and balancing. Powder would have ended up being about 450+ after all the mounting and balancing. I am really happy with the turn out.

    Your rims really good. Nice choice. As for the calipers, +1 for silver.

    Wheels came out great. Nice color. I'm going to get my wheels painted soon. Hopefully this week... I would go with the silver on the calipers.:tup:

    match the caliper with the wheels if you can, wheels look awful, what's up with that? :tongue (2):
     
  13. Wheels look good, I wonder what they would have looked like the same color as the body...

    OEM painted calipers in red are not my style, but its not my ride.

    I actually like the way it is now, but I'm sure I would also like it in black or silver. Silver is pretty much the OEM color so I'd probably go with black if you are going through with a re-paint.

    Maybe sleep on it for a couple weeks? I've made mods that gave me some mod remorse immediately after, but then after a while that feeling went away and I like them just fine. Looking at your ride, I don't think you need to change anything. The body color with the custom painted wheels and calipers is unique, personalized and looks good.
