my 6UL 15x9's were bronze but I noticed more atention to my car so I painted them black. The less atention you get means the less the cops will look at you, If you look like some kid in a civic with a body kit the cops will treat you like one.

This thread rocks...I'm in the same boat(black NA with flower power wheels), and strippin' em down and painting as soon as finals are over.

I'm pretty sure I'm going with black. Have some crappy photoshops if you care to see them.


This guy did a really good job on the gunmetal:

but they didn't look as badass (too light) when I cropped them onto my car. Pics are on laptop at home, will post up if I ever make it home.

alright, all you guys voting bronze need to provide some pics of a black NA with daisies. I couldn't find a good lookin' one when I was debating it a few weeks back.

Paint the spokes satin black, but paint the rim GunMetal, also the removable center cap, paint that gun metal too. Do it now, *****.
