Painting Rims...What Color?
 
So i have access to a professional painter at my place of work, who is willing to paint my rims for only the cost of materials. Fuck yes.

The rims are 17x7 ADR GT-Sport in white...

My idea is this...

High-Gloss Black w/blue pin-stripe along the lip...the blue stripe will most likely be a lighter shade, somewhat like my car, in metallic.

Like this...http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/...zo8hulblk4.jpg

Here is a couple current pics of my CB for reference:

Please and thank you. :tu:

oneoffaccord 09-30-2011 06:47 AM

DirtyBird33 09-30-2011 07:17 AM

I would say Gloss Black w/Blue Pin-Stripe or gunmetal

JoshM 09-30-2011 08:09 AM

Gunmetal, fo sho.

Black with the stripe or hyper silver.

How about lime green or bright orange? They'd almost look like a set of Volks. Burnt copper could look really nice with your blue too. I did the wheels on my Mazda3 in that colour.

Definitely NOT a fan of orange...but thanks for your opinion/advice! And lime green really isn't my thing unless my CB was black...


Would any of you crazy photo-shop kidz care to edit my pix to show examples of the selections available in the poll?

That would be totally awesome and greatly appreciated. :tu:

I like the white as-is, but...

Have you ever seen the NSX-R Championship White color? If you're going to paint it, I really say go for that color.

But I think I've got it.

Gunmetal or bronze for the wheels, with a red body molding pinstripe.

islandhopper 09-30-2011 10:24 PM

It seems as though white is a real winner with a few of you guys...

Don't get me wrong...i like white...i like white on these rims...but im ready for something new and i'd like to keep the darker theme going. I've pretty much made up my mind. But all of your opinions are appreciated. :tu:

Yes! Ideas are why i created this thread! I appreciate everyone helping me to get the creative juices flowing.

BTW I have the ENTIRE library of OEM Honda Paints to choose from...so if something isn't listed, throw it out there!

I thought maybe you had a particular ride or rim in mind...

Just googling 'hyper silver' doesn't really give me a good idea about what you mean. Some of the hits aren't even the same shade of silver.

But thanks for the help anyways...i found a few examples i like...but they look very similar to gunmetal. :shrug:
