Ok so I am planning on getting a set of the stock 17" rims and painting them. I cant decide which color would look best on a carbon blue tib... I was thinking black with silver lip, straight black, gunmetal with silver lip, or straight gunmetal. And I was gonna get some badges painted by Anthony/FFF and wanted the outer circle to match which ever I went with...

Thanks for the input!

-Cameron

PS: I mean the outer circle of the wheel caps

Just do straight black. Anythign like a silver/polished lip is so played out its sickening. I did mine flat black on a TIdal Wave blue tib and i love it.

Use to have my car with straight up black stocks. It looks nice man, you wont regret it. I regret getting black with chrome lip..all black makes the car looks aggressive.

i would do either straight gunmetal or the goldish bronze. Every single person on here does the black with crome lip and I think it looks butt.

Paint them in gold or bronze. Please don't be like everyone else and their mother and do black rims.

I've seen 7 Tibs driving around my town and 2 tibs for sale at used car lots. All 9 had black wheels with a polished lip. Sad!
