So some of you guys know I have Mustang five spokes on my SC.

They scream Mustang obviously. I have thought about painting the spokes black and polishing the lip more.

I did a crappy p-shop of it, with the old for comparison.

What do you think?

Might paint the center cap that pops out aluminum or the pretend "chrome" paint that Duplicolor sells to offset a little bit.

Go for it, it will put less emphasis on the spokes which give it the mustang look.

it was silver to begin with..the 2nd pic is the original. the black is what he was thinking of doing it. i think the black makes them look smaller...

I agree that the black makes the rims look smaller, but the black looks much better.

They're obiously going to look like Mustang rims either way. If you like the black color, then go for it.

P.S.
You're missing a lug nut. :p

No Mario I actually just had a silver lug nut on there...the rest are chrome. I ended up finding my last chrome one the next day.


I don't know if it really does look that much smaller though...hmm.


I can always change it back...lol

I like them just how they are. Maybe paint them a darker shade gunmetal (like I had on my old saab)

The black with the polished lip looks best.

Perhaps black with the red trim, like those "time attack" versions? Just a thought.
