So I got these rims from a 95 celica convertible and slapped em on my 5th gen:

I'm thinking about spray painting them black and leaving the lip silver..
next is tinting the windows and tailights?

any other ideas or inputs would be appreciated.

hey black would look good. i had a 94 gt and picked up my 92 since i was keeping the 92 i liked the wheels off the 94 better so i traded. i have since then powder coated my wheels white and i love it.

ohh okay, well that's why I wanted to paint it black but keep the silver lip so you can tell it's not stock rims

Charcoal with silver lip. Black on a black car=too much black.

There can never be too much black. That's why I use VHT niteshade on my tails!
I agree with not doing black wheels on a black car though. Go with bronze!
