Ok, I pulled a picture of some stocker rims off Google Images, and I had someone photoshop it for me to see how the two tone with gold would look. What do you guys think??

first of all those are L-type wheels, so they dont have the same dish as the p-types. secondly if you want to do a gold hole please dear god use a dark gold more like a bronze. Bright spray painted metallic gold looks HORRIBLE on wheels imho.

no, the L-types are 15x6 with a (I think) 0 offset. L-types are 14x7 with a -8 offset and the dish is deeper.

also that chop is wrong. The spokes are supposed to have a black line in them but the face is still polished inside that line. The transition to cast doesnt happen until the inner face of the opening. The guy who chopped that for you painted that line so they look REALLY funny that way. Look at the picture of my polished wheels and you will see what Im talking about:

Ah. I like the black stripe... It could be the dividing line between the machined and the gold. or get a pinstriping brush and do the stripes in a different color

the inside of that line is part of the face. I suppose you could use it as a dividing line, but...yuck! :P

here is a decent PS for you:
