    REfinishing rims but what color?

    Well i came aross these rims for free. Now i gotta get them into shape. They are suffering from poor tire choices from a previous BMW owner that decided that 215s and 235s are ok on 9.5" and 10" wide rims lol
    Anyway, was wondering what colors i should go with.
    1 - Bright Silver like they are now, just repainted

    2 - All Black

    3 - Black with Machined lip (most likey painted)





    What do ya'll think?

    Go black with the machined lip. Those wheels should look great that way.

    Quick question while my fingers are resting and in pain from sanding. Im looking to get good tires for these rims. 9.5" fronts and 10" rears. SO obviously 275/40s up front.
    now im debating on what to put on the rears. thinking 295/35r17s

    Oh and where can i get firebird stickers for my center caps?

    Oh and these rims are Rondell 58s. Apparently an expensive and highly popular BMW aftermarket rims thats OEM optioned somtimes. AND a big F-body crowd pleaser. I looked it up in Google and got abunch of hits in F-body forums. Even 3rd gen ones.

    And did more sanding on the 2nd rims today. still got more to go lol

    lol what you dont like my black hood
    I just cant decide which to do. Silver would be soooo much easier. as of now im wondering if i should polish the lip or paint it silver. Polishing would be soo much work but it would look AMazing.

    Keep the black hood! Maybe do the decklid and top too. Nice custom look from back in the day.

    Black Chrome would be sick!!

    Or a Powdered coated gloss black would be nice. Red Lip with black spokes may be kinda ricey.
