Photochop of some rims. What ones?

Hey guys. For some reason I wanted to keep it a secret until I got them but I'd rather have opinions. What do you think:






I usually like 5 spoke and thought I would like the first one but after doing this I like the 5 spoke more. Someone laughed at me because of the color match but I think it looks so good. I was originally going to go with a black with chrome lip but I'm not going to have any chrome anywhere so it would look kind of off. Also, I hate all black rims. They blend in with the tires and most of the time look like you have stock steel rims on it without hubcaps.

Next up, I am going with tint. I was thinking of tinting the tails also and a very light tint on the headlights (or painting the inside black). Someone didn't like that either. But with the red tails they stick out. I then got the idea of painting the calipers red and leaving the tails un-tinted. Here is another quick (bad) chop with some tint on it, just to get the idea. I will have to do another one with some red calipers on it to see if that looks good. If I were to tint the tails I would do the calipers either black or blue.




K, send those suggestions!


P.S. The door guards are coming right off so don't worry about those, haha.

I'm getting mixed reviews on these. A few people don't like the color matching idea. I don't think the chrome lip looks good though. Why is this so hard!

I like the 5 spoke wheels. I think the color match would look good but just not on the lip of the wheel. If you could find a black or machined wheel that you could add matching color inserts that would be BA, in my opinion. I went with a chrome lip rim and ended up liking it, but I had my doubts.
