Orange might look cool on a blue!

How much are you paying if you dont mind me askin? I'm wanting to have mine done black but dont know whether to do it myself or not

30 a wheel, after taking them off tonight and looking at how many knooks and crannys I would have to clean and sand before I can paint, I just decided to get someone else to do it! My painting skill aren't great so may aswell do it properly! My van is now on blocks though :(

There is a place in Birmingham that powder coat them for 30 quid a wheel .

Longer lasting than paint but not as many colours available .

Definately black, partly biased because I love black wheels but do think they look cool on dark vans especially if you have a polished lip on them too! :ILU:

Ive got a dark blue Kombi and im happy with a nice silver .
In my opinion ,dont go with a dark colour especially black.:no:no

Something bright is the way to go .

Look at team blue vans maybe you might see something youll like .
