So a found a local place that powdercoats rims. now the question is what color?

i was originally thinking black like amars but with a red ring on it ( like the r6 rims)
http://www.tradenote.net/images/users/000/101/652/products_images/2005_Yamaha_Yzfr6l_R6_Yzf_R.jpg

but then colors like bronze, white and pink came into mind.. so can anyone photoshop my rims black, bronze or any color they think would look cool ( pink and purple and lime green are acceptable:rofl:)

they all look good except the pinky's:lol: black with the red lip looks good cuz it matches ur seats, if u went with a not metallic green it wouldn't look bad. Something along this line. Car has somewhat similar paint as well

Resizing it isn't useful unless you edit your original post and take out the big version. ;-)

thats what I'm leaning towards..

but i need to get the car running first :grrr:

and now i'm wondering whether or not i should be spending the money into lowering springs vs cosmetics... but isn't Sport springs + Bilstein HD's a bad combo???

the HDs are already really rough with my stock springs:nod:

If you're feeling frisky get some 205/55s, 215/55s, or 225/50s. And make sure you get QUALITY, high performance tires. Not crap. They should hold up well enough.

And, why the hell are you concerned with wheel color when your car is trying to go offroad? I can't believe any import drivers let you get anywhere near them with that thing. If you're already complaining about the stiffness of the car, cut 2 coils off all around and call it good. If you have anywhere near as much rake as you do in the pictures, maybe only cut 1.5 coils off the front of the car. But seriously, are you using wagon overloads in the back or something? :wtf:

I'm using 740 wagon springs on the rear, and the front is higher now ( relative to the picture) because i have HD's in it and 91 740 springs in them:lol:
