I need to figure out what color to paint the wheels I picked up. They are the 260 exclusive wheels.
Good picture here\/

I need them put on a 86+ wagon. Preferably a gray one. I would definitely like to see gold, silver, maybe flatblack, and whatever else you feel like. I only have gimp and suck at it. Thanks to whoever can do this for me.

Paint a repeating pattern of a better looking wheel on them.

That's cold bro. I'm working on a junkyard only budget. And my wife hates the idea of these in gold on the wagon, so I'm leaning towards that.

Am I not worthy of you photoshopitude? Are your skillzorz too mighty to be used on an underling like I? I know its pretty lame that I don't have a picture of the car they are going on, but there are tons of pics on here. Maybe I'll go take one.

Hell if you are doing a jy budget you should have chosen steelies over those

Black will look like steelies, gold will look persian, silver will look slightly different than the already look. Is pshop even necessary? Blood red that **** son.

maybe do like the old cragars and do the main part of the wheel black but polish the raised sections?
still will look like doodie, but at least a different flavor :lol:

the only way i'd run those wheels on my car would be like this. paint them black, then polished the raised areas that are around the holes in them..that flat lip. does that make sense?

Man you guys are ****in harsh. Just a simple photoshop request. Plenty of people run steelies on here and most are complimented on how they look. But if I want to run "alloy steelies" it will look like ass. That's some BS. I'm murdering these b****es out and rockin em! In the words of Cartman "Screw you guys, I'm going home."

Those wheels CAN look good too.

dont just spray them flat black. flat colors look like poopy on wheels. and they're a total bitch to clean. do satin if you're just going to do that. or go with my non douchebag suggestion (thats a first! haha) if you want to do something that will pop better than just a single color. wheels make the car. every time i see a car with flat painted wheels, no matter what it is, i can't help but think it looks unfinished. just my opinion, of course. i like the wheels...they're a nice change of pace from all the stupid ugly virgos that are rolling around here. just dont mask the coolness of those wheels with crappy flat black..

I think those are great looking wheels, are they that straight? If so, rock as is. Are they from that 260 at PnS?

Well we can put this idea on hold for now. 3 of the wheels were stolen out of my truck last night. I filed a police report and called all the recycling yards in town. Hopefully I will get them back. I can't imagine someone wanted 3 14" Volvo rims for anything other than meth money.

I got a call at 3 from Action Recycling(****ing awesome guys there) saying a guy was there with my wheels and they needed the report number. I gave it to them and left work to rush over there. I pulled up and looked in my truck to see if I had a knife or something to murder them with but had nothing great. As soon as I stepped out i looked at the ground and saw 3 neatly stacked center caps with a V. OOH, that's nice, put them in my truck. All the while I was well aware of the Ford Aspire across the street with the engine running. I went in and a brown haired version of Mikey from American Chopper was walking around. He was on the phone with some tweaker looking guy following him. I over heard the tweaker say something about wheels and was ready to start choking him to death but I just followed them both acting like I needed to talk to "Mikey" also. I knew he was stalling to wait for the cops. I said I had to grab something from my truck and took a voice memo on my phone of the ford aspire plate and description. Just as I finished I saw the tweaker bolting for the car. I started mine up and gave chase. Talk about adrenaline. Hauling ass down alleys and parking lots, over curbs. "Mikey" was also chasing them. I ended up losing them after 2-3 minutes, and mikey lost them shortly after. I called 911 and gave an approximate location, they said they had 2 squad cars on the hunt at the time. I went back to the yard and BS'ed with the guys there for a while and got my wheels back. Talked to a detective on the phone that said he had a hunch where the car might be headed. So they have the plate, copy of ID and a video of the guy clear as day. I hope he is picked up soon. But all in all it was an awesome ending, especially after such a s***ty morning. So back the the wheel color, I'm thinking black or graphite with polished lip and raised lines.

posting in an epic thread :lol:
much win involved in this!!!
i would do graphite against the gold.
black would look a little steelie-ish

Wow, what an awesome story. Glad you got them all back. I say do it like the blue pic, but instead of blue, a darker silver/graphite type dealio, and a polished lip. That would look BOSS.

alexm963
03-17-2011, 10:49 PM
I'm thinking like this, maybe with more gloss.

on my screen that looks too dark, lighter in all places. for sure polished/clearcoated over the raised bits and on the lip.

Update! I finally decided how to paint them. I liked towery's idea of painting a better looking wheel on them. I figured multi-x's would look good.

Haha JK. I picked up a set last night for $80. Tires are junk but the wheels are in awesome shape. No real curb rash. I'm still going to run the 260 exclusives for now because tires are cheaper and I need to get the studs off by the end of the month. But these are a new project.
