I just finished painting one of my Rims. Its a dark charcoal color, and the Calipers/Drums will be white. Here's a pic of the Rim off the car. My brother is powder coating so I can't Inflate the tire yet haha. Oh Joy for putting tires on at midnight.

Intersting..I wish the quality of the pics were better. It looks like it was taken under a blacklight

The rims are a Charcoal color. And the Drums/Rotors are a White High Temp. paint that I picked up from Lowes for about 5 bucks. The whole thing only cost 20 to do. I finished it up today. I think it looks pretty bitchen, and I'll try to get some pics of the entire car soon. Its a White 2005 SE.

Back in the day we would put them in an oven at 200 degrees for a couple of hours.

Let us know if it holds up well or starts chipping

Yeah, I thought about powder coating them (we have an oven and a gun and everything like that) But I figured I'd just paint them to see if I really did like them. Once the start chipping and stuff like that, then I'll just powder coat them and make it permanent.

Haha thanks, when I get the time i'll try and get some nice pics of it. If I can find some blacklight underglows for my wheel wells, I think it would make the white look bad ass.

Here are some pics of the rims finally. My next mod will be flat black paint on the back and the white trim pieces all the way around the car.










The windows just look tinted haha
