Best Wheel Paint Effect

Can I get some opinions as to whether anyone likes either the front or back photoshop compared to stock? I would use the stock wheels, not the ones shown in the illustration.
Thanks!

Yea,
Actually it is MS Paint!
I am considering an orange pinstripe on my OEM wheel, with the remainder of the wheel either stock, black, or darkened to titanium.

That's what I was thinking. I like the look of gunmetal better that stock, but with the orange on the edge, didn't know if I should go gloss black or stay with gunmetal for the rest of the wheel.
Yes, my car is VO.
Thanks for your opinion.

So, you would go with gloss black, I would assume?
Nice also!

Actually, no. I stick with my 19" BBS CH-R in gunmetal ("Satin Titanium") with polished stainless steel rim protector lip (silver) (stock included). In my view it takes the VO 1M to the next level: cool and sporty. But, hey, that's only personal taste.

In case you missed my winter set up, see a couple of pictures at http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showp...15&postcount=1

Definitely agree the black with orange outer rim does not bode very well on this car.
I wonder how the orange outer rim and gunmetal would look?
Any thoughts?

Can't say I'm partial to the black wheel trend, lose the effect of the large wheel on a car like this. Can't define the outer rim which spoils it I feel.

Dark looks great if it's high gloss or not completely Black. EG. ZUZU's VO. That looks sensational. Just the right colour so you can still easily define the rim and dark enough to not be a dirty Silver, nicely done.

Couldn't, in all decency recommend the coloured rim either, belongs on Bikes. But having said that, there have been a few rare examples where it has worked. I think when the colour is outrageous and has matching accents on the car, not the whole car.

I agree that the rim does largely depend on the whole package, for example, the colored rim looks great here IMO

Nice car! Liked what they did with the retros (VO touch) a lot.

Agree, that looks quite excellent. Again, the stripe helps to define the outer edge of rim on an otherwise very indistinct mating between the Wheel and tyre when a wheel is matt Black.
