My black 1M with painted wheels

Hey guys,

2 weeks ago I've painted the wheels of my black 1M...and I was looking for some diferent color from black/gray painting...and the chosen color was light gold...I've already saw some guys saying that if you want to paint your wheels as an Subaru STI, It's better you buy one first...but I was tired from the same colors black/gray, that looks fantastic too I have to say...well, the results are here...

^^that's not a bad idea! ...or even the Performance side stripes done up in gold theme! I think your 1M would look killer with some Blacklines too.

Like wise.

Anytime I see that combo I think Smokey and the Bandit.

Ive never painted or powder coated a set of wheels before but i am thinking about changing the colour of the wheels on my AW, might seem like a silly question but what happens with the ///M badge on the wheels when they are getting painted or powder coated?

You need a new set of badges. Stu at BMRAutowekes in Sydney stocks them.

If you toned down the goldness a little, as in the smoked silver of the E39 M5 wheels, I think it would really suit it. Kinda like the JPS GP cars of old....
