Had my wheels powder coated liquid black. They started life as the MRR GT5's with a polished lip, I painted them black last year but it didn't hold up that well.

Had them blasted and coated. They look like new now.

Need to get new caps and I'll probably do a Pontiac arrow on them.

I also have to bring in the rivets.

What do you guys think? Black rivets or the Chrome rivet to give the wheel a little pop?

Or I could leave the rivets out since the hole is blind :pir_flag:

They look good!!! I suggest the chrome/silver/polished rivets. It'll break up all that black.

Nice work, they look good! I say 86 the rivets and go with some chrome lugs. If you are anything like me I have a little chrome left on the top window trim so the chrome lugs pop good with black.

Look at my sig pic. I have some chrome left around my door handles and my rear badges. LOL. That's about it.

I have both black and chome lugs so I can do either...

My goal is yellow CTS-V calipers sitting behind these wheels...

I think it's going to look killer.

Looks good!

Rivets, not sure, I kinda like them all black. You could match the calipers, but that is risky.

I'm not a fan of wheels with more than one color on them. Keep them all black.

I vote chrome lugs if you still want some contrast. No rivets though...
They are going to look great with the yellow six pistons behind em.
