Just got a mint set of 17" 10 Spoke SS Wheels real cheap...taking them to get powder coated next week, looking for ideas...here's what I've come up with:

My Cars color scheme is white w/ orange+black accents

High Gloss Black No Lip
High Gloss Black Machined Lip
High Gloss Black Chrome Lip
High Gloss Black Hugger Orange Lip

any ideas on what would look good and not gaudy?

You should post a picture of your car so everyone can re-familiarize themselves with it.
All black my vote.

and im also in favor for black with the orange lip. white would be pretty crazy to get those in, with the orange in it. but im cool with black with either no lip or orange lip

DUDE!!!! go hard and powdercoat them WHITE! and think of what lip to do IMO if your not lazy WHITE is the sh_t. just keep up on them and your cool. Check out other camaros with WHITE rims and it might grow on you.

theres a bad ass white Z28 Camaro with powdercoated ZR1 rims and the car is SICK! and the RIMS set the whole car off and looks NICE. now this guy could add a lil more by doing white powdercoated rim with a BLK lips or just all white.

I cant find a cheap set of these anywhere so im already pretty jealous. You should get them powdercoated black and have orange bowte stickers made for the centercaps

Powdercoat them white, machine the lip and face of the spokes. Orange bowtie in the middle. It'll look like the 1991-1992 Camaro wheels. A buddy of mine has a 92 Z28 with these and they look awesome.

Of course I'm partial to leaving them silver...

I'm leaning towards the powdercoating white, machining the face and highlighting the lip in orange being an option...

to the OP, i was flirting with the idea of PC mine but a deal came up on my powdercoated tt2's. GL! I also wanted to have mine widened

as soon as my tires come in and i get my tt2's on. my ten spokes will be for sale. they have some good curb rash but nothing crazy. PM if interested

x2, I think the way they are is great. Not a fan of black wheels on a white car, however, given those choices: High Gloss Black Machined Lip

No, Just get them professionally shot gloss black. That's what I did, then applied my logo then clear. Cost me $50.

Why thank you. I definitely think you should keep pushing the idea. Either black or white with orange bowties no orange lip though just a solid color.
