Default painted my stock wheels

used the same aluminum color to redo the whole wheel and remove all the scratches and road rash and give them a "new" look, then i painted the center caps the same color as the n20 bottle... its a lil more red then the pics let on, bad light

im not big on appearance stuff, love the stock wheels lol, so this is a big step for me

Looks good, but I'm not really feeling the center caps. I like the color but it looks out of place on the silver. Good job though.

thanks, im sure everyone wont like it, but it is another way to dress up your stock wheels for fairly cheap and just a day of work or so... my friend doesn't like the center caps.. i believe hes going to leave the center caps the same and do the rest of the wheel...

Nice work. Center cap idea is a no go.

Nice job on the wheel, but I too concur about the center cap. If you really want the MMM color on the cap I'd do just the little center dimple on the cap.
