Wheel Directory: OEM Wheels Painted Gold/Bronze




Haven't got much of a chance to snap very many photos(Will update tomorrow with pics that actually show the gold hue). These wheels are my spares, but had to get rid of what I feel is a horrible 2 tone scheme.

But anyways, had some free time & space around a friends paint shop to prep & spray em. Original plan was to actually shoot with a mixed paint in the booth, but myself running off 2 hours of sleep didn't want to stick around for all that extra cure time. So I found some decent stuff that came in a can that cures good enough and did it the "ghetto way"

*cell pics

Because cars always look cooler like this? lol




Total time: 4 hours 15 mins from jacking to rolling it out; 2 of us prepping/painting. Shot 3 coats of color on each wheel, no clear. Used about 1 and a half cans, IF that... forgot what exact paint I used but I'll grab it in the morning.

Thanks to my friend Nick for being great at body work/paint wheels are pretty flawless, and providing the extra resources that weren't needed but did make the process a hell of a lot faster.

Good job. Every time I see one of these pics of a solid paint job on the stock rims, I'm impressed. The stock rims are a nice design, IMO. The two tone paint, on the other hand, detracts from the design a bit.

I was about the say the same thing. I too like the stock wheels, but after seeing them in solid colors (and some plasti-dipped), I think they look even better as 1 color.

I love gold wheels on a white car too

Subaru has a long history of designing wheels that look good in any color BUT the one they come in. The simple WRX 16" wheels are a great example:

Blah:


Then pick any color and:

^ I agree. Everyone does their stock wheels in silver though. I use some painted stock Subaru wheels as my winter set and they're great!

Took some pics... without flash and with flash comparisons. Please excuse the water marks, I drove through a puddle earlier today.
