Lightbulb Should I paint my wheels?

I've been kicking around the idea since the day I got my blazer. Should I paint my wheels black? And if so, should they be flat or gloss? I think I would do some bare metal highlights somewhere...I'm open to ideas. I saw this pic on Steinbruchsoldat's build thread:


Here's mine:


So what do you think? I tried to start a poll on this...but I couldn't figure it out lol

i like my wheels better painted...i went with flat..if i had to do again i would do gloss.
i also left the outer ring of the wheel alum...sort of an accent.
you should photochop them and kick a couple ideas around..i do like Steinbruchsoldat's
wheels...then again there isnt much of anything he has done that i dont like to be honest.

I bought all the stuff I need to do my wheels a while back and now can't decide whether I want to do it or not

I like the flat black better. You can try photoshopping different ideas with your wheels. If you don't photoshop, post it in the chop shop. I have about a half dozen different versions of mine that I might do if I stop being chicken and just do it

I was thinking about reversing the paint / metal scheme on my wheels currently.

I was bored.

#1 Reversed:



#2 All black:



#3 Black, except for outer rim:



I'm partial to #3, personally. It's what I had in mind for mine, except my wheels are different.

I prefer the all flat but the polished outer lip would look great with your truck.

Here are some pics I found of them

Yeah Id say black out centers and leave the outer ring polished if you were gonna paint them.
