    I've decided that I'm going to paint my stock wheels. I don't have the budget for buying a nice set of rims so that's out of the question. I would like to have something a little different than others, but it's not the end of the world.

    I spent a few minutes mocking up a few choices in PS this afternoon. I'm leaning towards the first choice (with the exposed lip) but the second one could be neat, too. The third one is my least favorite option, but I thought it important to see all my choices. I'll probably put the small decal on whichever choice I go with...and I may powdercoat the calipers, too.

    Anyway...if you care to weigh in and let me know which you like better, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks everyone. I'm still not crazy about number three...maybe I'll do one up in plastidip to see how it looks IRL.

    if you can pull it off cleanly, third one looks the best in my opinion...
    what are you planning on using to paint them?

    I'll most likely mock it up with plastidip to be quick and in case the process isn't as smooth as it should be. We'll go from there, but I'll most likely rattle can and clear coat them.

    Don't know...I don't Offroad, so I'm not worried about serious wear and tear. I plan on good prep, too...We'll see I suppose!
