Default Painted my wheels (pics)

Hey guys, so I finally got around to painting my rims. It took 2 coats of primer, 3 of paint, and 3 of clear, and they turned out great! Tell me what you think.

OH EM GEE LASER RED WITH BLACK WHEELS! I LIKE IT haha

While you were doing the wheels, you should have painted the hubs of the rotors as well so that the rust color doesnt stare at your face when you look at it.

What is that, a satin finish?

I like them alot, those stock style wheels are actually one of my favorite wheel styles. I had a pair of em powdercoated white on my car before i got the deep dish white cobra
Rs with polished lip. You can still see them in my sig.

I know, its like the most uncommon color combination.

Good idea with the rotors, I may do that soon. Its actually semi-gloss engine enamel.
