hey also wanna get some opinions....

bought a set of luv heart rims (killer find/deal on CL).... going to have them blasted and powder coated...

was thinking maybe i would do white... but now im having 2nd thoughts, is it going to look too much like a toy?

what color would you coat them (for use on this red truck)?

i dont usually like chrome but when i do like chrome its usually on red trucks. maybe chrome plated if they arent rusted or pitted badly or a gloss silver metallic finish. what you could also do is buy a couple different colors of plastidip aerosol cans and see which color looks best on your red truck. they sell it at home depot for sure in red white grey and black and maybe lowes also. they also have a ton of colors in aerosol cans on the dyp website https://www.dipyourcar.com

all the ones ive seen or heard of came from the factory white though

oh and pics or they dont exist..... :D

You can powder coat them to look like chrome. NASCAR does not allow chrome wheels but if you look at Waltrips cars they have a powder coat that looks like chrome.

Those look like the set someone was trying to sell for $1000, same condition. What did you pay for them?
