Rims are on

I just put my rims on today. What do you think? I know, I need to paint my brake calipers and take out that rust. What color should I put. Red, yellow or black?

Lookin' good. Nice touch. Yellow if you want it to stand out. Black will match your rims real well and keep it from turning green. thumbsup

please don't paint the calipers yellow - spineyes

- black may blend in too much with the wheels... you need a nice contrast. Of course, I've never seen red calipers on a yellow celi before so I couldn't even venture a guess on that

rims look tight though (yellow and black is a good theme) - thumbsup

Yea, Just what I was thinking. The car already has too much yellow. And to finish the touch I'll get the white and red "Everythingcelica.com" decal

I think blue or green would look pretty cool, they'd stand out and the dirt wouldn't stand out like the yellow

nice rims!

go with either black or red calipers, black if you want it to flow with the rim...red to stand out a bit, and go with your tails thumbsup

EXACTLY what i was thinking. Black is clean but blends in too well...yellow is too wild and would look bad after a week...red..well...no...but silver if it's the right shade would pick up the polished lip and the center cap and lugs etc.

O.k, I've narrow it down to black or polish silver. Do they sell chrome paint? I think that would look nice with the polish lip. What do you think? But black would look clean.
