Here is a pic of what got done today. The place is repainting my center caps for me since they did not settle right though. What do all of you think?

660? damn thats too much i would've saved another 500 for some vossens or something personally i think its too dull not glossy or black enough for my taste. Maybe a closer up pic would be easier to see but im actually planning on painting my oem rims glossy black kinda skeptical about it, but im getting them done for 300 and brake calipers red for another 70. back to ur rims i just think they look like a dirty gray no offense.. maybe if u hit the chrome trim around the windows with some matte black plasti dip or something to even it out. But as long as ur happy thats all that matters

I was considering getting some vossens but with the rims I liked along with new tires it would have run close to 2,500-3k

damn yea 2500 is way too much i guess since u looked at it that way it makes sense. but there are some pretty nice rims for 800 or less or even gloss painted rims in my opinion look half decent.
