Thread: Painting my wheels

    Painting my wheels

    Hi. I've got a set of bbs rm on a red Corrado. I want to paint the rim on them so I don't have to Polish em. The car is a Daily runner so it's a pain in the ass to keep on top of them. Any Suggestions on what Colour to do them. The Centre are black. Thanks everyone.

    might be the worse thing to do... BBS pick up lots of stone chips on the lips so they would look chipped after the first outing... I had them on the caddy and was fed up of smoothing the chips out...

    If its protection you're after then have you thought about stainless lips

    I would say silver lip with black center and red head screws then if there is any chips they won't stand out and they look kind of standard but with a twist

    Yes I would agree with that, red bolts would look nice.
