Wheels have a lot of scars that I've been thinking about trying to fix myself. Should I go ahead and paint my wheels a different color while I'm at it? What color. If someone could photo shop this pic I found online.<p> <IMG SRC="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3b/Volvo_S60_R_001.JPG" BORDER="0">

Re: Bored. Should I paint pegs on FGM? (o2k)

Graphite, black or a "hyper black" would go with with FG, IMO. <p>I think anything else would look hideous!!!

I agree, go with the hyper black and the black trim looks real nice with the FG.<p>The FG color was available from 04-05 just like the sonic blue is available for 06-07.

Re: Bored. Should I paint pegs on FGM? (Sue Esponte)

Thanks everyone. I was originally thinking something like gunmetal grey with FG. Looks like most of you have a similar idea. I'm going to try and work with photoshop and see what I like.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Sue Esponte</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Not usually my thing but what about white?</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I tried to imagine what it would look like with white..

I think color match might be too much FG and the black trim breaks it up nicely. With the black trim I think black pegs would be hawt but I'm biased <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">.<p>I know some have got some real nice results with rattle can on Pegs but I got mine powder coated and I definitely don't regret it...they came out really nice. Good luck on what ever you decide <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Okay, did some editing on my own. Tinted tails too or is that too much?<br> <IMG SRC="http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/8439/volvos60r0012.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/5308/volvos60r0011.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (Rues R)

tinted tails are too dark, perhaps a lil lighter?<p>the wheels do look nice on there in that color, the gun metal would probably look better in person though.

That FG looks sick! Gold and FG clash a bit IMO. Tinted tails would look good but I'd suggest a very light tint.

Re: (Chilled Man)

Wheels look good, tails are too dark. A lighter tint would be cool, though I do like un-molested tails, (out of context this sounds creepy).
