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.

Graphite, black or a "hyper black"

forget about the wheels. Leave them silver and instead colormatch your trim

Personally I like the contrast with the black trim, as long as it is not weathered.
I agree with the hyper black or leave them silver.

Was flash green only 2004?

Graphite, black or a "hyper black" would go with with FG, IMO.

I think anything else would look hideous!!!

Agreed.

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.

Not usually my thing but what about white?

I tried to imagine what it would look like with white.. I don't think I like the color combo.

I actually like the black and FG combo. Maybe I'm

I think I agree with you on that one. 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
.

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 http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Okay, did some editing on my own. Tinted tails too or is that too much?

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).
