Maybe... who knows. It's not like it's permanent... I can always repaint them. But I've always liked white wheels.

Re: White Pegs (elpresspl)

I think it's cool. A little flashy, but if you like it that's all that matters. However, they would be MUCH cooler if you actually took the wheels off the car and didn't end up painting the lugs and the valve stem. You can't get lazy with the prep work IMHO. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0">

Not only that, but there is over-spray on the tires, too.

Let's see pics of the whole car. <p>Why would you do it on the car? You can't possibly give them a proper cleaning like that, so that paint is going to be flaking off very soon.

Atleast take off the lugs, and dont overspray.<p>I love white wheels, but you really didn't take the proper amount of time to do this one.

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

OK, for the record. Wheels were taken off from the car, the car was covered because I have a small garage, and didn't wanted to get some overspray on the car. Tires are garbage anyway so I really didn't care if I overspray on them or not. Wheels were prepped correctly IMO. Cleaned and sanded 3 times with different sand paper grit, dried, 3 coats of primer, sanded, dried, additional coat of primer, dried, 3 coats of paint. The lug nuts were painted white but now after I've put them on I know I will repaint (lugs) to a different color.<p>I don't know how you guys could've thought that I would paint the rims mounted on the car?
