It took me a while, but the stock wheel treatment wasn't cutting it. I decided to paint my wheel, but I also polished the lip to give it the contrast that I wanted. I'm very pleased with the way they turned out. Now here's the pic's (I'm also waiting for the lowering bones from Jason)

Duuude, I dig the polished piece.   Looks great :bigthumbsup:  I considered doing mine like that, but left the just the very far outside of the wheel exposed.

I used paint remover for the majority of the paint, and what the paint remover didn't attack, I took off with a scrotch brite wheels, then mother's metal polisher. I'm glad for the good reviews, now I got to let my arms rest a few days from all of that stroking (wheel polishing ;)).
I can't wait for Jasons bones, then it will have an awesome look.
A couple of days of labor is cheaper than chroming, and more unique plus it matches my 400+hp Z28 :D

Like the look, and your bike will prove once and for all, without a doubt, Black is the fastest color. 'cause now you don't even have those pesky silver wheels. :joke: :clap2:
