Should I paint my rims.

Hey guys looking for an opinion. Do you guys think it would look good if I painted my rims black? Just making sure it wouldn't looks stupid with the spice interior. I'll probably do plastidip to see if I like it.

If you're not sure ... plastidip one wheel and then decide

If you like it go ahead and paint the rest. If not, peel off the dip.

Doin the door handles will clean it up very nicely, black looks allot better than chrome IMO. While your doin those look into some black grill inserts and plasti-dip the headlight bessles or just get new black ones, I've seen that on a couple other white jeeps and it adds effect to the front end.

I was thinking about doing that exactly. I figured I could start off with the handles and accesories and work my way towards turning a lot of things black. White and black jeeps do look nice

Yup start small to make sure you like it then work up to the bigger stuff. I'm doin the same thing, I've done the grill inserts just have to to the headlight bezels. Btw with plasti-dip I would suggest doing it when it gets significantly warm out and wait for it to finish drying or you'll get really frusterated. Good Lookin jeep btw, are those 31's?

Yeah Im just getting together all my ideas for the warmer weather. It needs to get here faster! Yeah those are 31's. No lift or anything of any sorts. Yeah I play on doing the handles, hood latches, grill, headlight, and possibly the raised part of my hood if I like it all. The best part is if I dont like it i just peel it off. I had someone do some photoshop for me. What do y'all think?
