Plastic - black or tan

I saw the plastidip thread and tried the search, but, I'm lazy. Just a quick opinion question. I have a khaki LJ and want to do the rims, but would black or tan look better?

I would do black, I think it would even out the khaki to black ratio lol

I'd say black, unless you are doing a full out military type of stealth look then go with the color contrasts

I'll second the black. I just think it'll look a bit better. I would also have to wonder how close a match the khaki would be to your paint. A few shades off and it might look....well, off. Blacks a lot easier to keep looking clean too, especially with brake dust.

I dunno, I think tan would make it stand out. The only problem would be like was stated above and it was really off from the other "tan". Would be like wearing stripes and plaid. If you go tan I'd love to see the finished product.

Well the nice thing about plastidip is that it's removable , if you do it tan... you can always remove it and start from scratch

Try tan, at least it won't be the cookie cutter jeep look; if that's what your going for. If not, go with the black. If it were me, I would just leave them stock.

Like BigZapYP stated, you are talking about plastidip paint. You can buy one can of each and paint one front wheel black and one rear tan and make your decision. The unwanted color can be easily peeled off.

I say go Khaki. I picked up a set of OEM Ecco rims and painted them Khaki to match my body color. Crappy pics taken in the rain but you get the idea...

I like that khaki, really sets off the look. I also like the black. Thus my conundrum.
Thanks for all the replies. I might have to try both.
