    Default Murdered out my winter wheels....

    So I finally got bored of my E39 M5 rep winter wheels on the X, so I decided to paint 'em flat black. I decided against keeping the lip silver, mainly because I was too lazy to mask them off and too cheap to buy another can of paint haha.

    Opinions? Should I have kept the lip silver?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    yeah I was going to just leave the outer surface of the lip silver, but it would've been half-assed since I didn't want to spend the hours masking off the inner part of the lip.... I just don't have the patience when it comes to masking off stuff properly haha

    p.s. anyone wanna mask off the lips for me for a fee

    or does anyone want to do a quick PS on the wheels with a silver lip

    I like the flat-black on that rim design. If it was a different style of rim, silver lip may look better.

    Pics look gangster and probably better in person.

    The paint is going to start to come off with all the rocks hitting it. Happened to me a few years back.

    all black is way better.

    chrome lip w/ black center always gives me the assumption of cheap wheels

    e39 m5 reps are good winter wheels, besides cleaning them.

    Looking gangster. Straight N.E style.
