So the other day I was looking at matte black m5 rims comparing to the stock ones. I liked both but I didn't want to dedicate to painting it completely and not like how it turned out. I decided it would look good to create a mix between the two and see how she looked.

I took the rims to a local paint shop and told them what I wanted. When I came to pick it up, this is how my beast's rims turned out!
(I also plastidipped the lip of them myself after i got them back.)

Tell me what you think!

I personally do not car for the two colored rims, I think a single color, dark rim (black or gunmetal) would look best on your Beast. I've got a Sterling Gray and experimented with a gunmetal spray can to see how I like it before I spent the money on powder coating. I'm currently shopping around for a quality powder coat shop in the area.

I dont think it looks horrible, but it is messing with a good design in color and style.
The spokes on those wheels are designed to flow out to the outer lip in one streaming motion. Coloring it 2 tone breaks that apart and makes the face look smaller than it is.

Perfect way to ruin the shadow chrome finish, sorry not my cup of tea.
