hey everyone,

I recently purchased a set of Evo 7 rims, they have been rerolled and sandblasted now i need to get them painted/powdercoated. Just wondering what you guys thoughts where for a colour.

Im kind of leaning towards silver, but who knows.

here is a pic of the rims and my car, let me know what colour you think would look good

I agree with brad. The normal silver would look the best.

I almost certain that it will be silver.

Don't know how hard it will be getting it colour matched to the center caps though, as they are still the stock silver colour

gun metal with a polished/machined lip

+1. Or black. Now that would look tough.

Silver will look very ordinary/boring.

I wouldn't mind a polished lip but it doesn't really have that much of a lip to polish.

has anyone got any pictures of evo 7 rims on a galant?

There are pics of my car on cvr4 with evo 7 rims, but I don't know of any Galants with them on apart from 'caishanvr4' who is also on cvr4. He has a dark blue facelift Galant.

Go the gun metal or dark chrome, either way your onto the winning combination of class and style. Check out my babies, you'll have to scroll down a bit but maybe it will give you a better idea on how they might look against the black.

Ah good pick up Jarrad, i was tempted by those.

My first reaction was white but perhaps a dark grey?

Shadow Chrome is a chroming process, not paint. You'll need to find someone who can do that. Should be a few places capable of it in any major city, but no promises about the cost ;)

the idea of white is interesting......

I think im going to have to wait till i get the car and can do a decent photoshop effort of the rims in different colours so i can make a better decision
