    Hey,

    I found a guy selling some GSR rims that were painted purple??? Anyways, he is selling them for cheap, and was wondering what they would look like if i painted them flat black. Any body have any pics, i tried a google image search with no luck.....thanks.

    Why not just leave them purple? I think they would look good black.

    haha, well from what the guy said. They are painted very shitty. I guess someone stole his car and painted it and the rims. Then it was recovered :confused:

    I just figured i can get them powdercoated black, but wanted to know what it would look like.

    Ah, good call, good call. I don't know how I missed that... :huh:

    Anyway...

    Honestly I think blades wouldn't look that good painted or powder-coated black. If they were Fat Fives or the LS Mesh (yes, they did use those on the GS-R in 97) then it might look alright, but I think blades look much better when they're stock, or better yet, polished...

    Yeah thats what i was thinking, and i cant even find a pic to see what it would look like. I might go check them out and see if i can just remove the paint and maybe clean em up. I just thought there would be someone out there with black blades

    Are you sure?

    I think those are what they consider the "mesh" wheels. I always thought the "webs" were the smaller, 14" ones...

    That's according to a thread on Team Integra...

    I don't know it personally makes more sense to me to flip that around and have the one with more surface area called the web and the other called the mesh.
