    looks good, I did that with some wheels I had but you might want to spray a clearcoat on them. make sure you use a satin finish if you decide to otherwise you will get a gloss finish and you will lose the gunmetal look.

    yeah, that looks really good
    but deffinately get a few cans of a good clear coat and do about 4 coats over the top of what you have now so that they stay that way

    otherwise looks good
    how much do those Miata rims weigh? 14"? how wide are they?

    I am going to pick up an extra set of rims in the spring to put some nice performance tires on (not sure if I'm going with Azenis or not though) and I want something that isn't going to add much weight over my uber light HX wheels
    but kind of want to pick up something cheaper even than rota's (maybe used rota's :) )
