    I ordered a set of blades for my eg red hatch but i dont want to leave them chrome. I'm thinking of maybe painting them a gold or bronze to match the stock red but I'm always thinking of some bright color, like a color you dont see too often. Any ideas? I'm looking for something that'll match the red but still stand out.

    White, black, gunmetal, or polished aluminum should be, IMO, the only colors you can purchase rims in. They go with every paint scheme, no matter what you have.

    well, if they're beat to hell then go ahead and paint them.. i'd do it in Gun Metal though.. they'd look like ITR wheels in a way
