Lightbulb Stealth Wheels -Poll- Smoke Gray or Black

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna paint my nismo rims this weekend or next weekend, depending on time issues.

I was just wondering, on my dark blue truck... which would look better, blacked out rims or smoke grayed out rims.


Either color i do it with, its still gonna be bedliner spraypaint.
So i ask: or

Smoke them... Bedliner MIGHT not last if you are rough on the truck (depending on bedliner) and it could also cause some balance problems if it was un-evenly coated. IMO smoke or black.

Thought it was a great idea, and might hold up better. Balance could be an issue. And apparently someone lost 2 lugs on an X from bedlining the rims. The bedliner apparently is too rubbery too torque the lugs down... Maybe I'll just paint them...

x2, I think you might run into problems with the bedliner due to its weight, plus it will be much more difficult to touch up or refinish at a later time. IMO go gray with paint.
