    Input on Painting my Winter BMW Style 44s Another Color

    I am running Style 44s this winter, with 225/45/17 Dunlop Wintersport 3Ds. Anyway, since my car is in the shop, they aren't even mounted yet. I picked up a spray gun for some interior projects, and since it works very well I'm thinking about changing my wheel color. I have a silver grey sedan, 30% tint, black splitters, etc. I'd like to change the wheel color to something different but I don't know what color to do.

    Cliffs: Any creative ideas for wheel color on a SG sedan?

    I personally think another wheel would be in order. 44's won't look good in any color, IMO.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    They're for snow tires; I think the 44s look decent. I'll probably be running 15mm front/17.5mm rear spacers too. I do like the idea of bronze or matte gold, and I'm not opposed to really funky colors but I'm having difficulty picturing my car with gold wheels.

    Have any pictures with the 44's on? Someone here could probably do a photoshop if you ask. Personally, I think matte gold would look nice

    I do but I can't find them; I can Photoshop if I have color ideas. I'll try gold.
