I dont think it is half bad matches the top a little bit, and worst comes to worst you can always go back to gun metal.

Haha I was right, the bronze looks badass on white... I'm assuming it is just paint right? What kind of prep work and type of paint did you use?

I would asume a light sand, either a high temp paint or a regular paint with a high temp clear coat.

appreciate the comments fellas... well since they were gunmetal, I used 400grit sand paper and scratched them up pretty good, then cleaned them.. let dry for a while and I had gotten wheel paint from autozone, like 5 dollars a can so i got two cans of bronze and two cans of clear coat... painted them or what not about 3 coats of bronze... and then layered on the clear coat until the wheel shined white from so much of it... and let dry

Well they turned out very nice... did you scratch up your lugnuts when you tightened them down? I just now realized that you sprayed the lugnuts too.
