Purple Rims? or Black?

I really want to get my rims painted or powdercoated soon, the stock ones. I would love purple, because of course the car is purple and im a purple freak but i m afraid it will look tacky.... but SO MANY people have black rims....

SO my question is.... purple, black, or black and purple in some combination?

lmao i feel you on that one. Yea like i said its YOUR car and its YOUR style. YOU do what YOU feel is right. But really i think the black would really make it look good. Especially like what was said before, with the black tints. Either way good luck on the decision

I looked at buying a leftover 04 Cosmos new but the dealer wouldn't let me test drive it because 'couldn't afford it' even though they didn't run my credit or know that I had unlimited OT at my old job and had a crap load saved up. I ended up buying a different car somewhere else and the finally got a goat a few years later... but about 1/2 the price.

I woudln't do black though. I'd personally look into a purple metallic. A buddy of mine got it done in his STi. I gotta find the link on another forum but he has them for sale. They look literally like a purple chrome. http://www.tristatetuners.com/forum/...ad.php?t=99703

I'd of course do a different shade but you get the idea. The pics do no justice though.

purple chrome sounds great. I want a dark purple, not like neon in your face purple... I would love a purple that looks almost black, kinda like the car, you know? just something to set her apart.

It can be done. The process he had his wheels powercoated is what gives it the chrome look but I'm sure a color could me mixed to your liking.
