Default What rims would look good on my Charcoal grey 02 eclipse gt?

What color and brand rims do you guys think would look best on my car? Im not sure what color would match my car. Chrome, Grey, Black, White or ???




This is an example of the color of my car but mine has full body kit and aftermarket things. What rims do you guys think would be best?

I like the stockers. They actually fit the car.

Fix'd. Paint will either flake off from brake heat or flake off from brake dust corroding it off. Or just look dull. Powdercoating doesn't have that issue on a wheel.

Also more resistant to curb rash.

Or if you want to go cheap you can use hi-temp engine paint.

MY concern, beside the dull colors, would be brake dust's effect on engine paint. It could hold the temps, sure, but brake dust is pretty corrosive stuff.

Without the holes next on the spokes by the rim, those are perfect for that car

Ditto i like those would be more fitting with a drop it's just to much clearance on the wheel well. Use duplicolor wheel paint it works great but you need to prep right skuff them with a scotch brite pad over the intire wheel use a good prep spray to ensure the wheel is clean and grease less also a good wet sand would help ensure a good finish. I've had great luck with Duplicolor paints as long as the prep work is correct.
