Default Mild Mod: painted stock steel wheels



I personally despise wheelcovers and hate when the underlying steel wheels start to discolor and rust. So, I did a quick clean on the wheels and sprayed (2) coats of metallic silver paint. Spaced several day apart to allow each coat to harden. I also scored a set of Honda center caps. I will complete with stainless steel trim rings.

Edit: Pictures will be added later this morning with better light. I am also aware that some do not like this look but I kind of like it. Oh, and this mod will increase horsepower by at least 10 percent, guaranteed.

Thats different. I would of painted the wheels with the rust stopper black paint, then added chrome trim rings and lug nuts.
