    Dark green and bronze are the excellent combo, I agree with the Flower

    GOLD looks better on green than bronze, imo... I'd go with straight silver, but if the choices are gunmetal/anthracite or bronze... bronze it is!

    Gold is kinda blingy for me, plus I can only really get decent wheel paint in three colors, silver, bronze, and granite.

    I'd go silver out of those choices on BRG

    You don't need wheel paint, buy any good base and then use a good clear. Just use a good primer and you'll be straight.

    I'll consider it, but I wanted to keep the car very suttle. I don't want it to stand out that much and I find silver wheels usually get targeted to be stolen by thugs who like to "get their shine on".

    Well I've done a set using duplicolor wheel paint before and it came out flawlessly so I wanted to stick to that since I've already done it once and had such good results.

    I used duplicolor primer, base and clear on my racing harts and they came out flawlessly as well. Ask Shafft, he's seen them. And the paint products I used wasn't their wheel paint, it was all regular stuff. I went that route because there were hardly any choices for color in their wheel paint.

    Then don't leave the lip polished. I say paint the whole wheel anyways.

    I agree, polished lip is only cool on cars that have actual LIPS on the wheels... not hondas with no dish
