What kind of paint do I use for my hubcaps? Currently I wouldn't know but I have a Celica with smoked tail lights, S2000 antenna, so the car looks stealthy :D . So I was thinking to go all the way with my stealth idea and probably do black but im not sure about what type of paint.

i am trying to

the difference between rims and paint is about several hundred dollars. I will buy rims eventually but I hate hubcaps so I need a temporary solution.

I've seen alot of people here paint their stock five spoke rims to make it look like their spoon rims. But hub caps... My brother used to have gun metal painted stock Acura hub caps. Then he bought rims.

My hubbies looked pretty good, i wouldnt paint them, that would be tacky, but for hub caps they werent bad.



Of course i have Celica GT rims now, but thats a different story.

i do too, but i think that if the car is mainly stock, then it's alright to have them...I agree and save up for some rims like I am trying to do.
I still have to admit, my baby looks fine with her stock hubs...
