    I really like black wheels so im thinking of fully painting my bbs lm reps satin black.
    As much as i like the chrome dish i think i prefer all black!!

    I'd leave them as they are because with the chrome painted black you will lose the illusion of a larger wheel.
    The black will blend in with the tyre making the rim look smaller.

    Could do the spokes black thou n leave the chrome,just my thoughts...

    I agree with the above as I think Lm look small as they are becase you have a thick dish giving the illusion that the rim is smaller than they are opposed to a rim with spokes running all the way to the edge.

    Paint the spokes black and lower it. Sweet.

    I have also thought about having mine done one colour, but only to cover some of the corrosion on the rim and I'd go silver. At the end of the day your car your choice. I think they'd look ok.

    Suspension off an Avant Sport will bring it down a bit without shaking your teeth out.
