Post Color for Vossen CV3 *Pics*

Okay so I got a tungsten pearl IS250. I wanted a custom job on the CV3 and told my shop to make it teal with polished spokes. They ended up coloring the sides of the spokes.

I wanted to know what you think I should go with the Tiffany blue color barrel or a white barrel. Imagine the spokes as fully polished though. I like the real but at the same time it is too much. As for white I don't know if it would match.

I would polish the lip and leave the rest as is!

I think it looks good. With the spokes fully polished.

Have the lip polished and post pic after, I think it would look better. That is a pretty loud color though. If you were set on polishing the spokes, I would do Tiffany Blue over White for the barrels.

Looks good I like it polished better. Nice job. Is that painted or powdercoated?

wow! looks bold, I think if you went with white it would be difficult to keep it a clean white. Interested to see how this looks on the car, for trying a new look

It's powder coated. This was the look I had in my head so when they gave it to me like how it looks in the first pic I was dissapointed. Can't wait to see it on too. Hopefully I can put it on tomorrow. If not sometime soon.

I think it has to flow with the overall car color too. If the car color match it, then it is sick but if not, it looks kind of tacky.
