Default SGM on Bronze Wheels

Decided to change thing around a bit, got my wheels professionally painted.
Let me know what ya think! here are some pictures. (Constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated)
I dont see a lot of SGM on Bronze/Gold

Before: (Canon EOS)


After: (iPhone 5)

I'm not sure how I feel about them yet. I definitely love the look, I just don't know if I like it better... hmm I think in the long run I'd rather have the silver finish. Looks cleaner and flows with your clean car better I think

I did a google search for "SGM with bronze wheels" and your thread came up. Not much out there at all so I just gave it a shot.

Silver is getting a little boring for me since most of my previous wheels were silver so I gave bronze a shot haha
I do like them but wasnt sure a 100% so I got them painted instead of powdercoating.

I like SGM and bronze, and it definitely works! Before it didn't sound right on paper, but looks great seeing it together.

I know right? I wasnt a 100% sure either but luckily I have a buddy with a body shop and got them done for a great price.
