Hi, I have an F56 Midnight Black and it comes with 16" silver spoke, I would like to change the color by painting them with Plasti dip, which color you think would be better. Black, white or leave it OEM? I'll appreciate your comments.

Personally I think the chrome looks pretty nice on there.

Im not a fan of white wheels personally but then again its not my car :)

If it were me in the same boat I would consider wheel design rather than color and maybe go for a more intricate pattern.

Whatever you do though its a sweet looking car, congrats.

If you go on www.mytyres.co.uk and click on alloy wheels they show you a vo mini and you can play around with a variety of aftermarket alloys. I like mini ones though as a rule

Errr...*Cough"...Pat Back Tracks....

Just seen how much a set would cost! I think the Chief would think £1000 is a bit more than a Birthday Present lol

Thanks all for your comments. I'll try on black and post some photos when done. Certainly would be great to change design, but its a bit expensive. And here in Mexico its not necessary to change tires and wheels on winter because it doesn't snow.

Black wheels, Cesarpand! Definitely black! A lot of people like the 17" black cosmos rims. They look great, undoubtedly, but I think the 16" black victory spokes look just as good, and are quite a bit cheaper too.

Its with plasti dip. I didn't want to have them paint because I didn't know if was going to look good. So now I'll wait until it last and then to paint them definitely with black color.
