Finally went crazy.

My wheels are now bronze. Probably going to get pulled over a lot more often now because it looks like a modded Subara STI and I look like a young Asian street tuner.

Sorry it's bronze (I'm going crazy). It's metallic paint on top of Plasti Dip so I can rip it off when I start to hate it. Red/Bronze looks like a sick combo for your Ironman M3 because the Ironman armor has always looked bronze and red even though it's red and gold.

I love bronze on TE37s and perhaps some other applications but the contrast with the car is different, not sure... Anthracite would be nice, not too dark to hide the wheel's shape/design

It's actually bronze paint over plastidip, the wheels are painted gloss black. I started to hate it after a week but I've just been too busy to peel it off.

And I got arrested by the taste police a day after painting them bronze.

They are. What you're seeing in the picture is plastidip over my black wheels and then bronze paint over the dip. It's completely reversible. I just haven't had time to peel it off.
