My 19" Metallic Black wheels

Here finally got the 19's fitted after Pristine painted them.
Free from BMW Listers as a present.
What do you guys think, pictures not great.

Where's the painted part? Are they painted on the inside part of the wheel?

The barrel and inside lips look like they're painted gloss black. Nice touch, but most people wouldn't ever notice that...

It is subtle but I think it makes the spokes really pop.....Steve

That's really subtle. I think taking a picture of the wheel's interior would show off the paint best.

I was expecting black rims......That being said...the contrast that is provided is subtle, but def noticeable if you are looking, and it looks good.

Not really feeling it. Would have left it stock. But that's just me.

I think it's very subtle, but I like it a lot. I personally wouldn't do it, but since it was a gift, can't go wrong.

Haha, I have to admit I'm pretty jealous you beat me to it.

I pick mine up in.... an hour and a half. I did the same thing, though mine are a matte black powder coat.

It looks good!

My shop offered to coat the whole thing black if it turned out I did not like the way it the design turned out, but I'm feeling pretty confident now

Love the contrast gives the rims a very aggressive look for OEM

It looks good, but I just don't understand why anyone would go to the trouble of doing that when the OEM finish is dark as is.
