Yeah, it'* a nice subtle change from the stock color. Not bad at all. Did you use a clearcoat on top of the gray? Or is it just a durable color coat?

Kinda looks like the wheel is dirty IMO.

If the tires are on, it'* a lot cheaper to just tape them off instead of spending the money to pull the tires, etc.

Looks stock to me. If you want "younger" looking, you might also consider a color match to the body of the car. We have a 1990 GP STE and back then you could get the coated aluminum or color keyed wheels. I always like the color keyed wheels since they were custom done to the car. And it looks sportier I think. Perhaps a quickie photoshop comparison of the two. Anyone want to generate the pic. I just don't have time right now.
