Default Photoshop help needed

Hi
Just wondering if gold 16" lace wheels would look really stupid on my 98 or not. Could the gold possibly be painted?

Thanks
Erik

I would definitely try silver crosslace if you are looking for crosslace rims. With all your chrome trim I think the gold will be overkill. But we'll see with the PS...I don't have time to do it though...sorry.

i agree, i think the gold would look terrible with all the chrome trim on your car

Sorry guys!
Thats what I get for posting when I am half way asleep.
Anyhow, the wheels in question are definately the gold, cross laced Bonneville wheels. I have a lot of doubts about the gold also, but they do have two things going for them:
1) They are local
2) They are CHEAP!

I am thinking maybe I could paint the centres? Body colour would be way cool, but unlikely to find high heat paint in that colour. Black would probably work well, as in the long run, I am planning to paint over a lot of the chrome trim anyway (lots of scuffs and scratches on it.) Or just find a nice bright silver?
Any thoughts/help would be appreciated.
Erik

Hmmmmm
Doesn't look terrible. Doesn't look amazing either. Probably looks a little under-tired. Gotta keep in mind too, that the rubber on there now is 205/70-15'*, whereas it will have 225/60-16'*.
A change of colour on the wheels would work out well tho...
