Has anybody painted their Wheels black or installed aftermarket ones on their GranSport ? If yes pics please. Wonder how they would look on a Yellow GS with yellow calipers. :D

I thought about powdercoating my stockers black but everyone seems to have black wheels with silver cars, but I think black wheels with a yellow car would look good. Maybe even a yellow time attack ring to break up the rim and tire would look really good, especially with the yellow calipers. TC

I've painted my wheels black but cant figure out how to post the pix. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll email you pix.

How's this... I think it looks great!
Looks good but one suggestion would be to have the caps painted black and the trident inserts painted red.

Exactly what I thought.
The insert comes right out. Pry out with an exacto knife - it's just placed in there with very thin double sided foam tape. The excess tape comes out and then paint and seal.

Can you post full body pictures of the Rosso car with the black GS wheels or send them to me in a PM? I just purchased GS wheels for my Coupe GT and would consider painting them too.

Thanks!

Your car was one of the ones that got me hooked on the GranSport. Here is a photo I snapped last summer.

Nero Carbonio, black wheels and yellow calipers. Absolutely stunning !!

Looks like a primer coat to me.

Very dull. Takes away the sleek look of the car. I do think the satin is nice, but as much trouble as it is to keep it shiny, I think a glossy black Maser is a gorgeous sight.

Here is a "murdered out" QP . I really like the way this turned out. I would have gone with a stain black, and kept the headlights clear. Everything else looks great, but I def would have choose some nicer wheels.
