Looks awesome!

If you do the Calipers IOM, you should think about doing the indentions around the lug nuts with IOM vinyl strips.

I was thinking to make the caps IOM. With a SS maybe? Anyone knows where to score some SS caps from that will fit stock SS rims?

When you paint your calipers I would replace the OEM pads with the ones I've listed below. They leave virtually zero dust. I put them on when I powder coated my calipers and it's one of the best things I did.

Massively sexy sir.....

One of the first things I did to my 95 when I picked up a set of SS wheels was to powdercoat them white.

Best thing I coulda ever done to that car. Made it really pop.

Love how these look on the 5th Gens too.

I was looking to powdercoat mine locally as well, and for a single color it was $100 per rim. Just call up a some local places and get pricing is your best bet.

I agree, most color matched rims look ghetto IMO, but white doesnt look like that at all. Very classy, sexy and clean.

Looks Great OP! My vote is white center caps with either IOM Bowtie or "SS". Do not like the idea of any other IOM on the wheels, will take away from the clean look IMO.
