Finally took pics with my new rims on...

So, I am finally posting some pics with my new 20" Lexani LSS-55 rims on. I had them put on about 2-3 weeks ago. I like them a lot but I'm not sure if I like them as much as I did before they were put on. Something about it doesn't feel like the look I was going for but they are growing on me. I'm thinking it might just be because I haven't lowered it yet. That will be my next mod hopefully in the next few weeks. The rims are 20x8.5 in the front and 20x10 in the rear with the stock Pirelli's. Also thinking about maybe plasti-dipping the silver spokes in white and maybe the lip if I'm still not satisfied with the look after the drop. I am going for a white/black theme with everything. I'm planning on matte black plasti-dipping the Camaro logos, the shark fin, all or part of the spoiler and all or part of the side mirrors and the bottom part of the front bumper underneath the bottom grill like the ZL1. Oh and I am also getting matte black rally stripes put on the hood, trunk and spoiler and smoking out the front side markers to match the rear.

Let me know what you think of the rims and my plasti-dipping plans. Any suggestions and/or comments are welcome.

If it were me, I would take them off the car before I plastidip them. I like them though ! I was eyeballin those myself for a time, but I can't seem to find any wheel package that I like so much more than stock to fork out almost the price of a twin turbo kit.

Thanks for the advice, I'm still not sure if I will go through with the rim plasti-dipping. How much is a twin turbo kit? These rims cost me $1400 total out the door and that's with installation and tax.

I don't know about the plasti-dipping part,but I think right now,the rims complement your white car and black gills very well ,right now.

Thanks, but yea I've actually seen these pics. He has 24's which are a little too big for my tastes and I think if I do plasti-dip/paint them they would be very similar to his but with black on the top part of the spokes.
