Picked up these avids yesterday can’t decide what color I should paint them or leave them bronze. I haven’t seen a lot of silver civics with wheels that aren’t black. Thinking white, black with gold specs or gun metal. Any suggestion is welcome

If the paint on them is perfect i would not paint them personally i like this color i think it will look very nice...what if the finish you get after painting them you don't like...you cant go back to how they are now...also i wouldnt put my brand new wheels straight on concrete like that.

If you have to paint them because they are a bit messed up then i would personally go gun metal.

They’re used. They have minor curb rash but they have scratches from snow chains from the previous owner which is why I want to paint them. I’m leaning towards gunmetal also thanks for your input

Bronze or gunmetal would great, IMO. Also, you can always add a little pop of accent color with colored lug nuts and/or rim graphics. On either bronze or gunmetal, I think red tuner lug nuts + a thin red vinyl strip on two or three of the rim spokes (an increasingly popular option) would add a nice pop that accents the other red components of the car (e.g., the taillights), and ties everything together.

Depending on your timeframe, I might be able to render a poor photoshop mock-up with some options on your specific ride. 😄 All I would need is a high quality pic of your car + the name/brand of those rims (so I can find a HQ pic online for the render). LMK! I could probably get it to you by the end of the week.

I actually thought about red or a shiny blue too! It has a little too much pop for my personal taste I want something kinda subtle. Thanks for you input fam

Okay, as you wish. 😄 Either way, I’m sure it’ll be a neat look.

Another vote for bronze. Just find some bronze paint if you have to touch up some rash.
