Advice for center cap

I use Bmw wheels on my Camaro. the wheels came with the stock center caps with BMW logo. I painted them black to hide it, but I don't really like the look.
what color would you suggest, or other solution to make it look better.

I might also have to repaint the wheels, because they are a bit scratched, what color would fit the madeira maroon? i was thinking about a darker grey maybe

Re: Advice for center cap

With the trim you have on your car I think they would look good chromed. It would cost about $100 a wheel though.

Who has the Mirthmobile?

A friend of mine had BMW wheels on his 02 T/A. He had someone cut some brushed nickle center cap decals with the Pontiac logo. Unless you were looking at them point blank you couldnt tell they werent factory.

Anyone with a decal cutting machine can do this for you.

Just a quick chop (I could do a better job of Chroming if I spent more time) so you get a idea of how it would look.

The Pacer is my father's car, the rx8 on the back is my daily driver

I don't really like chrome wheels, I think I would try to paint them a darker calor: anthracite, or better like these wheels: (chrome shadow from BMW)


concerning the center caps, I will try to use a decal on them, with a logo

Re: Advice for center cap

The bolt pattern is nearly the same: 120mm vs 120,65mm.
that is 0,325mm per bolt
The E39 wheels have nearly the correct backspacing.
