    Ok..I just bought a set of IMMACULATE 2g 17" GSX rims locally with tires at a great price. Anyways. I have a red 90 GSX, with the 92-94 front end conversion. Anyways, Im trying to decide whether I want to paint them Bronze, with a polished lip, or Gunmetal with a polished lip. The problem im having is a friend of mine sprayed the Gunmetal on his s15 rims, and he said it had texture to it, I heard this same thing from another person. Anybody had any good luck with the Dupli-color wheel paint in Gunmetal?. I would like some opinions, pics if possible. Any other brands of paint that I could use? Oh ya, he then painted another rim bronze with the same paint, and it came out smooth.. Help me guys.

    well, I changed my mind on the wheels. I don't think im going to mess with them. I posted them in the classifieds to sell them. here are the pics. I would like to see these Photochopped with bronze,silver lip,carbon fiber mitsubishi symbol in the middle.

    This is my friends 92 Eclipse GSX with the 2Gb GSX wheels. Sorry for the small and lack of pictures. This is just a sig from a local street racing site.

    Those wheels look like the early 3g 17's to me. The design is the same, but they are not two piece like the 2gb 17's... Just thought I'd point that out. They are way too clean to be off of a GSX. That's a good thing because the 2gb 17's bend SO easily.

    They would look good though in black, gunnmetal, or bronze. I had mine black. I've never seen bronze on them though. Bronze would look cool, especially on the right color car.

    2g GSX and 3G 17" rims look exactly the same. My 98 GSX rims are two piece like stated though.

    The gap in the front is due to the engine being out
