Arrow Custom Finish Alloys!

Hey guys, i own a Type II Black Zen with 14" rims. its rims are hyper-silver finish with mirror lips. Now i would like to change the wheel`s finish just by leaving the mirror lips up-touched.
Titanium and Bronze finish are there in my option, Any other finish other than these? Can anyone help me on geting the right finish that will suit to my car.

All suggestions and comments welcomed!

Am uploading some pictures!

Thank you!
Happy Revving!

really loved the last pic,very well maintained zen.why you want to change the color its looking dashing with those alloys.(but if you want go with golden will look hot on black)
in the first pic it looks like the tyre is to close to the fender dosen't it scrape on pot holes.

@ karankapoor: It would appear that way because the car has been parked on an incline. Check other pictures, shows good clearance.

Titanium finish with the shiny lip is what will suit. Bronze is a little jangy i feel.

@k_shanz, Try changing them to copper with miror lip, they will go well on your black car(im refering the color that comes on the new lenso samurai series, like in the pics)

Thank you guys. Does these finishes go with the mirror lips.?
even if i select one among these shades which finishe i'll spray on? Matt, glossy or satin (one between other two finishes)
please help me on that also. My opinion is to go for satin with more of matt finish, like that seen on the samurai series's pictures posted by audiophile.

Bro, try painting the spokes gun metal grey and on the mirror finish lip try a red tinted clear. You'll retain the shine of the chrom with a nice sporty red sheen to it. The rest of the spokes will blend in with the car giving a surreal appearance when the car is moving.

best part is if you dont like the tinted clear later on, you can remove it and get it buffed to get the oe chrome back on.
