Looks good but I agree that it's not so hot against the white.

I think if you would go with gun metal paint color it would look better with the white, looks kinda goldish to me, here is mine with the "gun metal look"

Don't really care for them on any color car. Look like brake dust is covering them real bad.

I agree

Painted wheels can look good on some cars, but this color reminds me too much of brake dust and doesn't look that great to me.

I put burn them for two reasons. One I am not real crazy about bronze wheels Two because you see all the little ricers with their 12 Lb. bronze wheels.
That they say makes the car faster -LMAO- sorry had to throw that in there:D

my little ricer had bronze wheels... i'm just fond of the color

the stock wheels were light aluminum 14's... not much weight difference. :)

yeah i had a miata, what of it? ;)

After trying several different shades on my red '89 and hating them all, I finally bit the bullet and stripped and polished them. A big job and much work, but they look great now.

For a '95 you have to substitute '89 or '90 center caps which are stainless steel. They can be polished just like the alum wheels.

My memory could be failing, but I'm almost positive that early center caps will NOT fit late style wheels becaust the center opening on the early wheels is bigger.

You could be right about the center cap sizes, I don't know. Perhaps only the early wheels can be polished all over then. Alsa Corp makes Killer cans of Chrome paint, that is virtually indistinguishable from chrome plate. Expensive but very nice. I considered doing the wheels with it, but finally opted for the route costing only time and energy.
