Dumb wheel question.

For my Camaro, i am pretty set on getting Crager SS wheels. BUT the only problem is i have drum brakes on the back. Will they look right with drums on the back, just curious.

Are they rusty? You could paint them either black to hide them or a bright color to contrast. There are several brake paints out there thanks to the fast n furious crowd's wide open wheels.

Paint the drums black and you won't even notice them.

I paint mine red, with the front calipers also red. I think it looks` sharp, but "To each their own"

My mustang has 4 wheel drums and I have Crager SS's on them. Of course they are all flaking off chrome and the car is in crappy condition, but if you see it from far away, it all FIT's like it looks like it should. No worries.

Looking at my post it doesn't come off the way I wanted.

My last daily driver was a yellow saturn sc2. I did alot of work on it and got into the whole sport compact thing. I had 17" black rims and realised how bad bare or rusty drums look behind good rims. (They also look small behind 17's) I painted the centers of my rotors and my drums yellow to match the car, with a commercial brake paint that I got at my local specialty shop. It was a two part high temp epoxy paint and held up quite well until the minivan pulled out in front of me.

Since then I don't invest alot in my daily driver, just keep it safe and running well, and spend it on my 54.
