painting wheels for my daily driver

I am putting some hotrod flavor in my daily driver (1993 Chevrolet s10) 3/3 drop flush tonneau and some mild graphics . I am really into big billet wheels nor are they practical on a dd . I have always been in to hotrods so I have decided to paint the set of 1994 sonoma steel wheels with triangle holes are the edge and the center caps are the charcoal grey gmc center caps I bought from a buddy for 50 bucks. my last resort is back to original satin silver My 2 choices are dark blue with the center caps painted silver for an old school look (I wish i could find smooth caps to fit these and no money to buy real smoothies) my other choice is paint them center caps and all a textured grey and put chrome trim rings on for a sort of AM. RACING SALT FLAT SPECIAL look. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME INPUT !!!! ( NO PAINT THEM BLACK REPLIES EITHER NOT MY STYLE !!!)

Goshens either way would look good..though I am partial to the blue silver combo..try and find some Ford argent gray as that looks good on wheels..JMHO
