Stick with the 7-spokes, they were made for the swift and look better as well. Don't put nissan stuff under your car :P

edit: I also share the thoughts about spraying them, but not so crazy about the grey color though.

Looks great . I was planning to do something similar with my set of 7 spokes but the lip would stay polished aluminum . I like that charcoal gray . I may have to do that instead of black I was planning .

it was meant to be more clear tone, and maybe bçack
but my final decision was that charcoal gray , matches better with the car colour i think :D

i care not for black wheels. i don't think they do anything for the look of a car.

i like argent silver wheels, probably because of all of those camaros and chevelles my friends had when i was a young lad. :lol:

when i had a set of suzuki 7 spokes powder coated i agonized over the selection of a color. this is what i ended up choosing.
Image

the name of the powder coating color is ebony chrome. over that is a coat of clear polyester with a uv stabilizer. that will help prevent rock chips, scratches, and sun fade.
