Yeah, I was either gonna go black or with the Cabernet. My Caddy was black, so I decided to go with something different this time (and my minivan is black too). Took a bit of a chance, but it is nice to have something different. I'm sure I would have been happy with black however. I will take good care of the paint. I keep my cars pretty pristine and new looking throughout their life. Plus, I don't really put that many miles on my cars because I take the bus to work.
I don't mind the lug nuts showing, depending on the wheel. Although, all aftermarket wheels I've previously bought had centercaps that covered the bolts. Its really just the overall look for me.
I had found some wheels I wanted and was making specifications on how I wanted it painted and I ran into a snag. Of course I knew the cost of the exact paint to color match would be pricey, but it was even pricier than I thought. But the real problem was the application process for the paint, the guy I was working with on my wheels said he didn't think he was skilled enough to follow the paint application instructions, and that I'd probably need to take it to a collision/body shop to get the wheels painted. So I'll need to look for a simpler non metallic paint that is close in color and talk to a body shop for more research. I may end up just going with black aftermarket wheels.
