    BuddyClub P1s should only ever be gunmetal grey. Don't do something you'll regret later.

    If you don't like the look of the grey on maroon, I'll swap with you.

    ATM I'm runnig DC5 Type R rims...my second choice after the P1s.

    There's no real reason as to why the P1s should only ever be grey, it's just my opinion. But the dark wheel/maroon paint contrast works well.

    agree with brash, P1s should stay a stock colour, the gold is horn. Too much $$$ for not enough result respraying them pearl colours.

    i think they are hyper gold or gunmetal atm its just the rashes r pissing me off! so i thoughtlets just go hectik purple cherry or sum outrageous colour.

    i was thinking white is nice wif maroon so i thought mother of pearl loox a different shade of white

    my rims got a couples of gutter rashes from previous owner and its pissing me off, its currently P1 with a white colour (stock colour i think). How much you think it would cost me to fix all the rashes and powder spray the rims to gun metal?
