The white needs to be balanced out more not just one section.

Ken Block's car had black rims with a gun metal gray color (going off of memory here so don't quote me on that) spoke so there wasn't anywhere near as much contrast between the two colors and did not stand out anywhere near as much as your black/white combo.

Props for trying something different though! If it was me I would be repainting those ASAP though

**Edit**

I can only find pics of Ken's car with green rims with a white spoke. Not sure where I seen the black/gray combo before. Oh well.

I thought there was a bad reflection in the shiny part of the rims from the flash. It took me to read the other comments to realize what you did here.

lol, that's what I thought until you mentioned it.

I take it back, I don't want them even for free.

interesting idea for sure... From a distance with the snow in the background it looks like you broke off a spoke on each wheel haha. I think a color other than white would have turned out a little better but I still don't think I would do it.

IMO the thiner spokes and icon in the middle of the white on that wheel makes it look better... also the fact that it would be on a rally car.
