well I painted mine myself but a buddy of mine said he would do it for $200....that also includes blacking out the center caps so they dont say KIA

I like my calipers being silver so they have some contrast against everything else being blue and black....with them being silver they stand out now

and no....the koup should not have pink wheels :)

Wanted to paint mine blue when I got my car.....but finally I went for something different and totally contrasting!

But I have to say that blue on blue doesn't look that bad!!

If you wanna see something different, take a look at the orange I put with the stripes on my koup....totally different look!

silver calipers? nobody knows you even have them because they cant see them and now they definitely cant see them. silver is a terrible color to have with black wheels and bright ass blue inserts. there has to be some sort of color break between you blue car and your blue wheels. either yellow or red. NOT BLUE! lol it looks good though. i think if my dealer had blue sx on the lot, i would have taken it over the white ex but they didnt

10 year old post...fortechick's car is a 2010 Forte Koup SX (you can tell it's a 2010 by the mirrors with the large light housing) and the factory tires are 215/45R-17.

I've had my wheels painted to match the body color....Looks so much better than the stock silver!!

the reason I ask is because I have the 2017 forte lx and am upgrading the rims, and wanted to know if using 215/45/17 would be ok and if it will or will not rub
