How should I paint my Moabs?

Hey everyone,

EDIT: My jeep is Red for all you that just want to vote.

So Im on winter break and have some time, and I think I could make my moabs look cooler than they are currently. First thing is, I live in Colorado. Its cold out. Would the painting process be affected if I did it out in my garage (Im sure it would, but maybe not)? I could probably get some sort of heater if I need. Anyway, I know I want my Moabs to be mostly black. I was thinking of a few options. I would paint the face of them Semi-gloss black and then the inside part one of these options: Keep them the color Moabs are already, Paint them a Charcoal-grey color, or paint them red. My jeep is red by the way. Any other suggestions? I would like to paint them with two different colors and try to make the jeep be more like MY jeep . Any other suggestions? If you have any cool pics of painted wheels post em up too if you want. I am worried about finding a color that would match the red really well (I believe duplicolor's pr4 is the same color, not exactly sure though), my jeep is firetruck (flaming?) red. I dont think it would be that terrible to figure it out though.

Thanks guys

Edit: Just saw the poll option, so i decided to try it out

Well I decided to go with black/original silver color of the moab for now, and I think it looks pretty sweet. Just finishing up the last clearcoat. Ill have them mounted tomorrow after they cure. I also painted my brake calipers red. Some before, after, and during pics. I also found a massive screw in my tire witha rock wedged between it and one of the stubs, it must have been in there for a long time since i remember hearing a clicking like there was a rock stuck in the tread for a abnormally long time a few months ago. I guess i got lucky it hasnt blown out or anything, it hasnt even leaked!

And the rest. Now my wheels/tires are laying around in random spots in my house where they will fit without being in the way to much, next to the front door, laundry room, living room... haha. To cold outside w/o heater

That's cool, but kinda strange looking, I like my grey ones. 2 cans of duplicolor graphite wheel paint.

I agree, after a while im thinkin i dont really like em at all. Im gona finish them on tues, after seein yours i think i might go with some gunmetal on the rest, or paint the outer part black and inside of the spokes with the grey? Dunno.

Sweet jeep tho, Im not the craziest fan of them, but some are really cool, i like yours a lot.
