Hi, I've got new tires for my 67 beetle and I want to paint the wheels before I mount the tires. I seem to remember reading somewhere that wheels for 67s came came painted black with white centers or vice versa. Does anyone know what is correct or should they just be painted to match the body color?

Hi
Yes, they were  black centers with white outer rims
and I loved the look of them especially on white cars...
later models had silver wheels..

Thanks, I'm having the wheels sandblasted and then I'll paint them and soon be back on the road.
