I tlooks like it was kind of like a pin striping job on the out rim to create that time attack look. I just recently painted my wheels black myself! would love to give the time attack stripe a try but i don't have steady hands...

Maybe I misunderstood and the wheels were not machined at all for the outer silver finish, just masked up and painted?

Thanks guys.

Roadfrog - as far as I know, the shop painted the time attack with usual masking technique.

Omodos - my rims were originally silver color. I got it painted in matt black with the thin silver boarder.
