What do you think? Check out my rims on my rides page (page 2)....Right now they are the Black Opal Konig Verdics 17 in. I think I want to paint them. They are in great shape and a few minor scratches from normal use, washing. What color do you suggest? I'm thinking a darker tink towards graphite.

vtecd17 is an unknown quantity at this point
Na don't paint ur rims. That stuff always looks ghetto no matter how good you do it ya know? But thats just my opinion. I would go and buy some new ones, and try and sell ur old ones.

Powder coat if anything. Paint will just chip, it is practically impossible to do right. Just buy new ones to save yourself the hastle, money, and potential failure
