We'll see who actually gets it done first.

The prices of professional painting is scaring the crap outta me though. At the rates I get new 16's would be cheaper.

Duplicolour Graphite wheel paint if you want to DIY
Here is how it looked on my old car


Just make sure you prep well and buy the duplicolour clear coat.
Had mine for 2 years and did pleny of offroading and they still looked great

I heard there is a gunmetal powder coat, I'm sure that would look much better and more durable than paint, polishing is not a problem since there's alot of shops that can do it
