gunmetal or matte would fudge up those wheels and make them pretty retarded. leave them alone.

you CAN get a bbk. if you use winter rims get a hubcentric thick spacer with integrated studs and you can run any OEM wheel as long as its a 17".

and u can pick them up for not much since u have alot of options from acura and honda

its not rice to paint them... but black or gun metal they wont look good..

your car looks good as is, and if you decide on painting them... think well on the color that will go with your car... i think white rims would look nice, but thats just me...
