i have 17" EXCEL wheels, very nice but the clear coat is chipping off and there are some black and yellow paint specks over it ( last driver must have crossed the NEWLY painted yellow lines lol), so i am thinking of painting mine aswell cuz the chiped clear coat gives it a grubby look... i was thinking about gloss black, or some angle dependent optical shift paint (chameleon paint?)... how do you think that would turn out???
