Thanks Brian and Avie. I got them for 175, they are missing clear in some spots and some scuffs but not all that bad. and missing center caps obviously. Prob powder coating them black, or dark gunmetal. And i'm looking into a paint job, i can't take this horrid half clear coated paint any more.

That's what i was thinking about doing is a red lip. And idk if i want the caps or not, they would end up black anyways.

SVT center caps are black. I would not paint the wheels black or a dark color. The wheels look great just the way they are and they make your car look good. If you go with black, it's gonna cheapen the look of your car.

You need to lighten up. Just cause you have black wheels doesn't mean I was talking about you.

No, but certain wheels do not look good black. SVT wheels look great if they are left silver or changed to a brighter color such as white.
