These rims were on my moms 2009, and we swapped rims with my 2006 right after she got it. Taking them to the dealer was a pain as I had to swap them back and forth.

Id like to powdercoat them, but I dont know anyone that can do it. The local place wanted an amount I couldnt afford...
Unfortunate, but maybe it's just time paint them yourself? Buy some wheel paint at Autozone and go for it. It won't look as nice as the OEM finish but there doesn't seem to be another affordable alternative.
