Well, I kinda wanted 18's, but didn't want two sets of wheels (summer/winter) so I figured 17 was a good balance. I was searching for the painted 16's but no one was selling them for the right price so I have up.

I'm thinking, (sometimes I do) if PENNUT said they're the same, painted and unpainted, can I get the silver ones and get them painted like the bi-color wheels in the photo?
I found a set of 4 wheels (silver, used, 16') for $340USD selling locally (Cancun). No tires, no TPMS.
What ya think? Should I wait a little longer or?

I'd go for it. Realistically, I've only seen them for sale once on here I think, and eBay has one set that's been $129/wheel for the past year and then some. Worst case scenario you suck at painting and still have a decent set of wheels.
