Check eBay, if they're too expensive, I would wait to find properly priced ones. You don't really have a winter, so excessive rust in there shouldn't be an issue.

BTW do you guys knew the FOMOCO OEM Wheels were made in China?! The wheels are labeled FOMOCO from inside, labeled Made in China also! And the wheels center caps are labeled Made in Germany... Is this correct or I got ripped off?!

The rising cost of education

I bet my local FD is gonna charge a lot for them ($30-35USD piece)
Damn I hate myself!
Don't be so hard on yourself. If you keep at it working on cars you'll someday do much worse than breaking a few pieces of plastic. You'll also learn something from each experience that people who never work on things themselves will never learn.

Consider the cost of your mistakes to be the tuition for your education. The skills you'll build will be worth it. Just don't make the same mistakes more than once. Save being hard on yourself for the times you do, 'cause they'll probably happen, too.

This x2000000000 ive learned more on my own and reading very carefully. Some things you do need pros to do. But if you can learn to do it yourself, thats something you cant put value to

There are at least two lessons there.

One: how to not strip nuts when you put them on.

Two: to stop when something doesn't seem right and figure it out before continuing.

One or two out of the twenty nuts were the first lesson, the rest were the second. Looking at it like that makes you feel like you got more for your money, which helps.

Solid gray, or painted + machined?

You mean you're going to paint the silver wheels solid gray using the same color as the gray/machined wheels? Or you're going to try to make them "bi-color" like the gray/machined ones?

You could just leave them all solid silver until that changes. They look great that way on SGM sedans. Who knows, you might decide you like it that way enough to not bother painting them even after the high season money rolls in.
