SRT8 Wheels - I've got an extra set and need advice

So when I bought my 2014 SRT GC it came with the 10 spoke satin carbon wheels and I had explicitly asked the dealer if it had the black vapor chrome wheels. Because they messed up on it I got an extra set of black vapors straight out of Mopar.

I intend to use the black vapors but two of the four wheels had tires on them at some point and they already got minor scratches on them from the tires being removed by the dealer. My question is how well do these things hold up?

I have a feeling that the matte satin wheels i have on now might be better candidates for a black powder coat which I'm afraid I might have to do with the black vapor chrome eventually if they get scratched up so easliy. Just looking at these things I have a feeling they won't hold up. The satin carbon wheels are not originally what I wanted but they've grown on me, they also don't give any sort of illusion like they might get damaged easily when compared to the black vapor wheels.

Also I'm considering selling one of the sets or just selling one by one as people do scratch their rims through various means. Obviously with the wheels being different I don't actually have spares... Can anyone confirm what fair street prices for these things are?

These are originals, not replicas.

Thanks Scott!

I may end up doing that.

I have a couple questions for you. Are your wheels powder coated? WHat is the finish on them? While I love the look of your Jeep I'm not such a huge fan of those wheels tbh. Do you think the same treatmet would work on the 10 spoke wheels?

Also how did you get the letters off the side of your car? Was your car repainted afterwards? It looks amazing in the red but a repaint seems like a nuts proposition imo.

I've heard of someone else taking off the letters and liking it better w/o the letters, I think I agree with the assessment. I am worried about damaging the paint though...

Once again thanks in advance!
