IMO...I would let a pro paint shop paint them. They will DEFINETELY be more durable than rattle can paint.

yes!

Honestly, i'd just buy aftermarket, because the resale would be hard unless you have OEM wheels...ask me how i know!

i had mine powder coated and it cost me $130 total for all 4...it's been over a year and they still look like the day i got them. i think a lot of people pay around $50-60 per wheel usually, so anything under that is more than fair.

Plasti Dip!! Works great, requires no paint knowledge and instructions can be found by using the search on JG

I personally have done this myself and it works great. Leaves a clean flat black look that is power wash safe.
