well if you take them to any auto body place they can paint them, but id suggest you prepair them first since it took me like 3-5 hours to get them ready to paint. its not hard just tidious. Sand blasting is they key though to get all the edges good. You dont have to take the paint off just scuff it up some then use like 400 grit sandpaper to smooth it out.

You weren't the guy on CarDomain with the Lexani wheels were you?

they will come with the tires, i took them off day i bought the car and had them off for about 4 months before i put them on painted so about 8000 miles on them. They are professionally painted and baked. i will take updated pictures of them once i decide to get rid of them. Im only looking for offers now to get a ballpark. I have 2 weeks until mine are in or if i get a great offer ill take them off right away and throw my old chrome ones on for 2 weeks. ill order brand new black spline drive lugnuts as well and throw them in as well.
