why not just powder coat them? if you paint them it wears and chips.

maybe painted like this:



Cool 4wd civic , gold wouldnt look too bad. I would rather keep them silver because I dont believe you could get a nice gold finish with a spray can, maybe you could go and prove me wrong. Good luck with the rims

powder coating is cheep. i had mine done for 120. plus if you look at the combined cost of painting over and over again to keep it looking good.

Leave 'em stock color to start... 17"s on a hatch is gonna be enough bling at one time
