thanks guys!

here are some pix of the curb rashes/paint chips on the wheels

gonna take it so shops this weekend and get accurate quotes.. and ill be leaving it at one of the shops to get repaired

im thinking that since they will all be completely refinished, i could go a shade or two darker with the silver.

That would be nice, do them the same color as the Wolfsburg/Driver's/35th Edition wheels.

Looking good man. Those wheels were a bargain and offset is going to make it perfect.

i think i might keep the wheels OEM color for now. when it comes time to sell, itll be easier to sell them if they are at OEM specs.
