Refinish the lip. Look on here as somebody recently did a thing on refinishing rims.

I dislike black rims though, just my two cents.

Keep them stock or paint just the centers to match your car. To refinish, you have to take out all the torx screws to get the centers out. Really easy actually. Then just used multiple grades of sand paper attached to a drill and polish. I've done a few sets that way.

I think another good paint color would be a bronze, something similar to the color you'll see STI wheels painted. That, combined with the red, would look great. You'd just have to make sure the paint isn't overly vibrant. GL

I like the grey! They turned out nice. But I think I might consider the light bronz but for some reason I don't know how I'm going to like it against the red...
