Question Possibly Repainting 17x7 O.Z. Crono Evo Rims

Here they are as they came in a bright silver finish with the O.Z. decals.



So, what color would you change them to if at all?

3/4 of them have seen some better days from curb rash, crappy Tampa roads, etc. that might warrant the wheels to be redone either as a repaint or powdercoat, but that will be if I decide to even go on with the process.

Gunmetal.

But the decals are what make that wheel so cool. Otherwise, it's just kind of a generic, old school five spoke. I don't know if there'd be a way you could reproduce them after you have them painted, but I'd look into it. I'd figure out a way to do gunmetal with light/medium gray decals.

If I couldn't do that, I'd just get them refinished so they only fix the damaged portion of the rim. I'd leave the rest of the wheel (and decals) alone.
