Default Need Help Advice Badly! Rota Downshifts

My 2003 WRX is running on 17' Rota Downshifts (royal steel grey) which I love. Recently I was in an accident which destroyed one of the rims. I tried gettng a replacement from subydude but they basically told me the downshifts are being discontinued.

I searched the internet far and wide and no one has one availible in that color. My only option is to special order from Rota which will take 4-6 weeks. Which I can't do considering my car cannot be fixed without a new wheel.

I need Advice BADLY!! I really don't want to buy a whole new set of Rims. Not to mention I really love the look of the downshifts and would like to keep them.

Does anyone have any brilliant ideas? Someone had the idea of me getting the Wheel in a different color and then getting all 4 powder coated.

Is this a good option? Who would I go to, to get wheels powder coated. How much does this cost? Is it durable, long lasting? Could I get them powder coated in the same color as they would come from the Rota Factory?
Also, I assume I would lose the polished lip if I went with this route.

Anyone have any ideas or know where I could score a Rota Downshift Rim in Royal Steel Grey?

Are you willing to run a different color rim while we make you a Royal lipped version. If so, I can lend you a piece so that you can use your car while we produce a new batch of RSG downshifts.

Yeah, we're in the bay area too.

Oh and, we have some 17 take offs from our old bug eye. Might as well put it to good use and lend seasons a rim while he waits for a replacdement
