So I should just leave them stock?

BigRob, do you mind if I ask how much that cost you? And how difficult has it been to keep those clean?
it depends on the color. yelp or google around and ask for quotes

my highest quote for powdercoating in black and clear was $450 so hope that gives you an idea.

you can keep them stock if you want if its winter who is going to care. spring/summer/fall is what you want to stick out but its just color. only do it if you really want to finish it off and keep that set or buy a set of rims w the color you want already.

another choice is if you want to plasti dip it which costs cheaper but not sure how it holds up sorry, someone else might pitch in.
