Swap rims with someone else gold rims who wanted silver. There used to be people on here that did it when they first came out. Or you could always just sell them here in the private classifieds or on ebay and buy gold ones.

You could also ask the dealer to order the gold wheels and just swap them.

dont paint your BBS rims. theyre bbs's for godsake. and you are going to be paying for something that wont look as good as the real gold bbs. all the effort to sell your rims and buy silver ones will be well worth it if you really want gold rims.
