You can polish up your outer rims with a piant stripping wheel and a cordless drill, took me about 10 minutes for each rim. Oh and you need paint stripper to remove clear coat and old paint. I would keep your rims the same color Angelo, your car looks perfect as it is. dark rims would not look good on your car IMO.
I will be redoing my rims later this year, I just did a half a$$ job because I was sick of my always dirty crosslaces. I did not clear coat my rims yet as I still have more polishing I would like to do and also not sure if I will stay with the gunmetal or not. I will include step by step with photos next time.
