Default gxp rims Gunmetal?

I was looking at my rims on the GXP (which were dirty) and it actually looked good haha. I mean I think a gunmetal GXP rim would look nice on a greystone GXP. I know you can chrome the rims but can you make them gunmetal looking?

With your body color I think that would look sharp. Keep us posted.
