You can paint them no problem, however its better to have them powder coated it will last much longer. The shop thats painting your car will be able to help out.

Yes they can be painted, but a green car with red wheels would look weird IMO.

If I were you I'd paint them gold. Green and gold are the BOMB. That'* my unbiased opinion.

I'm gonna go ahead and say go silver... Green with silver rims would look better IMO ..or maybe green with white rims for a custom look ..lol. or green with black rims to go for the performance look.

Can you show us what color green? Will it be dark green or more like a bright John Deere green?
I'm with Alien on this one, silver would look good. I would say see what the white wheels would look like but there'* about half a dozen Civics in town, half of them are green, with white wheels that are just the ugliest things I've ever laid eyes on.
