What to do with my wheels?

Hello everyone, I just recently purchased a 2008 G6 GXP and have a number of projects I want to do. I plan on painting my calipers, getting cross drilled and slotted rotors, but what to do with my rims?

They are currently this: http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p...psc8f47344.jpg

However the backs are worse, this one being the worst: http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p...ps3b865acb.jpg

I don't know what I want to do with them yet. Thoughts?

Black would be my choice, but you could go either way.

Yeah those plastic covers are not repairable, so aftermarket is your only choice it seems.

Black IMO make the wheels look really small because they blend In with the tires.

I agree. If black a chrome lip looks best.
