I would not have your rims painted, but powder coated. You could have them all done for around $200, I looked into having my 18" GTP wheels done. Powder Coating will look better and last longer too. I decided to wait till I need a new set of summer tires so I don't have any extra money involved with mounting and balancing (probably be this coming winter).

thanks for the advice, yeah i was looking into doing something with the rims i have now since i like them. but my other idea was that i could save my money this summer and put winter tires on the stock rims since i go to the mountains alot and when summer comes around i can get summer tires and new rims. that way for the seasons i can swap rims and not change tires on the rim.

I bought a set of 16" steelies with blizzaks for the winter and run my 18" oe GTP wheels with Potenza RE050's in the summer. I had origianlly bought 18" blizzaks and swapped them out for the first few winters, but after they wore out I went the more economical route and purchased the steelies with blizzaks for less then just the 18" blizzaks, and next time I need snows they will be even cheaper because I just have to get a set of 16" blizzaks. As for the 18's I will probably have them powder coated come winter while running the steelies.
