Spray paint them black. That's what I did.

Mine will be up for sale in the spring.

Actually, got an awesome deal on them off of Craigslist. The guy had them professionally painted black on the inside and they have Pirelli p zero tires that still have a lot of rubber on them with minimal scratches on the rims and picked them up for $225

Yep, exactly what I did. Scuffed them up a bit then put down a few coats of black paint.

Why you sellin Joe?
I want a better riding daily driver and plan on running an all-season setup on stock 16s. The Bullitts look great and the low-profile tires give it much better steering response and handling, but the ride is stiff and I've grown tired of it now that I have another hot rod. I've got a set of Potenza RE-01R's on the front that barely have 3,000 miles on them.
