That are awsome rims .... But i do not like the 2 dots per spoke, you could remove them and your rims would look smoother ?

@attbvyrne I know if I put a shit ton of work into them, I can get a mirror shine. But these wheels have so many imperfections in them that a mirror shine would showcase them. If I can get a shiny aluminum finish comparable to the OEM wheels, I'll be happy with that.

@PaiN There's a guy on the VOG who put Vision wheels on his XCT and had no issues. In fact, the later visions came with the same wheel as the XCTs. I just checked the spacers and both the 2008 Vision and the 2013 XCT use the same ones.

The dots are only on one side and I believe they are artifacts from the casting process. Having said that, I could definitely remove them. it would just take a bit of time. I might just do that.

I would grind those casting marks off. Then, think contrast cut like the X1 rim, I would paint the rims after masking off the inside bevel. I'm not sure I'd paint them blue, but that might be cool; it's just that sometimes too much of the same color is, well, too much. I might go with gloss black - but then again that may be too much like stock.

Anyway, sort of like this:

Come to think of it you could mask off the ridges in the center as well...

You're a computer guy, take a picture and find a decent paint program and make some comps. Oh, and share them with us.

I am NOT a huge fan of the contrast cuts, either with the OEM wheels or even more so on aftermarket rims. They're popular, but they are not for me.

Being a computer guy doesn't automatically make me a graphic artist; quite frankly, I suck at that stuff. You'll have to suffer with old-fashioned digital photos

I was thinking all blue might be a bit to much also. What about the ridge in the center of spoke and then the edge of spoke blue it would be like outlining the rim.
