    Yes that it gun metal grey. Unfortunately, I bought them that way so im not sure on the prep. The are not normally shiny, that is just water, but it is the best picture I have at the moment.

    For those of you who have painted their stock rims, did you do it with the tires on them or did you take them off to do it?

    you can either tape off around the rim or what most people do is line the rim with a deck of cards to prevent over spray
