VS ute
i dont think black would look good with that dark green unless the rims have a chrome lip. maybe a really dark grey/charcoal color

I'd agree with Andrew, get them polished up and I think they'd come out mint. Painted rims don't usually end up looking to flash, but it comes down to personal choice so it's up to you

Powder coat

I wouldn't paint them I'd go for powder coat more durable.
And you really shouldn't drive your car around when its raining bubble no good for the paint.

vs exec.
I think you should just polish them up. I have seen rims painted, and they look ok but after you get a few stone chips on them they start to look real crappy..even pwder coated rims chip as well
