Default Paint or polish?

I'm trying to figure out what to do with my rims if I should paint them or just polish them up.

I have no experience with photo editing so this was the best I could do for painting it. I got tired of working on it so the silver ring around the outside would also be red. If anyone has any better suggestions for paint themes let me know as well.



Here's a picture of my truck what the painted rim.



Let me know what you guys think.

I like the colors it matches your truck very well....i actually think if u do get them painted leave the chrome ring it will tie in the other chrome of the truck....if u go with that color u cud change the front and rear FORD emblem to the black and red theme to tie it in with the wheels

some auto paint supplies stores can match oem color and put in air charged can.. I like the black n red, but not "flat black"...... I did my brothers wheels in gloss black, it shows definition of the wheels (curves n contours) ... go for it..
