Default What Should I Do?

Alright guys as some of you know, I picked up some 06 Sport rims for my truck, they have a bit of pitting on them now, but im unsure of what to do.
I want to strip them, polish them, then re-clear them.
But I also kinda want to paint it silver or gunmetal (starting to lean away from gunmetal though, im a bright and shiny lover)
And I just think my truck wouldnt look good with the darker colors

Here are some pics with em on the truck.

(Yea, This ones not the best)

Also i need some wheel spacers. I dont think I need more than 1.25 or 1.5. What do you guys recommend (please though, dont just tell me to get new wheels, ive done all the research already)

I think the gun metal would look great for the colour of your Mazda plus it will ad some character
unless you do the outer rim gun metal and the center + spokes silver/shiny

wheel spacers are really expensive no matter what kind. your best bet is to buy them on ebay. and i say you just paint them black.
