Default to paint or not to paint that is the question?

so I was thinking about painting my wheels I really wanted DC-1s but I found a deal on these pro comps that I could not refuse. So should I paint them Black for should I leave them polished? Or any other suggestions bring them on I'm open to it

I wouldn't do it just because the wheels look great right now, nice and shiny.... maybe do it once they dull out.

+1 on leaving the wheels alone. Not need to fix what ain't broke.
