As i told you those are stock wheels. May be you can get golden alloys manufactured by H&R or Neo.

Well i painted my 13" auras matt black for Rs500/- (I repeat 500) for 4 rims.I wasnt looking for anything fancy,just black rims.Quality really didn't matter to me,but i was more than suprised by the ffinish.For about 4-5k,you could a decent quality paintjob with good paints etc etc.

Some small time painter/tinker with a decent bit of experience.

Golden rims will really stand out on your car.But choose a unique design.

Neo,

It looks cool but i am not sure that you will find similar golden alloys for your car.

And i think black car with black alloys looks better that golden.
