My ugly rims

Trying to get some ideas. What do you think.

Options:

1. Powder coat my rims black w/ polished lip for $150 and buy some 15" gregwelds or draglights.

2. Save up about $500-$600 for some black or chrome deep dish c5 or zr1's

The real question is do you guys think that powder coating the rims I have now will make them look nice or do they just need to go?

Some pics...

Save up for others.......go a different route other than the normal vette wheels you always see. I hated my Z06 wheels after a year bc everyone else had them.
