stern rims

I just purchased a 335xi black on coral red and i ahve 19x8.5 and was wondering if they would fit and also was thinking about repainting them black again because of all the curb marks but wanted to put time attack pinstripe around them i noticed that all the time attack did not have big lips and were not chrome wondering how it would look if not i was thinking about painting the lip black also lip is about 2.5 or 3 inches any suggestions and comments would be helpful.

Okay 1st things 1st:

1. You have wheels not rims

Wheels are on cars, trucks etc.. Rims are on the basketball court.

2. So you have some wheels in 19X8.5 sizing correct?

3. If they have curb marks get them repaired before you paint them, or even get them powdercoated to look better.

4. Time Attack rings are played out

obviously i will get them repaired first but i am not sure how they will look but i wanted to kno if the time attack even if played out would look good because there is a machined face lip so i duno how it would look or should i just paint the whole rim black after i fix them or dip the lip in chrome.

Well obviously the lip is polished to begin with an not chrome so that may look really tacky
