Wheels with Silver Face and Black Lip?

I am trying to find some pictures of wheels with a Silver face and black lip. Everything with a lip is usually X color face and polished lip. I know there is the SF-71 diamond cut black, but it is a mesh wheel, not a lipped wheel so the look comes out different. What are the other options in that colorway with a lip? Thanks

why not just get wheels you like with the polished lip and then plastidip the lip yourself? and it comes off easy too if you happen to change your mind.

ghettofab? your username is edirtaynine. ghettofab would be anything with chrome.

but anyway back to the main topic. I have black wheels, just trying to change it up. I want to avoid powder coating since they were already powder coated at the factory. Debate whether or not they will weaken the wheels more. I would go to a shop that can paint or polish them instead. And since I would be paying for that, I would rather make it a more custom finish instead of the usual as I mentioned earlier.
