Black to Green

Hey guys after looking at my car and seeing other cobalts around on here I want to change my rim color red and black to green and black, how would I do this. I curbed the red on one wheel and that gave me a reason to change them.

green vinyl pinstriping would be the easiest method

I would imagine sanding it or getting the entire rim powder coated would be easiest. Just sand it down to black and join the black on black sensation ;)

Makes sense. You might have to redo the entire rim if you are going to paint, which i would assume to be the best choice. But vinyl might work too. I know 3m makes some very durable products. Good luck either way.
