Hey all. Is there any way to change wheel color semi permanently, similar to vinyl wrapping? I'm only asking because I'd rather not permanently change the stock wheels 1) in case I want the factory look back, and 2) if I ever trade the car in or sell it.

Would I be better off buying aftermarket wheels? That's certainly an option, I just didn't know if I had other options with the stock wheels.

Mostly looking to try some gloss black wheels. I have the Gravity Gray EX, windows tinted, etc, and I think black wheels would look nice.

Plasti dip wheels always look awful. A powdercoating wheel shop will powdercoat your wheels gloss black for about $800. That's what it takes to do it right. But at that point you could spend the money on another set of black wheels and more easily return the car to stock when you're done.

Thanks, I watched videos in plasti dip and it does seem to look pretty cruddy. Not what I'm looking for. Eh, I'll just shop around for some aftermarket wheels. :p

I believe that is the correct Kia K5 bolt pattern from what I'm seeing online, but I'm not sure. It would be helpful if anyone could confirm bolt pattern and offset.
Where'd you see that online? Because I've not been able to find anything, whether same or different from the suggested 5x114.3.
