Should have ordered them that way.

Will be tough to cleanly remove the paint or powder coat without messing it up.

You may be able to apply some silver pin stripe or have someone mask and paint.

Well then I gusse I will be going with a silver stripe painted on, and forge star does not sell them like that, one color combos, and no if you look closely youl see the reflection it's definitely chrome or the shiniest white iv ever seen

Could of been polished aluminum then taped off and painted black ?

Oh odd they give off a sheen, and how shinny of a silver can be painted on ? I'm throwing the chrome/polished accents back on the car it wouldent look right if it was a dull silver color ?

I'm hoping a Metallic Silver will look good. I won't be getting them for a while though i want to at least run through the current tires i have before buying new 315s. Good Luck with whatever you choose to do!
