Congratulations and yes the owner of that car did a great job. His car is actually suzuka grey in photographs it does look white. HRE and DPE are two well known companies that will make wheels to your specifications. I hope you have a heavy wallet though because they are very pricey. Congratulations on the car and welcome to the forums.

Just an FYI:
Small pebbles get caught inside of your wheel all the time. When you have deep dish wheels, this will occur on both side of the wheel face, which means that the "show" side of the wheel will incur some damage over time. If you choose to paint the lips, then you can expect the damage to occur more readily than if you chromed them (chrome is tough).
I think it look pretty cool to paint them; it seems like everyone has chrome lips (including me) these days. However, I just wanted to share some info that may help your choice.
