Contact Steffi at autoart and see if she can find the replacement wheels.

Definitely! That shouldn't be a problem for her.
Is she back to work yet? I understand that she was out for a while... :dunno:

Just paint them. Why would someone "misuse" Steffis good service for this? The more free parts she give away, the more likely she gets shut down. AUTOart's good spare parts service should be for missing/broken parts and not for things like this. If you offer to pay for them that's a different situation. These rims can be painted while still attached to the car as well! Just take off the tire rubber and paint away with Revell, Humbrol, Tamyia etc. A solid silver should do the trick.
