What should i do?

Alright guys as some of you know, I picked up some 06 Sport rims for my truck, they have a bit of pitting on them now, but im unsure of what to do.
I want to strip them, polish them, then re-clear them.
But I also kinda want to paint it silver or gunmetal (starting to lean away from gunmetal though, im a bright and shiny lover)
And I just think my truck wouldnt look good with the darker colors

Here are some pics with em on the truck.

Also i need some wheel spacers. I dont think I need more than 1.25 or 1.5. What do you guys recommend (please though, dont just tell me to get new wheels, ive done all the research already)

I vote strip, polish and reclear! Before you clear them you could always paint the pockets in them to be different as well.

I think a chrome black or chrome gunmetal would look good.
