Thank you.

Apparently, I should have worded that better! To answer your question, definitely not, as I've personally applied paint to my wheels with DIY wheel repair. (For those who might think of trying this in the future, be warned that just because everyone in your chassis subforum mentions Wurth paint, or that your first page of google results show Wurth paint, does not make it the best choice! In my case the proper OEM match would've been Felgensilber Metallic 144. Ask me how I know, well ok I'll tell you, a wheel repair pro in the detailing dept taught me that, but after it was too late!)

I'm not Alan, and I've never had it done, but I should mention that our sponsor, Detailer's Domain (aka Phil) out of NJ, has done more OC's than you can shake a stick at. If you search his threads in the detailing dept here, you are bound to find photos, possibly even hundreds of photos. There are instances where he does just OC the wheels only.
