Default Hre wheels

I'm getting my wheels pc and in the process a lip replaced. Should I :

get new standard M8 bolts(not stamped hre)
pay for the $$$ for "hre" bolts
or
polish my original bolts?
I believe these bolts are chromed.

You can order fake $h_t or get real USA $h_T. Gnna pay out the **** for it but u pay to play. I think I'll try to polish'em up first and if that doesn't bring a shine to'em then new ones it is. This is my first set of real wheels so that's why I'm tryin to get others opinions.
Yo giantsfan you in San Jo or somewhere in tha Bay?

Send ur bolts to Chris @ dipsht.com and have them polished or dipped in copper or gold ^_^. My vote is polished. His prices are great.

Pm me if you need his cell# he is in Elk Grove

Finally completed about a month ago. I polished the bolts, by hand ea, and came out nice. There's a pearl on the paint which is difficult to see in the pic.

I know I know. Lol. I have minor things that I'm embarrassed bout, dumb stuff like my pitted bumper( daily driver) ect. Wheel Techniques( Santa Clara) hooked up the paint, did an excellent job. I was considering diff colored bolts but decided to stay with the polish & chrome look. I'm slowly gettin into the chrome blue or red look for the wheels.
