Default Are my wheels 2008 OEM colored?

Hey guys, I just picked up a MSM ISF, but the wheels look darker than I remember for OEM (currently none for sale in my city to compare with). Any thoughts? Attached are photos in the sun and in the shade. Thanks!

They are sure screwed up, you need to get them reworked and refinished.

But, the finish looks like the right shade.

Yeah...the previous owner brought it to a car wash that did it and didn't figure it out until way later. I'm definitely gonna get them refinished to OEM because I think that looks best on MSM. Thanks for confirmation!

It's probably the acid they used, it etched the surface, cutting the clear making it look like that.....

pretty sure the surface is just dust, but the rash is definitely an issue

They look a bit darker but it's hard to tell from photos.

Your wheels are on backwards though. They're corner specific.
