powder coat them black. black oem rims would match the rest of the car. maybe run some red lugs on it too to change up the color just a little.

Powder coating is probably better than paint.

I think they look great on Fitcapio's Fit.

Then again, I am a sucker for black rims...

I'm not a fan of painted OEM wheels.

It wouldn't be a bad thing to do. Powder coat instead of paint like stated above if possible. It would be a cheap way to just do something diff than stock to your Fit until you decide if/when you want to do more (new wheels altogether for example).
