Default Help me make or find orange & chrome 1/10 wheels?

Hi all-
I'm new to 1/10 electric road cars and need some advice on how to get the wheels I want. In the attached picture I like the chrome wheel with 20 orange spoke. What I have now are the plain orange wheel with 12 spokes. What's the best way to get orange and chrome wheels? Should I just paint the edges chrome and call it good? Should I buy a chrome wheel with white spokes and paint them orange? Maybe do something else?

These are standard HPI wheels off their Ford GT RS4 Sport 3, they don't offer them for sale individually and I really don't know enough about the wheels to shop other manufacturers so I could use some guidance here also. I'd be happy to take the chrome rims off one wheel and the orange spokes off another set of wheels and combine them together to get the color combo I want. Do people do that? I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!
-Scott

Those look pretty slick, I wonder if they were special run and discontinued?

I would probably buy the chrome/white and hand paint orange if it were me
