Default Repainted/powdercoated BBS LM's - go or no go?

I've been given a decent price on some LM's but they were refurbed and painted/powdercoated from black to silver.

I am really after the stock hypersilver look from bbs and I know how tough it can be to match to this. Should I be concerned with this refurb? Anything specific I should be looking/asking for in the finish since I can't see them in-person? Ignore the stretched tires im going to fix that

Thanks guys

Painted is okay. Powder coating weakens the wheel.
