chrome tube steps

i have a set of the chrome tube steps on my black 06 dc. i hate the look of chrome imo, just wondering what everyone thinks about painting them- either black them out or some other option. a friend mentioned paintin them magnetic grey just so its a little different but i'm not sure if that would be noticable.

thanks guys!

the stock tube step from factory would look awsome. the color of it i mean. my buddy had oval tube from westin and spayed it to match the factory tube step style and it looks awsome. he has almost the same truck as yours

i never really liked them and thought about getting rid of them (sell them) but when i factored in how much they cost me and how much they were actually worth, i couldnt make what i wanted. so i've become accustomed to them now! my only issue is that the chrome is startin to rust a lil under the plastic step pads and i want to fix that issue before their too bad

i already tried some stuff to stop the rusting but it didnt seem to hold up. powdercoating might be an option! just trying to find an option that would be cool

Line-X or powdercoat are going to be your best bets..... Cheap to do either.
