Fj rims

Found 4 fj rims silver for 400 is that a good deal.

I wanted the black ones forgot the right name.

Can i paint them or have them powder coated or would it not look good?

Thanks for any info!

I had the silver ones, then painted them black and they look pretty good. I got them for $125/wheel brand new. So if they're in good shape, I say good deal.

No offense whatsoever, but I like the silver FJ wheels better on the silver truck! Looks good either way.

No offense taken. I was set on silver (had them for 3+ years like that), but once I got my bumper, I decided to go away with all the chrome and black out as much I could.

There's a bunch of write ups on here, but basically, clean, sand, clean, prime, paint.

I cleaned it with a regular kitchen sponge (rough side), then used sand paper, then cleaned it off with a tack cloth, prime, and paint. For primer and paint I just used duplicolor. The main thing with painting is the cleaning and the sanding. I spent a lot of time working on that.

I didn't powdercoat because it would probably come off off roading anyway. Rattle can is such a fast and easy fix!

GL!
