Want to paint my aftermarket chrome wheels. Anybody got pics of theirs painted black?

The paint won't adhere to the chrome. You have to strip all the chrome off via sandblasting or sodablasting or what have you.

Or use a little sweat and elbow grease and sand them down really well before you paint. That's what I did with the chrom wheel I'm using for my spare.
