    or

    Wheelers

    Don't worry about center caps, look better without them anyway. ;)

    IMO the Rockcrawler style looks better than Wheeler's wheels.

    If you can do $100 ish per wheel then you can get some cast alloys instead of the stamped steelies.

    want em cheap? get em used...

    you can get into a used set of black steel wheels for as little as $80 for a set of 4...

    of course, finding them on sale will take a while...

    If you already have silver ones you don't like, cheapest would be a spray can.

    Small lift and a topper!
    15" or 16" stock alloys look good painted black or gunmetal grey. I get compliments on my wheels, and they are just Duplicolor wheel painted 15" stock alloys. (Here's a tip, to paint a wheel with the tire on, get a pack of index cards and stick them between the lip of the wheel and the tire bead - easier than using masking tape).

    procomps 8069 are quite affordable at around 100$/wheel and are a nice lookin wheel to. rattlecannin ur stock set would be a cheaper route though.

    that would depend on your paint choice and the amount of prep work done. but the beauty of having rattle canned wheels is how easy it is to do a touchup.

    American racing steelies. Or 99 cent can of krylon black.

    Yea, it'll chip and whatever, but as someone else said, touch-ups are a piece of cake.

    I'll feel your pain wanting nice black wheels, yet being a broke-ass college kid.

    What do you consider cheap? I got my MB Chaos 16" wheels brand new from Discount Tire for $100 apiece. That's a damn good deal
