    bought some duplicolor satin black wheel paint... gonna knock it out while theyre still mounted with tires... gonna tape them off, not too worried, getting them powder coated later, just dont like the silver on my truck now... should I do anything before I paint? maybe some self etching primer? little sand paper? green scuff pad? dont want to work too hard, but want a decent job... to hold up to pressure washers, wheeling, etc... you know?

    thanks!

    tips and tricks would be appreciated... ive painted before, pretty good at it, but always looking to improve my jobs!

    God I'm so sick of black or chrome wheels. One would think those were the only two colors options on the planet for wheel colors.

    They look good the way they are.

    i feel ya man... but with this truck, black wheels is the best option, the silver doesnt go with it at all...

    ive had gold wheels, bronze, red, black, silver, white, i think thats about it, minus wheels strips, haha... i dont go with "the flow" or the norm by any means, but in this situation, my wheels need to match the truck they roll with.
