    i'd sell 'em and get new, black rims if you're wanting to black them out. i think black wheels look great on a white truck.

    Stuff that makes it easier to run over other stuff.
    I'm usually a huge fan of black wheels but I really like them how they are now on your truck. I have to be totally honest just to make the decision as difficult as possible for you. :)

    looks good as it is and painting them black would too. do like someone above said, get some plasti-dip at home depot for a few bucks before you do the real thing. you can see how it will look before it's permanent. if you don't like it, just peel it off. if you do, go get them done for real.

    Black rims are so damn cliche (yes, even myself!) and your truck looks clean as is. Maybe if you had the bhlm or other stuff blacked out, but they work nicely as is, I think.
