    i would black out the emblems, if you still have them on there. Also if you want a cheap way to black your rims out Plastidip is amazing. 6 bucks a can. I just did my yesterday and it cost me about 12 bucks. I used the deck of cards trick. Made it much easier than taking them completely off. Best part about plastidip is if you hate it let them dry and if peels off perfectly.

    I did about 3. First i put a light coat on, then went around and put a heavier coat on. Then again a heavier coat. I waited about 20 minutes between coats, even tho this stuff dries in a minute or 2. Then i rolled my truck forward about a foot and spray 3 more coats wherever i missed some or if it needed more black. Then you just stand back and enjoy your new rims. Also the today i walked past my truck and saw that i missed a spot just a bit. Not bad at all. Cost me a total of 13 bucks. 2 cans at about 6 bucks from lowes and a deck of ordinary playing cards.
