    Hey there! Was just wanting some input on my wheels. Was thinking about going black, But not sure. How hard would it be to paint a polished wheel? Would it be easier to just buy new black wheels? Or should I just leave them as is.

    I like them, but I also think a black wheel would look badass. More "rugged" :D
    If new black, please tell me which once you would choose. Thanks!

    I prefer black wheels myself. Maybe get a quote on getting them powdercoated.

    Try to find some pics of that same rim painted black. That might help you make the choice.

    why don't you have those powder coated black. i think they look good like that, maybe a simulated beadlock kit is what you need. i know omf beadlocks sell kits.

    I think you would be good to go either way. They look good now because they match your bumpers, but if you went black, they would match the fender flares, door handles, side mirrors, etc.;)

    ^^^ thats what I was thinking too. But just not sure If I want to go black, bc everyday I see more and more people that have my truck with black rims. It does look good though! just not sure. Maybe what I need is both... Black wheel with some accents? :confused:

    Thanks! well Im still undescided, I think I might just keep what I got for now. Maybe when I get new tires I will switch to a black wheel.

    Ofcourse by then, Black will probably be out of style, and polished and chrome back In. lol... :)

    Yeah honestly, I like the wheels you got now. I've seen some trucks kinda like yours and I was digging the polished wheels better then the blacks.;)

    I agree. I've never been a fan of black wheels. You can't see the detail in the wheel unless you are very close. All black wheels look the same to me from more than 20 feet away.

    I have the Hoss wheels on mine. I think they look good. If anything is overplayed, I think it's chrome. That's been around for decades.
